MWMBT Race Day- St Ives 23-12-06

Matt and I turned up for one of the Manly Warringah Mountain Bike Club race meetings, this one at St Ives. This was a great afternoon and something NoBMoB should join more often.

Matt and I both signed on as Group C. I was well placed in this group as I finished last in both our races. You know I couldn’t believe these guys didn’t stop every 100 metres or so for me to catch up, bastards.

Guess who was the stand out winner in both our races? yes it was steroids Matt. I told you all I was right.

Jokes aside Matt really kicked ass, so much so that he has been up graded to B division. I recon he would give the A's a run for their money!

Some thing to think about Rob, Craig & Leigh?

Greg (Pikey)

Glad you guys had a good time. I think that was the second time Matt had gone off the front in C grade so the pressure will be on for him to sign up for B grade next time.

I have a few pics of the day here

Unfortunately I seemed to have missed Matt & Pikey in action.

Next race is on 20/1/07

And maybe doing some bike riding too...

Had a top day, in my defence it was only my second race and I came third in the November one in C, after third place stacked, but yes B grade beckons...

There's also the Wednesday night TORC dirt crits at St Ives for the dead keen. I'll give them a go if I can make it from work in time.
