Wow!!! is all I can say. Best race so far in terms of track and event. The single track through Majura was simply awesome as was the switch back climb and the luge downhill sections of Stomlo. Lots of variety including some road and firetrail make this a true adventure. My time was a little disappointing but I have never ridden Stomlo before so I was pacing myself for the final climb. At the beginning of Stomlo I crashed in some thick sand and remove some skin from my knee, but despite having no water left I managed to stave off cramps, climb and finish.

I am in again next year for sure.
