Flying Steve

Thanks Rob for the write up of the Sunday race. You seem to have most points covered, at least from what you saw. Nice work hacking on Bruce too. But you did well Bruce - a top time given our poor preparation.

After an enjoyable road trip from Sydney to Coffs, many of the group decide that the Mt Coramba downhill trail is a capital idea, given we are racing the next day. New trails!! Preparation? What preparation. To illustrate, Steve and Gazza had turned up earlier in the day and had been hike-a-biking up steep hills (err, mountains?) because they couldn't find the proper tracks. More good work! Oh Gaz, you would come to regret this!

To describe the location of this place, the road turn off for Mt Coramba is about 1km north of the big banana. You drive along a tight and twisty road high up towards the top of a mountain, that ends with a picture perfect and stunning view of the surrounding area. This includes a 180 degree view of the pacific ocean. If we weren't so keen to get riding, you could look at the view for hours. The landscape is steep, with a mix of Eucalypts and rainforest. Very different to what we are used to on the northern beaches.
