What a brilliant weekend!

I can sum up the 24 solo champs in 2 words...

SUPPORT CREW !

We had the best team on the hill. Dylan (Ladytoast) was my support director and he did a flawless job. Including non-stop tech/nutrition & emotional support ....as well as some sponsorship. At one stage the only thing I owned was my helmet everything else belonged to Dylan, go the Yeti! Eye-wink Thanks mate! There's no way I would have made it without you on the team.

Good Stuff

Great weekend.

Finished 6th in age group (last still riding), 7th singlespeed (last still riding) and 38th overall from 57 finishers and 73 starters.

Its a good thing this race is only on once a year as it is a real battle just to keep riding and finish which this year I did.

Just received this media release from some mates. Sounds fun!

Craving Capital Punishment?

5 January 2009

By now, all mountain bikers in the country would have heard of - or ridden for the lucky ones - Mt Stromlo, host of the 2008 UCI World Cup and the 2009 UCI World Championships! Chances are Majura Pines also rings a bell as the headquarters for the Mont 24Hour MTB event. Finally, Canberrean riders at least would know of these other local gems that are Sparrow Hill and Bruce Ridge...

Rest Stop

The group take a well earned rest after the silly push to the top of Majura. Not so many smiles here!

Top of Majura

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Top of an absolutely killer push. There seemed to be a DH course running just off the firetrail a little way down.
At this point we were pretty much at the same altitude as the planes landing into Canberra Airport.

Hill climb competition

The group trying to conquer a silly steep hill.
Equal 1st: Gazza, Scott
2nd: Junkie. And almost stacking it in the process as you can see.
3rd: Steve
4th: Paul, Damien and Gonz
