What to do when it's raining

here's a great idea if you're stuck inside when it's pouring outside and you really want to get on the bike:

Well it was a little chilly out there but it didn't take long to warm up.

I followed Barnsie up into the single trail and he set a nice pace as we headed up the little climb for the first time. Brett was nipping at my heals and we openned a little gap on the rest of the field.

Then Barnsie jumps off his bike and start running. The angle log had caused him some drama in practice so he choose a safer cyclocross method. I bunny hop he log and almost land on top of him, get shoved wide into the long grass but somehow manage to get around him as he remounts, Brett comes with me.

Ah Scribblies

Is there some sort of temporal disturbace at Scribblies, some secret mountain magic that lets the down hill bit go for just about ever, berm after berm, corners that seem to loop back just past 360* without actually crossing back on them selves...

Then you get to the bottom resigned to long slog back up but you pop out onto the fire trail, 2 pedal gets you up the small pinch and you have a short flat pedal back to the start to pick another track and do it all again.

Big props to the trail fairies, they done alright and more than alright.

After a bit of fast talking I managed to get my brother keen on the idea of a road trip to Parkes to compete in his first 50 km event with his new trek 29er.Another of my Brothers heard we were doing the big foot and wanted in on the fun so he and his wife also entered .

Driving home yesterday afternoon I thought that its nearly the end of the year and I’ve finally finished a 100K race (this year’s seen a Dirtworks DNF and a Husky last min change to the 50) sure I did the nearly 400K Mountains to beach, but the longest MTB race stage was “only” 90K’s.

What a great race , no mud and very few hills to contend with .
There was quite a strong headwind on some of the open paddock sections making it a tough slog
Not really technical but very fast and flowy and peddaling for 95% of the lap
Managed to wobble over the line around 5:38 , unofficial time , with a very dodgey tummy
Nearly got taken out by three Roos but stopped just in time as they jumped across the track .

The last quarter of the race hurt but I am happy to have finished all three 100k races I have attempted this year , Capital Punishment , the Husky and now Big Foot
