Incorporated the Bigfoot into a weekend road trip with a mate to watch the Panthers v Dragons at Wollongong on Friday night and a drive across through Goulburn, Crookwell, Boorowa and Eugowra on Saturday. Not the best pre-race regime I've ever put together, but a quiet night on Saturday after dinner at Parkes Leagues club meant a reasonably fresh start on Sunday morning.

Well another Mt Lambie race survived.

Another big thanks to Clint for inviting us out, providing a kick arse track and running to timing. Thanks to Brad too for the help setting up the arrows and clearing some of the fallen trees.

Mt Lambie... Not sure what everyone else thinks but I reckon its one of the most brutal XC tracks going, hard but doable with a big sense of satisfaction in being able to finish. I really like the track but suffer when trying to race it.

Lovely night for ride.

the stars were out in force as Richard, Meggsie, Charlie and myself headed off around the first half of the Rydal loop. At the far end we headed leftonthe fire trail and took int he new stuff out through the diggings and then followed the railway line out to the highway.

After bit of dicking around trying to avoid the highway itself we gave up and ventured up the tarmac and across Pikes lane back to the western road and then ground our way up to Mt Lambie to Clints place.

6Ft Track...

Nice Sunday ride with the boys...

Peter, Kevin, Richard and myself embarked on the 6ft track today...

Was a chilly 5deg when I left Blackheath at 7.30 to meet the guys at Peter's place, but that didn't compare to the chilliness of the temps at the top of the Jenolan rd.

We had a great ride, loads of mud, sand and full creeks to cross... lots of wildlife and that silent stillnes that you get when you're out there in the bush.

Enjoy the pics...

Rydal Win

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

It has taken roughly 11 years but, I have finally won a race.
Woo Hoo.
I'm not sure whether my lap times were that good and there was not too many people in the race, but I will take the win.
Pleased Chad wasn't there. Maybe it had something to do with the new tractor. Pivot Mach 429
I have 3 big races over the next 3 months.
Back Yamma in September, Kanangra classic in October and highland Fling in November.

Tough day on the bike

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I knew I hadn't done as much riding as I would have liked leading into this one but I was feeling pretty good and was reasonably confident.

I got off to a good start up the fire trail and entered the single trail in the lead and settled down into a tempo and rhythm I was comfortable with.

Back out on the fire trail Beggsie blasts past near the top of the hill. I was feeling good and thought of challenging but in my last race (round #1) I rode much better by just sticking to my own tempo so Beggs hits the main ST a little in front of me.

Lithgow - Capertee Valley

Peter Beggs and myself had a fabulous day out...

Lithgow to Capertee via Blackfellows Hands, Baal Bone Gap, Gardens of Stone NP into Capertee Valley, and to the Hwy @ Capertee.

Weather was exceptional and we had a hoot through some of the most picturesque country around...
