A short lap of Rydal

Rydal is cool in that you can link segments together in a myriad of different ways to keep it all fresh

This week we did out Jive Turkey, then crossed over to link in Robbies Run. Up Snake tails. Hard right and into Hazard County. Hard left and back along the dump run.

I caught lap on the gopro using a gimbal mounted to chesty

Lap 1

A little faster chasing Watto and Gav down Hazard County

2013 Sheep Station Fiddy K Results

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

OK all thanks for coming out and making it such a great day.

The Prelim results are attached. I think I might have stuffed up the 25km and pairs podium so apologies to those effected.

If any one thinks there is a mistake in the results let me know and I'll look into it.

Without wanting to turn this into a pat on the back fest there are a few people we need to thank.

Every week I head out to Rydal, set up the track and tell myself "I'm not going to sprint off the start this week. I haven't got that fitness."

Every week I line up at the start (no warm up), give the speech, say "Every one ready, set, Go!"

Every week we take off the red mist descends and I bust my gut to get a good spot into the single track, send my heart rate through the roof and then blow up trying to keep my spot.

every week I die in the arse in the second or third lap, get heart rate back under control then come home strongish but suffering

Wet Day at Rydal

Had a fun day out with the boys, not too many takers due to the pouring rain... but the Chocolate Foot people were there to film some footage of our illustrious leader and our awesome track for the upcoming 8hr Smiling

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.
