Insomnia 24

Yes this is wear I will be on the weekend. Can't wait to hit the trails rain, hail or shine. Hubcap I am not racing solo this race I will be in a 2 man team instead. You have some pretty tough competition ahead of you though with the likes of Sick Mick and Matt.

I have been pretty busy lately but still managing to get the K's under the belt, anyway looking forward to catching up with the usual crew and getting the tyres dirty
If you have read the latest Enduro mag you will find a speel on Esi grips, and they great. I highly recommend them if you are having trouble with comfy grips

Mt Perry

Firstly I just want to say it was a great track with good hard climbs and big rewards coming back down to transition. I am already making plans to go back up for next years event. My goals for this race was to try and get into the top 5 if not 3, give the XTC a run and have fun.

As it turned out this was not my race, going into the first cornerI think I was in around 15th and after the first couple of climbsI am pretty sure I made it to around 6th and that was pretty much the end of it for me. Coming down the first technical switch back I ended up over the bars and flated about 2 minute after that.

To cut along story and excuses short I ended up pulling out of the race after three laps, not real proud of it but thats racing.

The XTC is wicked

Next up Insomnia 24

Well done to Andy Fellows who took number one spot and to Sick Mick who came 2nd in his catergory and 5th over all.

My new Bike

Here it is the my new ride from Giant. I have changed a couple of things from when I got it, I took the 819 mvic wheel set off and put my XT wheelset on instead and also put a set of Next raceface Carbon bars on it to. After going for a thrash on the 50km Noosa enduro track I have got to say it's very sweet bike to ride and very very comfortable cant wait to have a good run on it at the Mt Perry race this weekend.
I have also been trailing a set of Esi grips and they seem to be pretty good also, will do a review after this weekend.
