Just went for a strap with Fellows on the world 24hr course, pretty tough little course but it's going to be fun. I will hopefully get some photos up soon

PAIN is just the WEAKNESS leaving the BODY

Well it's less then a week till we board the plane and land in Canada for the worlds. Have I done enough training I think so but I will let you know when I get back. Ay Up will be over there in force with Mr Fellows taking on the big boys for the World title and myself having a crack at my age group 25-29.

Had a crack at the noosa enduro on the weekend and just got away with a 3rd place finish in the open class. The course is pretty taxing especially in the 2nd half I faded pretty bad at about the 60-70km mark due to my poor nutrition paln. Good race, not my usual type of race and I will be back next year. No more sand bagging in the opens though HUBCAP.

Just to let you guys now I will be selling my Fox RL with remote lockout once I get back from Canada so if anyone is interested give me a bell.

Whats Cracking

Well its not long til Canada now but the Noosa enduro is this weekend which is good becuase I am a bit more focused on that then thinking about the Worlds. I have no real expectations for the Enduro as it is 100km race and not the type of race that I usually do, it will be good training though. Training lately has consisted of longer less intense rides and after this weekend I will be tappering off.

I don't have to much else to report.

Bring on the worlds

Keep the legs burning

Insomnia 24hr Report

Well it was a dusty dry course. NO the Insomnia lived up to expectations wet wet wet. The course got shortneed to 7km and about 6.5km of this was soaking. I didn't do this race solo as the World 24hr is just around the corner so the 2 man team was the go.

My partner in crime was Mr machine Fellows, basically the paln was to get out and smash the first few hrs and see how we were travelling then do 3 or 4 laps at a time to get some km's into the legs. As it turned out we managed to get well out in front and by midnight we both were sick of the Mud and the bike component eating conditions as were alot of other poeple. We came first in the race and were fare enough in the lead to enjoy the morning without any time on the bike.

I want to say thanks Andrew from Ay Up for the Heater and for the best lights Ever made, also to my partner in crime Andy for a good race and a big congratulations needs to go out to the solo guys and girls who raced the whole race you guys are legends.
