Track was about 8.7km with 150ish of vert climbing.
I got a start in the second row and once the gun went off I was sitting top 10. After a small slip up on the first the leaders got away, but with 4hrs anything can happen. I got around the rest of the course without a drama.
The race went on and I got over taken then I would get infront again but to be honest it was great just racing again. The fh really started for me when the rain set in and everything got slippery. My training in parklands really showed. towards the end of the race I was startng to cramp and with 9minutes left on the clock I decided to call it a day.
All up i had a great day racing caught up with heaps of really good poeple and managed to sneak in some box time with a 3rd.
Thanks too Venture cycles, Anytime Fitness mtb, Ay up and the lad off the team
