MTB 1:21:00 [3] 30.0 km (2:42 / km)

Was meant to be a easy ride with the L-Train, but he has going hard. May have to train with my old training partner, she is back in town and much nicer to train with, more my pace. Up to the back of Sandhurst Res, along the water race to Hunts Gap Rd, and back home via some single tracks and Spring Gully Res.

VOA presentations at Hanging Rock, Started out with Bruce and Adam, were together for the 1st 16 out of 30, when Adam went one way and Bruce the other, I stayed with Bruce, met up with Adam with one control to go, but Adam had two to go. Bruce was to good today and won the finish, but not by much.

MTB race (Vic MTBO Champs) 1:26:32 [5] 31.0 km (2:47 / km)

Hadn't done a MTBO event in a while, was told to start and I hadn't folded my map yet, quickly put it on the mapboard and headed of, but went straight over the big hill. Not use to looking wide, got into lots of lactate. Tried to settle down on the long 2nd leg, but still in a bit of a panic, got into the grove before I hit the technical part, caught Bryan , he tried to sit on me, so I had to push harder.
Clean ride and felt much stronger towards the end, got 3rd place, 10 secs in front of Grant Lebbink, also happy that AJ did not catch me, as he started 6 mins after I did


Didnt feel to good at the start today, planting Maize until midnight the night before is very much to blame. Got home at 2 am and up again at 6.30. Wont be doing that again

Adam set me up by starting 2 mins after me, had caught me and out of sight as we started the 1st big climb up Bon Accord Spur, was up in contact with him as we went along the 1st spur, went to the front when he fell over and pushed it up the last climb to the top, then went as fast as I could along the ridge to the finish. Got Adam by 2 mins, but Hanny did better than I
