One Lap More

One lap more than round two but couldnt ride for the four hours I think the christmas pudding has made me soft.

Finished

Not a great day was feeling very flat for this race and had nothing in the legs not sure if it was hot but it felt bloody hot I pushed on for 3hrs and managed 7 laps running out of water (went through 3.5 litres) at transition was enough for me to finish the day so decided to pull the pin.

Scored a cheaky 3rd place out of 4 riders in SS solo category having only ridden for 75% of the race time but way down in the overall standings will have to do better at the next round.

Faster at night

I did not deal well with the het. My fastest time was the last lap when it was cooler.

It was Damed Hot

Reached up to 31 Degrees which made it very hard in the middle of the day. It slowed me right down.

This was the first time I had done the Oaks Up & Back. When we arrived at the first gate (start of single track) on the way up I wasn't feeling the best. I knew it was going to be a hard ride and I wasn't wrong as I was already stuffed. I pushed on and with one stop at the helipad and then to the top. I actually thought the group would have started descending before I made it. I arrived with time to down a Gu stretch and we were off again.

Rob starting the climb

It was a very nice day at Yellowmundee this weekend for their round of the Working Week Series. Good course, dry weather (just) and plenty of top NoBMoB company and banter made for a most enjoyable race day.

Mind you, the early start (6am) after late night (2am) wasn't easy, nor was the freezing start (yes, the car thermometer saw 1 degree on the way in).

Sam & I had paired up in the duo of 'Two worn out Nobs', the start being decided on the flip of a coin which saw me shivering by the river just gone 8am.

OVERALL
My first actual 'event'. I did 1:07:00. If you take the total active riders (500 or something) and divide it by my position (182) and multiply by 100 you get 34. Which means I came 34/100 which I'm happy with. I was in 30-39 category.

EARLY ON

A great ride

Thanks to all for a great ride and the legs are feeling it tonight. Just remember that every bit of pain we feel now is a little less we have to feel on the Dirtworks. I kept myself that as I continuously watched Steve and others disappear out of sight. Cheers Lincoln

An interesting thing happened at Lidsdale today:

Liam, Lee, Rob, Shane, Steve and Bruce turn up for the ride with everyone in good spirits, despite the 0 degree temps at 9:00 a.m. Lee was up and at 'em at 4:30 am to make the ride. Rob was similar?

Plenty of frost on the ground in Lithgow. Ice has formed over all of the puddles in the ground, making crunching noises as you ride over them. Serious mist condenses with each exhale. My knees have turned purple. The 5 other guys look like they are on a Himalayan expedition with all the layers of long clothes they are wearing. See photo:

Wimps?
