Had a great day, bunged my shoulder in the first 10 mins. Kept on going and finished in around 6:30:00
Decided to head back to Sydney after a little nap.

Incorporated the Bigfoot into a weekend road trip with a mate to watch the Panthers v Dragons at Wollongong on Friday night and a drive across through Goulburn, Crookwell, Boorowa and Eugowra on Saturday. Not the best pre-race regime I've ever put together, but a quiet night on Saturday after dinner at Parkes Leagues club meant a reasonably fresh start on Sunday morning.

Lovely night for ride.

the stars were out in force as Richard, Meggsie, Charlie and myself headed off around the first half of the Rydal loop. At the far end we headed leftonthe fire trail and took int he new stuff out through the diggings and then followed the railway line out to the highway.

After bit of dicking around trying to avoid the highway itself we gave up and ventured up the tarmac and across Pikes lane back to the western road and then ground our way up to Mt Lambie to Clints place.

Tough day on the bike

I knew I hadn't done as much riding as I would have liked leading into this one but I was feeling pretty good and was reasonably confident.

I got off to a good start up the fire trail and entered the single trail in the lead and settled down into a tempo and rhythm I was comfortable with.

Back out on the fire trail Beggsie blasts past near the top of the hill. I was feeling good and thought of challenging but in my last race (round #1) I rode much better by just sticking to my own tempo so Beggs hits the main ST a little in front of me.

Nice And Easy

Great to be all sorted and back on the bike racing again took it real easy and enjoyed the ride.

Where was everyone I know the tour was on but my 3 hours sleep was more than enough to get through.

Wow 7th in C grade got to be happy with that after two weeks with the flu staying up to watch the tour before the race and no riding for the last few months.

Myself, Phil and Mick met up with Joe and Harold for a blast on the Mt York convict trails.

It was a nice night and as we plodded up Berghoffers it didn't take long for me to start unzipping the windstopper vest.

By the top I was ready to peal the vest and outer jersey off and noticed Joe was already down to a tee shirt.

It's been a while since we've done Mt York and Lockyers would have to be my all time favourate trrail. It has a little bit if every thing and a whole lot of fun.

First timer - father and son

First time doing this race and had a blast. Was hoping to crack 50 minutes and happily did...by 13 Secs!!! Just. Might run it next year, but it's 1 year away and will probably change my mind.
Very proud of my 12 yr old son, though, normally struggles up a few hills, but killed it and did a great time of 1hr 05min!! Hope he keeps it up.
Was good to see others I"ve met through other meets and hope to meet more of you.
Catch ya's round

The reason to do it again next year !

That was my first CareFlight race and I am pretty happy with my result. I guess I would probably have done <50min if my front wheel have'nt touch the rear wheel of the guy ahead me in the first down hill Sad I know that's pretty sad after only 5 min...
Anyway thanks again for the buddy who stopped his race for helping me.

Pushed hard and it was still a heap of fun the whole way.

Had a great ride yesterday and did way better than I expected. Spent most of the first part riding with an ADF guy and eventually 1 other pulled in with us. Just before the Helipad Gavin and another bloke caught up and the 5 of us trained it till the end. I wen't out front on the last bit of bennetts and cooked, dropped off the pack by 20m and didn't get them back till the last decents as the pack was all over the shop on those last few turns.
It was good to meet up with so many people at the end that I have met over the last 12 months through BMORC, Dirty Tri's and other events.
