Get Out There And Ride

Yes Sir!!

Monday morning, Rhino and I loaded up the AyUp Defender and headed out in the rain to Woodend...

The rain had cleared when we arrived but returned mid ride. The first few KM of trail was a bit strange, riding in the wet again but soon enough we didn't care and were racing along not even bothering to avoid the puddles....
Sweet singletrack made that little more interesting in the wet... Someone have a sitdown??? We both had "moments" out there
Some of the trails we rode are used in the DirtWorks 100km Classic. Well worth a look this year. 7th of November...

Wet trails. Covered in mud. Awesome....

The trail goes this way........

Snooze You Lose

Lysterfield Dirt Crits.

Last Lap.

Having watched Steele successfully attack and ride off on lap 3, I had tried to get back on in lap 4 and 5 with no luck.

Just one lap to finish, fire road climb, turn, climb again, drop into singletrack, skip over roots, drift, jump, pump, attack short climb, rail corner, decend fire road, hard left into the final fire road climb.

Quick look over the shoulder, can't see anyone, roll up the climb, not far now, 20m and a rider sprints past.....

Scott Chancellor....... Ben moves from 2nd to 3rd.

Lesson?? The Race isn't over till you cross the line...
