My first 4 hour endurance event....didn't stop going on my singlespeed....no cramping and really enjoyed it. Great to meet some NobMobbers briefly. Well done everyone!

I entered my first lap race after an invite from @sikllama to do the 7 hour singleton round of the shimano gp. At the start of my day at 4:15am I was questioning my decision to do the race as that seemed an rather ungodly hour to get up on a Saturday morning. But I got myself into the car and picked up @hawkeye on the way. We arrived at around 7:30 and found the perfect spot to set up right amongst the big guys of the race, which is where we belonged Eye-wink.

First Lap Based Event - not racing for sheep stations!!

So, with a truly last minute leave pass granted at 3pm on Friday (thanks you Mrs. Pyrate!!), I quickly registered on-line for the 4 Hour Solo and started thinking about the logistics of getting ready for the race - what kit was clean? How many gels have I got? Hydration pack or bidons?

I was keen to give this race a go both as a solid training hit out but also to get a feel for lap based events, which I had never done before, as I have an eye on the Chocolate Foot Single-track Mind series later this year.

Perfect Conditions

The cloud cover stayed all day and the forecast 29 degrees never arrived.

Well done to everyone who raced. It was quite a pedally course and the promised dusty and loose conditions were accurately predicted.

Shut the gate on your way out

Round 2 of the Rocky Trail Shimano MTB GP was held for the first time just outside of Singleton on a club track which rewarded those who could hold corner speed on loose, dusty, and at times, off camber corners. Relatively flat which a few small pinch climbs it meant there were few opportunities to freewheel - a totally different course than that at Glenrock last month.

Club DH Build/Possible Ride tomorrow

A track inspection has been carried out this morning at Awaba, and the track is just too wet to ride on. Therefore, the event for 17/1/16 has been cancelled.

It will probably be still too wet to move it to the following weekend, so we are not planning on doing that at this stage. Keep an eye on the website for further information.

But you can still come out to Awaba on Sunday and help out with some trail work. Rick will be leading a crew so come out early and meet up with them. Give Rick a call on 0448 933482 for more information, or to find out where to go when you get there.

Quick point form review;
- Different track to last year with the removal of all but the start fireroad and primarily single track.
- Passing through the single track was fairly tough but after the rain the previous night, the track was quite grippy.
- The nature of the track suited a more skilled rider, rather than a powerhouse.
- The last run into transition was super fun.
- I didn't stack it this year.
- Hooked up with 3 blokes I'd never raced with before.
- We came 3rd in cat and overall.
- I got soaked in my swag from the rain that started after the race.
- Good times.
