This was our (me and my gf Rach) first ever ride at Awaba and our first go at the Spring Fat Tyre. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and loved the track, the people and the organisation, we'll def be back for more! Some highlights include:

- only 1 stack each and nothing major. mine resulting in a bent rear brake rotor (which the CBD guys fixed in a jiffy) and Rach's in some scrapes and bruises (but they didn't start hurting until the day after!)

Great day Indeed, all ran smoothly for our team a few minor transition hicups and an off for me on my second lap but still managed 36.55 being my slowest lap and my fastest a 36.25,pretty pleased all my laps were within 30 secs of each other. Smiling
Thanks to Brian and Tien for being great team mates and thanks to Brians folks for the hospitality.overall a terrific day with some great riding on
what I consider the best XC track in NSW, can't wait for more.
Well done to all the mobers who competed and especially the junior winners awesome effort.

Never ridden Awaba before and will definately be going back there. What a sweet sweet piece of track and a great venue for a long day of racing. This was my first solo event and I was a tad nervous as I clicked in and made my way down the fire road to the start of the single track. I started near the back of the pack and was happy to cruise the first lap following a long train of riders. No need to panic ... I've got 8 more hours of this ! I couldn't wipe the smile off my face as I made my way around the track.

Fat Tyre Fest Fun

I entered the Spring Fat Tyre Festival in a team of 3 with Craig (craked) and Tien (tienster). This was my second team event and the first time with 3. The plan was to head up Saturday to register and do final lap before Sunday. I picked up Tien and we arrived at the track at about 3pm to find Craig had already set up a gazebo reserving a spot nice and close to the transition area. We registered (no queuing for us), got our bikes ready and had a nice cruisy lap.

Had an excellent 'Trailbreakers' skills session with Brad Mertens today. Spent the morning focusing on track stands, ratcheting, slow turns and bunny hops. We also spent time looking at bike set-up - I received some great tips on tire pressure, suspension set-up and tire choice.
After lunch, the focus shifted to cornering, technical drops and climbs.

Another fantastic days racing in the Rocky Trail GP series. Being a bit soft I can't solo 8 hours but I'm liking this format a lot. Even though I finished before the 4h mark. Yeah - double soft! Eye-wink

Although (sorry Martin) I'm still not completely set on the whole turn-up-qualify-relax-race part but an extra hour in bed can be afforded to those who don't care to qualify and might take that option in the future.
