Bummer I missed the race but the MTB was still good. Best news is Birthday today (47) and I just went for a play on my new toy.... (my wife and daughter are so cool)
Fibretec DH drop, 204 Kahalanis and orange inheats, my street isn't very steep but it feels so stable, hanging to try a real hill :) Now I have 12 months to get ready for Bathurst.....
dude thats is a killer setup, might have to kill you for it!
ryan the girl I can't remember her name but she is borrowing a set of my gloves, she had a major stack when I was first teaching her lucky I made her wear my helmet took a chunk out of her hip and elbow, went and bought a helmet straight away no stopping her!
congrats to everyone that raced, the next one will be faster I assure you.
whats the go? whos doing the next race? I dont mind throwing one together soonish
I'm keen as long as I am available.
Does anyone have any bungees? I was having a play at Stromlo on the Crit track on the weekend. If you Bungee launched at the top and headed down the straight towards the building, hung a left through to the other part of the track (nice chicane) and made up some curves into the big flat area infront of the building it would make a nice head to head format.
I've read the bungees are supposed to get you up around 50 kph so if you went into the top of the track at that speed it could be interesting. Run 2 person heats just need 2 bungees....
1. they are really expensive
2. no skill involved and yes being able to push is a skill!
ash you have next race if you want announce it and its yours!
Ok here are two spots that look good for a race. The former looks decent but the latter looks really really good...
Mt Stromlo a good spot to race? How's the pavement? With all the MTB around there I feel like they'd be ok to skaters...
Here's the other, an hour drive but looks so sick! 2.8k and pavement looks nice...
In the middle of nowhere (read, no cars) and great pavement...
I've been trying to get dudes to go to wee jasper for a while. Surface could be a bit rough and the road can have a few cars on the weekend (its a popular caving/bushwalking/general outside activities kinda place) but other than that it looks sick. The decent to the river is pretty rad if I remember correctly. But I don't think there was much room for error. There's a sweet lookn' bit of wiggle on the other side of the river too but I think the surface may be a bit rubbish.
Also someone post up a video already!
