i had a great fun day out riding some rather slippery trails. it was just like a fun day out with your mates with a bit more stop starting then usual which resulted in some shivering action but we all survived it :)
my first run was way too rugged, should have changed my low profile summer tires for some with a bit of grip! oh well i will learn for next time, i hope.
had one massive spill in pretty much the first corner of the course (it had become way more greasy since the practice run), had to fix handle bars as well as seat before i could ride the rest of the track. next run was a little better with still some offs but not loosing quite as much time on this run, managed to pull out fastest female run of the day on that run but still no chance to catch up on my lost time from my first run. Janine Kavanagh and Katie O'Neill took first and second overall ahead of me. Thanks for a fun day everyone!
thanks Tim and Belinda Farmer (N Duro Events) and their helpers for a fantastic event!
Well done Carl Jones on winning the mens race (fastest combined time but also had the fastest race run of the day), Louis Hamilton 2nd and Keegan Wright 3rd.
sorry i couldn't upload the pic.

super stoked to finish 2nd overall at my first enduro event. had a great fun time riding in rather testing conditions. we had rain, hail, snow, wind and sunshine, and not to forget some stunning rainbows :) and lots and lots of mud!!! it was probably the craziest weather we have had for quite some time!
a bunch of us rode from stage to stage which made the day a heap of fun just like a good day out riding with a bunch of mates. we saw a few riders shivering in the queues so it seemed like we made the right choice to stay warm by riding up.

Thanks for a great event series Tim and Belinda Farmer (N-Duro Events)! great to see so many riders doing the events, enjoying our great trails and sunny weather (apart from the 2nd one which was a bit wet). I am stoked to Win the series after a last hard race on sunday where I finished 2nd to Katie. the legs and body in general were a little confused after 2 weeks off the bike! tough course, well done everyone!

Race #2 of Galaxy Travel N-Duro Winter series done and dusted. after listening to the rain hammering on the roof all night i was prepared for a 'Mudfest', or so i thought. to be honest i wasn't expecting it to be quite that muddy! it was fun sliding through the trails and made for a rather different riding experience. happy to take my second win in the girls race. thanks everyone for a great fun race! thanks for the photo Graeme Murray.

after over a year since my last race i finally decided it was time to get back into a bit of racing and the Galaxy travel NDuro Winter Series seemed like a good place to start as they are always fun which to me is a big draw card. 2 weeks of moderate training and it was race day. it was awesome to see so many people show up to participate and so many familiar faces, most of them rather surprised to see me on the start line. i got straight back into the groove and was really enjoying the trails, ended up winning the womens overall, very stocked. looking forward to seeing you all next months for some more hurt up the hills and fun through the trails.

wow what a day!
it did take 3 weeks to organise this, since we are all too soft to go out in the pouring rain, but we finally did it and i would say it was a success on all fronts. so the mission was to fix a river crossing on the western okataina track and as a reward ride there and back with a slight detour to the trig.
the riding was fantastic, the scenery stunning and the crew were doing a fantastic job, well done everyone!
thanks for taking the pics Nick Lambert (zeroseven)
