on that legendary fire please Martin & Juliane. It's always a highlight of the 12 Hour

Scottboy's picture

there were 2 fires going out the back of the track also a awesome sight too see even if it was a marshall & sweep lap ... I only recognised a few nobmobbers that are regularly at races as well , hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did .

@smiley - we were all snuggled around the fire as the temp dropped about 20 deg after dark when the Marshall's took off to sweep the course. One of them was a young bloke in a t-shirt & shorts. We took bets on what time the ambulance would be called but he made it to the end!

Great event. Lot's of Nobmobbers enjoying fantastic weather.

@gazza is on a different planet - got 3rd fastest lap of the event plus well up there with many of his others. I was close on his tail with about the 600th fastest lap...

Me & my mate decided to take off a little bit earlier to share the sweep make it quicker , there were 3 of us constantly going around all day with a girl out there too , we spent time getting the track safer with the pallet & the door on the track too make it flow better & safer & fun .

Fatboy's picture

Great work @smiley. Fell off at slow speed in sticky mud one lap then next time round there was a crew laying a pallet down then and no more problems. Same a few laps later at a different spot. You guys rocked!

Just wanted to pass on my thanks and congratulations to WSMTB and jetblack who were involved in running a truly magical event. That was my first 12 hr experience and it certainly won't be the last. Great atmosphere, great trails, great music, great riders and a cracking group of team mates to boot. We'll be back!

Ray R's picture

Many thanks to Russ and crew who made those great running repairs on the day! That pallet covered a nasty littlle hole.

This event always has a great feel due to the team effort.

(don't forget our next club XC on 22 Sept at Yellomundee).
