2014 Mont 24hr - Rider wanted for 4x team

By M@ - Posted on 06 October 2014

Hi there, hope you don't mind a Mexican dropping by. Hawkeye suggested I drop a post here (and can hopefully vouch for me, though we also haven't met IRL - so really I could be anyone ShockedEye-wink ).

We're seeking a rider to replace someone who's had to pull out; the team is from another forum and haven't ridden together, but basically aiming to give it a shake without being in serious contention if that makes sense... so no pressure to lap the field. We're looking to recoup the entry fee for the guy who's pulled out, but I'll have to dig through old emails to find out how much that was...

Currently registered in male/open category - but I can always check if we can change to mixed if need be.

Hit me up with a PM if you're interested, or ask away with any questions Smiling

what forum is your team from?

Smiling

I was invited but can't make it due to a clash with a prior commitment.

They're from bicycles.net.au, where you'll have seen me post a few product reviews in the past, including tyres, Ground Effect gear, a couple of 29ers, trail lights, Kali Amara helmet, etc.

All the folks I've met from the BNA forum have been really nice people. Although Matt being Mexican might be an exception - I seriously don't get that came they call "football" Eye-wink

Stan, let me know if you are interested and stuck for lights, I might be able to help out.

Ive got all the gear. Thanks hawkeye.

Very interested. But the spot might already be gone according to his facebook page.

Would be awesome to get a ride.

Hey Stan, yep will be riding through the night for sure... I'll check with Nat whether he's in and update here - also worth checking the Self Propelled dating service page - "Just for Fun" sound like they might be sightly more serious than the name implies Eye-wink

@hawkeye I'm secretly with you on that odd 'sport'... but then I'm originally from a little further south than Melburn Eye-wink

Thanks Matt. Smiling

I got in touch with "Just for fun" a few weeks ago but the spot had just been given away. However I think i read Volker just did his coller bone....

So if anyone is short of a rider. 4 or 6 teams I'm keen as mustard. reasonably fit for an old man. Although Elites need not apply. LOL

M@'s picture

Alrighty - so the spot is still up for grabs as Nat is running an enduro in Tasmania on the same day haha!

StanTheMan's picture

Happy to be considered. Ive PMed you my phone. I'm happy to call you

M@'s picture

Awesome - will give you a call! Smiling

hawkeye's picture

Yes Volker did his collarbone. So there's a spot there too if anyone is interested.

M@'s picture

So I can't seem to send or recieve PMs successfully... probably a n00b thing. Drop me an email at broughm (at) gmail dot com if you're still keen Cool

StanTheMan's picture

Did you guys hook up?

Stan, we've got an opening in a team of six in masters if needed. I've checked your time around the Dam and you're a good deal quicker than me, which is the main requirement. Eye-wink

StanTheMan's picture

Hey Pankake. we did hook up.

But if you are thinking of doing a NobMob team for next year....would be keen. 6 team masters....smashing laps....ohhhh yea.

pancakes's picture

We've got a regular team but this year has been a little disjointed with the rescheduled race.

You'd easily fill a team if you put up a post. Eye-wink

For hookups, maybe you guys could try Grindr?

Eye-wink

StanTheMan's picture

sooo cheeky

M@'s picture

Hahaha... yep, we've hooked up. I hear cruising the Yarra Flats bike path here in Melburn is another solid option.
