This was my first attempt at this race and hate to say it will be my last only because they are not running it next year. What a shame it is, I did the 50km course and it was fantastic. It was also the first time I had been through stromlo and that place is a mountain bikers paradise. All that single trail and the bermed corners through luge and other trails I can't remember the name of. In fact the only thing harder than building that park would be naming all the trails.

I had a pretty good run through the course with only one stupid fall about 2kms from the finish, purely based on me thinking about finishing rather than what I was doing. Also saw one of the strangest things toward the end of the race, a bike saddle on the trail which could've been a rather uncomfortable finish for one rider!!!

Overall is was really happy with my time of 2:30 and I will be back at stromlo again to have some more fun Smiling

Thanks guys was hoping for 2:30 but given the lack of training in the last few weeks was thinking I would be closer to 3 hours so was very happy. I also got the ok for a boys weekend at stromlo, who is keen Eye-wink
