The day I beat Jason English. Sort of.

My goal this year was to finish in the top 10% in a 50km XCM race, and having placed 33rd (out of 232) in my category at last weekend's Capital Punishment, I was determined to do better at Convict 100. I didn't really know what to expect, but most of my training is done in Lane Cove National Park, so I like steep hills and rocky fire trails. So I lined up at the back of the first wave, shivering cold and waiting for the start. The guy next to me said "make sure you ride in a bunch - you don't want to be alone in a headwind on the final dirt road section".

This race has been in my calendar for ages. I had looked forward to it for months.
We had a big group of friends together and all agreed to go over and have some hard racing and good times.
Myself and Jenny, Gav and Vanina, Garry Millburn and Fiona (who was to be head bottle bitch), Andy Davidson and Naomi Hansen, as well as Kyle Ward, and our other good mate Jodie Willet.

Everything was set for a great trip.
I should have seen the signs inn advance though. First, Garry crashes badly on his Euro road trip, and rules himself out.
