Does that mean video ha ha
Also shows a little incident where the bugger stuffed up right at the bottom of a big log roll after I had already committed lol.
He's back home again now, hand is ok luckily but lost 3 qrts of his thumbnail. And suspected concussion.
If conditions are like today you guy's will have to ride it. Perfect!
I PR'd a couple of sections and might have got in a sneaky Strava KOM lol.
But yeah, its not the place if its going to be pissing down or really wet leading up to it.
I've only been out to the Youies once and loved it, so...
Did final test ride of our Melbourne burners meet. Conditions were almost perfect.
But unfortunately last trail of the day, my riding buddy hit the deck hard. Low speed but over the bars on a steep trail.
Got him back to my car, and is now in Hospital getting his hand checked out and what seems...
Final route set for the 1000m group.
Little bit of a hike out to Lyre Lyre but worth it. Takes in all 6 of the best descents.
Just under 30km, 1113m. Of course we can chop and change on the day as necessary depending on how everyone's feeling.
Or if everyone loves a particular trail we'll do it...
No chain guide on either bikes, generally don't have an issue on mine (Shimano 11)
But Andrew on the Genius has had a shocking run with the Sram SX 12 speed. You can hear all through the video where it was missing gears and then the final chain drop likely related to the poor...
That back side was a little damp in spots, but not too bad. They had already closed off the circuit from around follow me through to the downhill from the BP so we took the Fire road. And Snipe was closed? Not sure I've ever seen that wet, is it closed for some other reason?
A quick lap of Lysterfield Park taking in all the so called black descents.
Quite a few people around, but still largely had no worries with traffic on the downs. Did have to queue up to take our turn down Com Games lol.
Trails were running pretty nice.
