    It is race to make as many standards as possible so everyone has to read the manual.
    Just go SLX and fully rigid, that'll do it

    Haaa haaa ... I just built up a 26" with 26/38 ... Running a front mech was a challenge with the dropper ... But I think I got it setup nice ... 2.25 tires with tubes as well ... So bloody skinny ... I'm calling it 'back to the future'

    YKYGOW => when fracking a pissy knee graze isn't healed after a week and is a little red around the edges ... I never use to bandage these things ... But now I've got to keep it covered and clean the bloody thing FFS. Thinking I need to upgrade my medikit in the car with some antiseptic and bigger bandages so I can sort it at the car then and there... Meh

    A friend had the audacity to schedule their wedding on the same day, but apparently *I* was the bad guy for hoping it'd be called off.

    Next year, looks like a bunch of giggles!

    That's what it's all about. There's some hard core dudes n dudetts up the pointy end, but for me it was all about having a blast. Would have been good with some mates, if you know of any send em my way, mine were a pack of pikers. The best bit was the range of terrain, the snow was a novelty, and a fun difference from the norm, bit of urban through the village, with plenty of stairs. Onto the single track, which was fuggnawesomeness, then fast, steep, loose, rocky 4wd track with even looser 90+ corners to burn your brakes out, paved downhills which tested your confidence in your tyres stickiness. Finish up with a river crossing (which I was too chicken to take, looked fast n COLD) and a quick blast through a dam (the structure not the big puddle). A free beer from Bright Brewers, a feed from the Food Store and a shuttle back up from Bogong Village by Blue Dirt capped off a brilliant day. I'll definitely be back, and after missing the first 2, I'm wrapped I moved heaven and earth to get there this year, despite the universe trying to stop me. I think I'll take the boy too, can't rely on the other old farts to follow through it seems. Hell, a lot of the competitors even skied the arvo out.

    As for the mature part, fuck off! I finished 3rd last, but top 10 in the masters U50 and don't want anymore competition.

    I have some gopro footage I'll post up when I get off my arse and download it.

    The only downer for the day were the 2 climbs. If I sign up to ride down a mountain, I don't want to even think about climbing

    i can do unoffiicial.

    sounds like an awesome day. Mates were keen for the 23rd but i couldn't do it this year. then no-one could make the 7th work. I think negotiations for next year will start early. Maybe Christmas Day when i get my calendar. i'll just mark all weekends in September and October as McKayos.

    Thanks for the write up. even more jealous now. weather looked epic.
