Great weekend thanks Marcus and Rotorua OC; also Chris Morris controller from Taupo. The tracks were in pristine condition. FTR Cabin was beaten by Andrew Bott in the long, but Tom Reynolds took both the shorter distances. Marquita Gelderman won all three, with Australian-resident kiwi Kath Copland second each time.

Cheers everyone was great (apart from blatant cheating from Jamie). Is there any chance of getting the photos/video up somewhere? Mick, Ian?

Jamie 2 Greg 1

What are you counting Rob? I never cheated or went the wrong way up a directional track, and I'm sure the number of times Jamie did it are higher, well at least the number of times he was caught on camera and admitted to. Or are you counting the number of times we didn't pay attention to the start instructions, thats at least 2 for Jamie in the middle, but should be 0 for me.....

You took the bait Greg.

You both rode well.

Just wish Tom had ridden yesterday, because he would have needed an excellent race to beat Andrew Bott from Hawkes Bay.

Yeah Tom and Andrew were a step above the rest of us. I was also impressed that Cabin could make two big mistakes and still come second. It's good to be beaten by so much to see just how much faster you can go if you really work at it.

yeah its amazing how fast real mountain bikers can go. Whatever Greg.

How'd that taped route and last control work out for you?

Show Profile  marcusd Posted: 16 November 2009, 8:47 AM  
You two really love each other don't you?
