You like it so much you had to say it twice ? :mrgreen:

Nice vid, but it didn't embed properly I think due to the "&feature=youtu.be" at the end of the url - I took it out in the quote above & it now works fine for me anyhows

I thought you were off the MTB with a rib injury ?

Nah, it's a nerve compression issue in my foot between third and fourth metatarsal head. One month out from the Mont... perfect timing :evil: Think it was triggered by a dodgy pedal on one of the spin bikes at Virgin Active Frenchs Forest.

It blew up into more of an issue after this ride, actually, on my training ride Tuesday, and my street shoes that I wear at work didn't help Had to can the training ride I'd planned last Thursday morning. :x

Hoping I can survive a spin class Sunday. We'll see how it goes.... don't want to risk it on the bike, possibly getting caught deep in Cascades somewhere and having to make the climb out. Speaking of which I'm due to hit it with an ice pack about now.

Off to get a bike fitting end of next week at The Body Mechanic.

Edit: weird on the double post. Killed now. :P

I think the only part of ourimba I recognized was the first few seconds at the start!... 10 years since I raced there.

It's changed a bit since I last raced there, too.

Magic Carpet has gone. Have to say I don't mind that it has, it scared the crap out of me. First time I rode it because I had no choice, I arrived too fast to bail out! Every time since I'd muff the approach and come in on the wrong line :oops:

I was in the area a couple of weeks ago...my family live nearby. Despite knowing it's existence for well over 15 years...I've only been there the once. Though it was a memorably destructive experience...

Anyway...I had the bike with me and...250mm of rain over the Australia Day long weekend and the following week. Same reason we missed out on the new Hornsby track too :?
Ours is not to reason why...merely to point and giggle
