2010 Season Wrap

Well, with the last two races of the season postponed until 2011, that is it for the 2010 race calendar.

Not even a Dirt Crit left due to all the rain! Majura and Stromlo are flooded out, so it is road riding (and maybe some Bruce Ridge XC) over xmas.

But on the upside, with all the races rescheduled, January is looking a whole lot more fun!

  • 2nd Jan - 90km SCUM Enduro (Nowra)
  • 6/7th Jan - 360km roadie up around NSW Alps
  • 16th Jan - 100km Alpine Assault (Mt Beauty)
  • 5/6th Feb - Jet Black 24hr (Syndey)

This morning was another Bakery Bunch ride - 700w efforts to stay with the pack off at the traffic lights ... and then the usual sprint through Palmerston. 20 min peak power is going to be up in the high 300s again :)

Assuming the weather holds, I can foresee another few weeks of Bakery Bunch riding.

Hopefully by Jan my "evil twin" Scott Spark 10 will have arrived ... and by Feb I am hoping my Scott Scale 29er Pro will have arrived - aka the Mawson Marathon bike.

A big end of year thank you to Robyn - for all her support at races, in training - and for just generally putting up with my bike obsessions.

Thanks to Bailey and Stella for always eating my left over sandwiches and energy bars ... no matter how long they have been in my back pocket.

A big thanks to the ACT Bike Superstore for their support and for their great service. Brett has done a great job in keeping my bikes in excellent running order - despite how much mud & dirt the bikes have been through this year.

Thanks to Fenner for his words of wisdom, great training plans and regular chats.

Finally, thanks to all the guys I train and ride with - Jase, Garry, Kevin, Ed, Tommo, Brett, Robbie, Dave, Indi, Roger etc There is always something new to learn off one of you guys ... and having a group around that really can push each other is fantastic.

Bring on 2011!!
