9 AM

MTBO (Warmup) 13:00 [3] 3.5 km (3:43 / km)
shoes: Specialized Epic Marathon Car

Decided to do a reasonable warmup before today's ride so i put myself in a good position for a podium. Got 9min in before my chain broke. Luckily this happened on the warmup and not during the race!! I cursed at Tricky who was starter for putting the mockers on me.
10 AM

MTBO race (Carinah) 1:42:25 [4] *** 35.05 km (2:55 / km)
slept:8.0 shoes: Specialized Epic Marathon Car

The plan for today was to push at all times reminding myself to have laboured breathing happening which meant i was in zone 4.

Took off to 1 and caught the guy in front of me by the time i got to control 1. Passed a few people onto 2 before nearly being taken out by a black boar, which had shot out of the bush like a bullet. Luckily the second boar turned the opposite way.

3 to 4 i took the option that involved the deleted track from previous years. I thoought it odd this year that the option was open and i suspect it wasnt vetted this time as i missed the junction and then upon riding it, it just vanished. At this stage 2 people were scratchign their heads as i belted past them. Managed to find the track again 5m later and yelled back to them that i had found it. Managed to punch 4 and ride back to the junction just as they popped out.

Took the the MB tail to 5 as i figured it would be a firmer surface to ride. 5 to 6 was problematic with the amoun of trees block the track that werent mapped.

Kept pushing hard all the time with the thought of keeping my work load high. punched 12 and thought it was going to be risky coming into the finish with the start using the same track. Managed to get around a competitor just in sight of the finish line before laying a nice broadie in front of Ken Post and all the specatators!!

Uneventful ride into work until beeliar where i had to take a detour onto a footpath to avoid the dead motorcyclist's bike that was still on beeliar drive. Major crash investigation unit had whole of beeliar drive west closed off so i had 2 lanes to myself to ride to school!!
