MTBO race 2:33:35  28.61 km (11.2 kph) +707m
shoes: Avanti Mountain Bike
Australian Long MTBO Champs. It was billed as long and hilly and it lived up to its advertising.
No major mistakes or bad route choices, just not enough energy to match the interstate competition. The winner was 1:45 around 45 minutes quicker than me. I can't see more than 10 minutes of errors mostly around the faint tracks #5 & #6 where is seemed you had to bush bash to get to the control especially #6 where I could not see a track. I don't think I could have ridden much faster. I had to push the bike up 3 or 4 hills and had to walk it down a couple of rough sections of track, which I guess a more accomplished MTB rider would have ridden.
Managed to beat the local competition but the WA riders filled the bottom 3 spots on day
Enjoyed it, and thanks to Ricky and Jack for all their work mapping, setting & controlling.
Very tired at the end!
