MT Bike xc race 2:05:00 
Shepherds Hill xc "race."
For some reason I thought after yesterday's fine weather that the tracks would be ok today ....mistake!
So it wasn't really a race for me just a survival plod in the slippery conditions.
Rock drops, mud and running water are not a gd combo.
Did half a lap warm-up which did get me warm.
The lap had 2 big climbs to top and 2 descents.
I had 3 laps but just after the 2nd lap my chain got stuck over my back cluster and when I realigned it I noticed that half a link was hanging off....not gd.
I pushed it to the side and walked both climbs and rode quietly on the descents hoping that the chain would hold together. It did, to my amazement.
Luckily I had put in a spare sheet in the car for the muddy bike to lie on.
Off to Flinders for an outdoor ed camp with 30 girls tomo!! Zero tonight up there..
