A new event on the calendar – and quite a good one at that!

The Snowies MTB Festival was held at Lake Crackenback resort – a little holiday camp style place halfway between Jindabyne and Thredbo.
The resort host the start and finish of each of the 4 stages over two days.

Had a great time at this first time event last weekend.

Entered the 2 person team category for this event, as neither my mate or I felt up to the full 4 stages over two days. We ended up being the oldest team by a fair way I think.

I knew before the race even started how slippery the track could get. I got caught out in the rain while warming up for the first attempt at Wylde for the Round 1 race. But I wanted to race it anyway to see everyone sliding around for my own personal lols Sticking out tongue

I had brought 2 bikes with me as I was still undecided which bike I wanted to do the race on. My old Giant Yukon Hardtail with rim brakes running a 96er set up (29er front wheel, 26 back wheel) and my 2011 Giant Trance with dual suspension and disc brakes.

What a Cold morning, I think my ears froze as soon as I stepped out of the car at Woodford.

My only goal was to break the hour mark, last year my time was 1:00:11 so I knew I could do it.
I started at the very back of the 30-39 (Wave D). As soon as I crossed the starting line I started moving up the pack and continued to do so along the firetrail. I rode every climb at a slow and steady pace to not burn myself out and used that reserve of energy to pick my pace up at the top of each climb.

Well what a day. I set myself 3 goals for this event, 1. Start the race incident free, 2. Finish the race unbroken and bike in good shape and 3. Don't come last.

This was my first official race since starting up MTBing in Mar 2014, and last time I did something like this was on motocross bike a decade or so ago. I tookup MTBing to get some fitness and to clean/clear the lungs of 38yrs of smoking and more than happy with the result. If nothing else this will give me a basis to start with.

Only ~2 minutes better than last year. I guess I really need to work on my DH skills.
Slow and steady improvement Eye-wink

Added the finishing certificate.
It shows a few seconds less then my cylemeter or the official timer counted. Oh well. Maybe the more in the past the faster I get. Must be.
