50km in 3hrs 25min 04 sec from start to finish gate. Ride time was actually quite a bit shorter (there was a log jam of riders at the first section of single track and I lost 10 min there). According to my cycle computer full ride time (which should be pretty accurate because I didn't stop otherwise) was 3hrs 15min 38 sec.

That put me at 412th out of 627 riders who completed the course. There was also about 70 riders who DNF'd because they did not complete the whole course.

I took about 10 min off my time from last year (same course) which was good. I felt much stronger in the climbs and had a better time out on the course because I was slightly familiar with it (no soul destroying false tops giving me hope of respite from the sustained climbs in the last lap!)

All in all, good training for the 100km race I have this weekend.

What were your results?
Napalm kicked arse.
I was about 5 minutes behind him coming into the logjam of single track so I lost about 25 minutes.
Actual riding time for me was 3:50 odd, about 40 minutes behind Napalm
I went to hard in the single track trying to make up some time and burned too much energy. Full kudos to Mark, he's an animal.
I also raced the 26 guni with the cranks on 125 which had me standing up too much so I think I need to go to either 137 or 150 next time.
I'm not complaining though cause I had a blast and I came second in my category and I'm learning more every time I race.



Only 2 of us in it but I won a new helmet for my efforts

And I've also got another 50 km MTB race this weekend. Just hope my legs recover in time.

Beautiful pics as always.

I love your diving pic but you lose points for not having your feet together.
