Byfield Race- 24th July

Once again, Johnny and the boys put on a great race on the weekend. As part of the dirtclowns XC race series, this was a 25km or 50km race through the Byfield State Forest.

The track was great, mainly using fire roads as the race circuit, a few single tracks and some technical sections that would catch you out if you weren't on your game.

It was a le monde start, splitting the field greatly at the first corner.

Matty was in the main bunch of riders that got away, that lasted until just after the first set of hills.

A quarter into the race, I could see matt just about 1km infront of me. I was gaining on him quick until he took a wrong turn on the course. I took the opportunity to hammer it. My tactics were smart but the act was low. Full bragging rights, I put 30min into matty over the 50km.

Well done to Lochie, who had his first MTB race on the weekend. Never seen someone so keen to go training, straight after a race.

There will be another event in the coming months, so keep posted.
