The Mud Bath

Well, the awesome foursome had a very dirty weekend away.... maybe I should rephrase that.... A very very very muddy weekend at the 4hr Woodenbong MTB enduro.

The course was pretty cool, mostly firetrack with one horrid hill climb of about 750m, a whole bunch of muddy swamp sections and heaps and heaps of cow pats.

Sneaky Pete was on FIRE, completing 12 laps and just missing out on a top 3 placing in the mens solo division. The Hef was still getting over the wog and wasn't much good for anything except for playing team mechanic and support crew. Kaz and I were having our own little dual in the women's solo division, with Kaz making a downhill pass - on me!! - on the second last downhill section to take out 3rd spot.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable race, except for the heat and the flys that were hitching a ride up the hill on every lap. Definately one that we'll be back to next year.
