EDIT: Video has been uploaded here
Well what a day it was today! Sun was out, hovering around 30C, clear blue skies, over 1000+ spectator turnout! We were back at Lysterfield a week later watching the Australian National XC Championships (MTBA) series .
This was the first race we (sS-bEn and I), had witnessed on the 6km compeition course and its amazing how far this course does extend!
We came during the womens race, here are some photo's from just one location on the trail: (all resized)
Between these races we clocked up some km's ourselves on the surrounding trails, also explored a lovely new one aswell that I will definatley ride again!
The Men's race, same course as the womens except 7 laps of the 6.2km (?) course began at 2pm. Apparently it was about 18min - 20min a lap and we ran out of time to see the finish but we took a lot of videos and a few pics! (the videos will be uploaded and posted here in a few days )
We took most of the mens race shots from this one location...here they are!
Giant man next lap...
Sussing it out...
Tight and fast around the boardwalk...
Finally the winner and leader of most of the race!..
It was a really great day, we will definatley come back in a quite time and ride the extra section of the 'compeition course' shown above!
Some of the video's taken should be up here in a few days so stay tuned!
