I rode 42:18 on my Pompino last year, and will again this year when I can get to one of the races. I was in Wanganui for the first one and will be camping at Battle Hill with scouts for the next one.

The climbs were mostly short and steep up the stopbanks in previous years, so gunning it on the flat and muscling up them is an option, then switch to running or walking up if the fitness gives out in later laps...

On my 29" with MTB tyres and a 32 up front I spent the bulk of my time in 19, 21, 24 and 28, with the odd drop down to 36 when I was attacking the stop bank rather than running up. Also I am very unfit.

On CX tyres with running the hills you might be ok 38:18, but maybe worth going a little easier if you can?

Yesterday was a great course and so cool to see so many people out enjoying it.
The A grade race was pretty impressive, those guys were flying around there.
Looking forward to the next one.

I ventured out for the 1st time yesterday. Good times.

Will go for the hole shot next time to avoid the lap 1 hold ups. I wasted a lot of (my very limited) energy regaining position after being held up by falls.

Away for the nest 3 weeks, so will miss the next round

First time yesterday for me too. Had a fantastic time out there. I left my warmup lap a little late so ended up at the back for the start but had a great time picking my way through the field.
