OK, it was raining cats and dogs this morning, so I aborted the attempt and sneaked off work early instead (Alex made me do it!) and had a go in the clearing weather.
Crikey it's long!
Posted a 1:02:16 according to Strava, made a segment here http://www.strava.com/segments/8647390

Hand timed splits were as follows:
Code: Select all
Split  Elapsed
38:47  38:47    First skidder
16:06  54:53    Classic carpark
07:26  62:20    Trig

... which puts my time about 7 mins slower than my pace at the last series two years ago (week 3 course was then similar but finished at the Classic carpark). 2012 Series

Motivation wasn't that high today, should knock a few mins off in a group TT situation but not 7!

Had fun bombing down a wet Classic but beware the track is completely blocked by a fallen tree about 1/5th of way into descent.

Merry Xmas all

Started Xmas day with an early morning Codgers ride straight after work and before the heat kicked in. P51 is indeed over growin but the wet grass cooled my legs down, although the gorse acupuncture wasnt that nice.

Now I have the complete set of climb times with a 19.20 for P51 I look forward to seeing if I can knock some seconds of my times in round 2.

See you all on Monday and I hope Santa was kind and you got some go fast bike bits.

Thats good commitment Muzz, I have updated the leader-board accordingly.

See you all tomorrow night to make use of the extensive carb loading I have been doing..

All Times

Hello all

I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year. I will keep adding all the times to the table below as we go through the second cycle of hill climbs (so hopefully you will see an improvement rather than the regression I am experiencing!). i will keep the leader board on page 1 as the fastest time for each climb but post all times on this new table.

Also, after riding P51 last Monday, Murray and I made an executive decision to ditch it because I am still removing gorse thorns from my fingers. Instead, when it comes around to that climb again we will do the first part of the climb the same but turn right at the top of jacks and follow the forestry road to finish at the picnic table on the fireball skid site (at the top of the IV line). This should take about the same amount of time as the P51 climb.

Yeah, P51 is giving a little gorse loving at the moment.

So lads what is the plan now that Codgers is closed?

Up Tangragee Road, then onto Pipeline and Jacks\Firball?

Cant make Monday night as I will be at work, I might sneak out before hand and do some catch up but we need to decide how and where we are going to go.

Yes Muzz, last monday we shot up the Tantragee road to the gate at top of the Gully and then jumped on to the pipeline there. We will do the same this coming Moday (but go up the firball climbing track to the trig as usual).

It will be interesting to see how much difference in time it makes!

Meet at the RDA paddock at 6pm as usual but now you need to access it from the community gardens end :)
