I'd be happy to contest back-of-the-pack-honours with you Tinks. I am determined to go and support the good works of the Hanmer Trail Pixies but methinks there will be a suitcase full of hurt ..... much of it mine :hmmm:
And besides I haven't ridden Threashold before, so there's new territory to be discovered :thumbsup:

Nick, I am planning to ride the eastern third or so (Threshold loop) on Friday arvo as I haven't done most of that before and am keen to have a look-see before race day. But not keen to ride any more than that or I will be even further still behind you on Saturday :crazy:

Heads up. Rode most of this on Saturday after the muster got ditched. Decided to walk most of the top section of Red Rocks due to the foot deep mud in places. All sorts of carnage if you hit some of that wrong. We didn't head up to Detox as we assumed it would probably be the same. Bit of a course recy 1st might be an idea. :)
