Taupo Day/night Thriller 2010

Postby dented on Tue 7/Sep/10 8:22pm

I stupidly agreed to join a team for this some months ago, and now find myself 4 days away, horrifically unfit, and my only mobile mtb is completely innapropriate.

Should be fun :)

Anyone else getting involved this year?

The Taupo 'Pak N Save Pump Track' of course. Hasn't been much in the way of promotion...yet.
Coming in County Ave (tarseal road) it's next to the 1st carpark on the right. Sorry Not a lot in the way of pictures but here is a video of designer Carwyn May doing a lap. http://www.biketaupo.org.nz/content/view/521/135/

Yer well - I figured that if I am gonna do 24 Solo next Moonride I better give a 12hr a bit of a fang.

Spent Sunday flat on me back pumpin pain killers and voltaren. Managed to splash around tonight chasing slidecontrol at the Ham night race and can still walk so I guess I better front up.

Also you may already know but the course will be quite different to previous years. Shorter I think :sly: but the lack of trees and general wide view in the main block could get interesting come nightfall :satan: :satan: .

Basically the main block got logged in February and they aren't replanting till next year. So this is only a temporary course for this year's race and a full course should be rebuilt next year.

Shorter than last year? It was only just 30 minutes anyway (if you dawdled) and that was longer than normal.
See you there dents. I'll be circulating round for the full 12. Beth will be supporting. We'll be over in the solo area under the white ezy-up.
