The Musselman

What is the Musselman?
During every October for the past 11 years the Musselman Multisport event between Picton & Nelson has started from the Picton foreshore.This year the 12th Musselman will start at 9.00am on the 4th October 2009.

The Musselman is a low key event with one rule – to have fun and enjoy your day. The race stops at ½ way for lunch which is a chance for competitors to catch up and enjoy each others company and for winning you get bragging rights for a year.

This is an awesome race. The kayak, road bike and run are fine... the MTB is tough and really scary on the downhill. Last year my hands froze on the MTB because its quite a climb to the top

These guys here could help you with getting better at the downhill part of that race. Just ask anyone that has done one of the Phundamentals courses...
