I loved the rambling sections of this ride, It has so many transitions from single track to wide fire trail. Not too much uphill either, and I especially enjoyed riding through the burnt out trees.
My first lap time was blown out as a rider in front of me (Karen) decided to cut a tree down with her leg. After getting her back on her feet and on her bike I followed as she looked unsteady and still a bit shaken. She was determined to ride on but halfway into the next lap her hip was too painfull to continue.
At 50 I have found myself spending alot of time riding the tracks on my mtb with friends. I love attending events and so entering this race is just another step forward.
My fitness level is still quite low as I have only been riding for 4 months.
I was pleased to have finished and although I was not fast I managed to increase my skills and confidence.
Everyone was very supportive and considerate, riders, spectators and officials....I am hooked!
Ps: my first event was the 75km Kep track ride with PIHC and I finshed that too!
