Rocked up with my navigator/DJ, Bear friday arvo and set up camp, had planned a short ride but took in some liquid amber and the serenity while it lasted. Caught up with the Dirtriderz crew that evening and hit the hay early. Satdy morning saw some teasing rain drops but Gough sucked it up like a good sacking. The first climb was a reality call for some so myself and Bushybrows did some escorting back down the hill too the main road and then chased the main group down catching up at the quarry then waited for crew to finish a tight loop. (more on this later) The climb out of this section was entertainment personifide, leaving the bottom just in front of our great sweep Bushybrows we hit the loose, steep, long level 3 climb, (these hills go on forever) within 50 metres I was pushed to the harder line with a downed bike and this continued to the top carrying 3rd gear all the way running out of fingers counting downed bikes. What a blast but cant deny the temptation was there too hold the better line and find more traction using downed bikes. The day pretty much continued like this with a few excellent flowing tighter tracks. Harrydaggers, well we managed to do couple of k's turning a wide track into a narrow one, staying side by side, jumping washouts, squaring off with some nice slides and occasionally getting intimate, thanks mate that was fun. Back to camp we refueled our bikes and bodys headed back out in a smaller group, only a short stint for me as my body was whinging. THANKYOU JAY for all your efforts and leading a spectacular level 3 ride, Bushybrows for sweeping and everyone else for a great weekend. Sunday morning Bear and I went out and hit a hill climb or 2 and then headed too the quarry which I had missed the previous day, I knew it was getting a little bit more serious when Bear took his back pack off so I followed suit (have not ridden without a backpack since the old moto x days) so my body went into a state of excitement/freedom. Bear took off, 4 km tight, very entertaining track with stop watch running, it was on! Completed first lap, short break then hit again improving pace by about 15 seconds for loop. Ok lets do this in reverse, this time I took the lead with Bear leaving a gap, I knew he would be trying to hunt me down so the pace was really up there, did he catch me, nah, but I could hear him over the last few hundred metres. Thanks mate, that was just excellent. Back to the cars, pack up and look forward to our next adventure.
