Wow, what an amazing track. I nearly didn't go as I was so busy on Saturday with plenty still to do. In the end I drove up to my parents Saturday night, watched Cadel win the yellow jersey and managed a few hours sleep.

Back to today's race. I got there with plenty of time to set up, register and get a practice lap in and check out all the roll overs and jumps. Well done on these as you can hit them at speed or roll over without issues. I was amazed at how well I was hitting these on the HT and timing the landing to perfection (at least before fatigue set in Eye-wink )

Once the race started and we were off it didn't take long to sort out the flow and hold a decent pace. Its such a fun track that requires your full attention I found it tricky to find sections where you could have something to eat. Looking at the profile you would think it would be slow with no flow but it's quite the opposite. Its also nice not to have massive hills for once.

I would have to say this would be one of my favourite tracks for sure and can't wait for the next one.
