My attempts at moving pictures and related stuff.
I’ll be straight with ya – I’ve never really understood what motivates people to race around and around in circles on bikes, in any event, but especially in those longer 12-24 hour endurance events.
After spending the weekend at the 6/18 Hours of Melrose I finally might have some answers but I’m kinda thinking they may well be specific to Melrose.

The solution was to place black tape over the ‘R”s on the top tube and rear triangle. Not super stealth by any means but thankfully it did the job 🙂Read More
Last August I was fortunate to spend a couple of weeks in Melrose South Australia. If you’ve been a good mountain biker I reckon you go to Melrose when you die, to spend eternity riding the flowing trails on the side of Mt Remarkable.
