PREVIOUS YEARS

  • 25-09-2011 Two week Noosa Holiday – I need to train for this more than any road race.  I SURVIVED!
  • 16-10-2011 Lygon Street Herald Sun Tour lead-up crit – Masters A/B grade – see result here.
  • 29-10-2011 Melbourne to Warnambool (road scratch open) – My goal for this race is to not get dropped from the main bunch, experiment with my best efforts to get in a break and test my ability.  Not necessarily to finish.  See results here.
  • 25-11-2011 Took part in a 6 man team for the Garmin 24hr MTB race.  Conditions were absolutely terrible resulting in a pretty disappointing weekend all-round.  Read about it here.
  • 3-1-2012 Just a little dirt crit in Bright – a little one but still a win!
  • 5-2-2012 Gravity 12 hour – in Bright – triple team with Brendan and Doogs from Cyclepath – covered here.

2012

  • 29-01-2012 Alpine Classic – disappointed not to have cracked the 7hr barrier again but happy with a solid performance which smashed Brenton (most important!).  Here’s my history.
  • 19-2-2012 Otway Oddysey – 100km marathon MTB race – done and dusted.
  • 1-4-2012 Duael 6 hour (pairs team with Matt) – what a bloody ripper race.  20 minute laps and only one allowed at a time – non-stop action.  Matt and I third in male pairs… pretty happy.
  • October 2012 Surfcoast 12 hr (pairs team with Al) – top race on top trails – third in male teams… extremely happy with this result considering it was Al’s first MTB race – not bad!
  • 4-11-2012 Chase the Sun 7hr – raced Solo.  Third in over 40 category and fourth overall.  Not bad for a fat bloke in a race with 2700m climbing in 113k – how ridiculous!
  • 25-11-2012 Chase the Sun 8hr – crashed and smashed my face – lucky to survive!

2013

  • February 2013 Bright 12hr – 2nd in Open Team Pairs with Brendon (9th overall) – Team Cyclepath – blog and results here.
  • March 2013 – The Mont 24hr in Canberra – Winners of the mixed fours category with Wazza, BJ and Deb – and 20th overall out of 539 teams!  Grouse – results here for the Stoneage Romeos (search that).
  • April 2013 – Winner of the Emergency Services Games Road Race – 60km RR in Newham.
  • April 2013 – First race in a team with Jack in the Emergency Services Games Mountain Bike 3hr Enduro – came 4th in the open male pairs! – How good’s that?! – Top effort to my little 13 year old beating all those cops, ambos, fire-fighters… missed out on the podium by 3 minutes.  Detailed Results
      • Fourth fastest in lap times overall for me… geez those blokes make it hard!  Fastest Male Laps
  • April 2013 – Wombat 100k  (results here) was probably my best result ever where I was just as happy with my overall time as I was with the 2nd in 40+ and 6th overall.  Very satisfying result this one!
  • May 2013 – saw me scammering around the 20min course at Forrest in the 6 hour with Matt as my partner.  Extremely happy with our performance here with a 5th overall and a 5th in category (open male pairs coz Matt is so young!) – here are the results.
  • A couple of Dirt Rider MTB club races with the kids… DNF the first (mechanical) 3rd in the second (B Grade)
  • Blores Hill 6 hour4th in 40+ and 11th overall
  • Tour of Bright in early December…Hmmm… I am NEVER doing this race again.
