Superb write-up Steve. Sounds like it was a really good race. Well done for being in the winning team!
From your pictures it doesn’t look as suicidal as I was expecting after seeing Turtle’s usual photo fare. Or did you just not risk stopping for pictures on the really dodgy bits? I love mountains, but I’m not at all good with cliffs!
Very insipiring! Great write-up and pictures, thanks for sharing.
I did not sign up for this year’s event because I did not fancy the racing aspect of it. But it is very clear that the racing is just an “excuse” to go and ride beautiful trails with others and push oneself perhaps more than usual (not a bad thing!). Definitely something I would like to do next year!
It sounds like a 26er was the optimal size, but if you only had a 24" and a 29", which one would you go for? (I hope you will say 24" as it fits nicely in my suitcase…)
Thanks for the detailed write up and pics steve. There will be an Australian team at the next Grischa muni challenge in 2012- i believe a road trip after unicon is in order!
Good work turtle and everyone else for making fun and interesting muni events- i can’t wait to partake in one.
I am so jealous, it sounds awsome Steve. Thanks for the write-up and photo links it might just be the impetus I need to get out and Muni (not withstanding the injuries and time constaints I currently have )
