Ok, this is probably a dumb idea but is anyone down under interested in putting together a team of 4 or 6 for the Mont next year (23-24 March in Canberra)? I know a few of you have done it before on uni’s (TomTom, Mark?, Rob?, Matt?) but I am not sure if that was as a uni team or just on your own? I am not even sure if they would let us enter a uni only team. Anyhow entries open next week (7th Nov) and sell out fast so let me know if your interested and Ill follow up with the organisers.
(Just for the record I am not super fast like Napalm and others but Ill get around OK on my 29er. Maybe if we have enough interest we could have a fast team and more relaxed team as well?)
Ok, so I’m but of a Mont veterine on a b$ke. I think I’ve done it 7 times now. Last year was the first time I’ve tried a lap with a uni. Did half a lap before retiring because my heart rate got over 200bpm… Anyhoo, that was on a 24", I’ve now gotten a 29er and am keen for another try. I was on a team with b$kers as well. Has anyone contacted self propelled to see if they’re ok with a uni team? I think I’d prefer a team of 6
Looks like some folk tried to have a shot at it in 2005 and got knocked back by the race organisers. There are a few other high profile races (such as the jet blak which Rob and co are doing) allowing unis now, maybe they might have a different approach now?
