Kinglake:
Sitting at work watching the rain come in for hour after hour, I was worried that the Mario Christmas Ride would be called off. Thankfully it wasn't as it turned out to be a fair giggle.

We had a pretty big group, including a heap of guys I hadn't seen on a bike, let alone a mountain bike for many many moons.

PC080001

Most trails hooked up well, but there were other sections with a bit more clay in the soil where I questioned my stance on not complaining about tyre choice.

The highlights for me (other than the post ride burgers and beer) was getting up the long climbs in 2nd, just behind Alex Randall. I'm sure not everyone was killing themselves like I was, but I'll take it as a win. Notable mentions were the fact I kept it upright, and a narrow loss to Jason Jackson in the final sprint.

Sadly my cameras abilities in low light are limited, so despite taking 20+ photos, I'm left with only the one to show you. Next time you'll just have to come along and see for yourself. :)
