CX Shenanigans:
The first few trails were ridden with under lights, wobbly, bar mounted lights, that didn't give confidence in their rock spotting abilities, a problem given the 32/32c tyres humming along beneath me. Though today was notable for the complete lack of flats... but a couple of notable offs.

The first off was mine, I turned off my light for the whoops trail from studley park boat house and tried to outrun Skinny's light. I got an early lead through the fast start, but as the trail tightened I was missing the extra illumination. Two thirds of the way in where the trail goes right... no wait... left... no right... nooo..... shit! I washed out by front wheel on the soft trail edge and got a free trip down the bank towards the Yarra.

The second... well, the video tells the story better than I do.
