The Mont 24 Hour

I’ve done this 3 years in a row and a great event it is. This year I didn’t prepare for it and it showed when I was riding on anything that didn’t go downhill. I wasn’t psyched about it and the last time I rode my mountain bike was some time in January. Far out. What a trail! Thanks to the rain it wasn’t as dusty as last year and wow so smooth. There were one or 2 muddy spots in the middle but that was nothing to complain about. The downhill twists and turns were awesome. I only took a few photos this year as I arrived just 2 hours before the race started and slept in the car. It was freezing at night. Toilets weren’t too bad as well and wet wipes are the best.

The Mont 24 Hour 2012Big thanks to Tai and the TBSM crew for hosting us. The heater at night was much needed as the temperature dropped down to around 4 degrees Celsius.

The Mont 24 Hour 2012I did a night lap. Altogether I managed to squeeze in 4 laps.

It was awesome to do that night lap with you Felix! Although I probably enjoyed it more than you did 🙂
