Recuper8 is probably the best hydration pack fluid you will ever use. Its like crack for dirt bike riders.

So make that $7500 for Mates4Mates. No injuries, 125+ riders. Awesome ride on prime slippery tracks.

It was like a motocross track the whole weekend. Loamy wide tracks great for getting 2 and 3 wide on and bashing bars. Only snow on the peaks around us, none on the tracks. I ran out of fuel 3k's from home on Day 1 - caused by some backtracking to find stragglers early.

The usual shenanigans were on with some drunken possums hiding my bike:




I cant wait for the ground to dry out for the Summer Ride so we can add the hardcore tracks.

Massive thanks to all concerned. Lunches were tip top, roast rolls and gravy and hot soup. I'll start track clearing in December to do it all again.

This is when we were waiting at the front for stragglers. We had to backtrack a long long way to find a kid with a broken chain in dunlop volleys. We sent him on his way.



We visited Clark Dam - the lads were in to the cans early:



Steak at the pub. They ran out of schnitzels I heard. Didnt know how many of us were coming they said, despite me emailing it, telling them on the phone and visiting in person a couple of times.




Roost.

That's all I took. I lead 90% of the time so I had my hands full. Those little buggers sure can ride.
