Talla...where is everyone?

Woke up at 0630 and logged onto DBW to see if there were any last minute changes to the ride today only to find that Eddy is crook and couldn't make the ride. Mate...make sure you amend the 'out with a piss poor excuse' list with your name hope your feeling better soon mate.

I new a few other blokes were heading out to talla anyway (Orangeant, Ethosguy and snickers 22g) so I thought I'd head out to Macas to see who turned up and if no one did I'd get a ride in anyway.

I met Azza88, Woody, SS187 (decided to run a slick on the rear) and Snickers there





and we drove into Talla and met up with Orangeant and Ethosguy.





Once kitted up we decided that Orangeant would lead and I'd sweep. I knew that this could mean that I'd not get any action photos (and Hammer would be pissed) but for the shoulder's sake it had to be done.

So to cut the story short the trails were fun (a far bit tougher than the original 2/3 rating) and flowing. We stopped for a rest a couple of times, went up some fairly tough hills that I expected not to get up first time and we were having a casual days riding until we hit 'that hill'.

First Rest




Second Rest



I guess you need a hill like this on every ride but at the time it was a true bastard. Thankfully I jagged it and was able to get some 'action video' of the numerous attemps at getting up. We must have been on this hill for 45 minutes but everyone wanted to get up unassisted so check out below:

The second attempt






More attempts to come...

The pictures do that hill no justice, if it wasn't for the rocks it would have been alot easier. Thanks to Jimmy for getting the husky up the hill and for taking footage to prove my failed attempts ( I think 5 in total), overall I had a great time and the riders were top guys, its always good to meet new riders. The single track is awsome and I look forward to riding Talla again, might arrange a winch at the top of that hill next time.

Looks like a great day. Good work with the pics and video Jimmy, it made me envious. Looked pretty dusty out there?

Hope the shoulder held up ok and I'll see ya on the track soon.
