Mt Somers

This was the last mtb race of the season for me. It was meant to be on the 21st of April but because of the rain they postponed it a week latter. I was looking forward to racing in the mud and rain but it was still quite wet a week latter. It was quite windy the day of the race too and unfortunately it was a head wind around most of the course. I got straight into it from the start and rode off the front. It was hard heading straight into the wind on your own but I was just in a good rhythm. Four other riders started to work together and pulled me back in after a few kms. I rode with them for a little while then attacked them on a pinch climb. I got a gap and held it to the base of the main climb. From here I pulled away and extended my lead till the finish. A nice way to cap the last race of the season off with a win and see how I was feeling after having a rest after the national series. Thanks to all the organisers for holding the race and donating the proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House.
