    Default Baberton XCM MTB-not as delicate as a daisy

    This weekend the most challenging MTB race. Again. As If I don't learn after every race.

    So who will join . My orange Kombi will be there.

    Good luck.

    Rain started coming down at about sunset today (Friday) here in Barberton. Now just before midnight and no sign of letting up. One has to assume it is going to be wet and muddy tomorrow, but at least not the searing heat of some years.

    Fit some MT tyres to the bikes...
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    Perfect conditions at the moment. There is a warning for very slippery conditions on the mountain. Also a warning to ignore rhinos and hippos. "DO NOT STOP to take selfies"

    The 2019 Barberton race is suddenly history.
    The weather was perfect and now Frik's SWB 3.8V6 brute and my sleek Chevy strike lonely figures as we pack up.

    so done and dusted. 77km. Still the best MTB dayrace in the country with the most amazing scenery!

    Like roelf said the weather were very bad on Sunday. Saturday the best weather you can have , cool and cloudy.

    I saw Albert Gravett there as well.

    I was there! I saw an orange swb transporter at registration on Friday night about 18:30.
    Track was wet in places and the cooler weather made that last bastardo of a climb more bearable than last year. Who puts a waterpoint right at the top of a climb?
    Due to being fatter and unfitter than last year, I was 20min slower but still managed a top 50 finish in the 77km.
    Good fun!

    Jip was my van. Did around 5 hrs, but im 118kg and only 1 kidney so I took it easy. I should do 4 to 4.5 hrs next year. Fit and strong enough, just too heavy.
