    Came 23rd in the 6 Pack Males, we were really riding as a 5 though as one of the guys hadnt ridden in 3 months due to injury. I had a great time.

    So how was the track, fairly similar style to old Sparrow Hill? I haven't ridden there yet, thinking of heading out there this weekend - it should be nice and worn in now, especially with the rain on Sunday!

    In a word, brutal.
    No real climbs to speak of but there is no rest. The downs are tight and twisty, I would image Kowalski's sideshow (slideshow) would be well and truely washed out after the rain on Sunday. Within about an hour of it starting to rain it was just a slippery slope, a mate described it best as "using your back wheel as a rudder and just hoping for the best.

    Not as much flow as Sparrow but I think a much more interesting loop. Constantly on the go and any lapse in concentration will be paid for. Oh, and from 5km to about 1 1/2km to go is just nasty. If you park at sparrow and ride across, as you are now meant to do, then this will obviously be in the first couple of km of the ride.

    have fun

    Yeah, more climbing than Sparrow but that means more descending!!! Great for a couple of laps, not great for more than 3 (insert pain here).

    Have to agree with Emu, dont know what sort of condition it will be in after the rain, but there is one way to find out, ride it! Defiantly worth the drive.
