Every time we get to take our Compulsions out, it seems like a great ride. Saturday was no exception. Whilst the day proceeded to crap out, we all got out early to get 'er done. Out to Lysterfield for a dawn start with Randall, Big Mak, Sam, Joel and Jason and we were having fun from the moment we hit the trails.





Chasing up the climbs really wasn't even a chore, with our bikes just doing what they do. That equilink sitting just behind the seatpost really does mean that these bikes can be ridden anywhere, and if we can take nearly 6" travel trail bikes and keep XC riders in sight on the climbs, we're givin' them all sorts of hell on the way down!




Cam drew the short straw on a hardtail singlespeed today, and did awesome! The boys gave him no quarter around the park and he was up for it all and more. Although we did take a little bit of joy when he was heard asking anything/anyone for a derailleur...







Dawn patrol, although there were some 24 racers I know of that were doing it a whole lot tougher out there, at 4am...



And to wrap the day up, we went and played in the boulders!




Randall making some new lines...

And lucky for these two souls, they beat the worst of the rain! Damn that looks scary and dark though!

Interesting last photo... they turned up at my place looking like they had just popped out of a pool!
