Jason and I managed to make it out for 'burbs tonight, and I can tell you from my end it was Epic in its own right. Quite a ride to come back onto the bike with, and it tore me a new one, but getting back on the pony is always tough and takes a few weeks to get over the hump. Nothing more to do than get after it!

Whilst I grovelled home, I had to laugh at some clown. Either he could tell I was a ruined unit, or he was just a comedian, but riding a large supermotard bike like this

rode up beside me on a large main road, and proceeded to pass me on one wheel, with his legs off the bike pedaling... What a smartarse, and I know that he would have been laughing in his helmet as much as I was laughing under mine.

I just thought I'd share that lil gem, as it made me laugh when I thought I was all out of giggles!

Its all starting to happen. With a manic winter with plenty going on, things are slowly starting to organize themselves at Felt Epix. The Epix are starting to form thick and fast, and hence we are both scrambling to get back out on the bikes after a winter layup (but not rest!). The Degani Kinglake ride comes around in a few short weeks, taking in some of the great terrain out that way.

Following that, the BigMak Epix will be taking flight around a similar area but utilising a little known series of trails to connect two well known places. Obviously I'm not giving too much away here, but you know that we'll let more slip the closer we get!

The Big George Invitaional is also slated for later in the year, taking in 4 racetracks in one day, linking them all together into one huge loop, so that's looking Epic as well.

And all is this is before we attempt Ballarat to Bendigo, and also venture into the High Country for plenty of lunacy in the Alpine National Park

So whilst it might be quiet here at the moment, stick around! Pretty colours and tall tales shall abound shortly!

In the meantime, we leave you with this amazing video - slighly bizarre, certainly borrowed from Fyx and amazing none the less! I'm heading back to the fridge for more Recovery to help my poor busted body come good!

When one needs to recover

School night torture.

You know your getting serious when you have got your bike strapped to the trainer on a school night. But with the Degani ride coming up I need all the help I can get.

The BIG news that has sparked off all this structured training, is news that Nat Dunn has found him self a sponsor. Look out for the skinny boy in a fresh team Ascend kit! The lad is packing some horse power under the bonnet. You may have seen Nat in some of our Epix rides in the past. He has earned the respect from some of the best MTB riders in the country as a hard arse that always leaves one gear to spare, as Nat says, “you never know whats around the next corner”.

As for the next Epix ride? The site has been chosen and the route has a few tweaks needed before we hit the trails. The finish will be welcomed by all and with the promise that all will be well hydrated.

In search.

The blog posts may have slowed of late, but in the real world life is moving at sub-sonic speed. The MTB rides have taken a slight curve and have been ridden on the black top for some ‘time in the saddle’. Hard arse Nat is back in flying form and Mr T is gearing up for some up and coming adventure races which has inspired me to head out with the boys early Saturday mornings. As we are all fathers we need to head out early to get the k’s in before the little people are calling. 6am we head out in search of some fitness and solitude to put the working week behind us and to set us up for a weekend with the family and domestic duties.

With the weather heating up the Epix rides are being planned. This summer we will be heading out once again in search of the perfect single track. You never know we may be heading out in your local stomping ground.
