Forrest Festival 2011

 

Ben, James and Marcus all headed down to the beautiful town of Forrest to compete in the first Forrest Festival 2 day stage race.  The format was 4 stages, 15km XC, 5km Uphill TT, 5km Super D and a 50km Marathon on  Day 2.

Marcus had a tough weekend with mechanical issues but still fought hard to finish mid field with jammed gears and one brake by the end of stage 4 ! Ben and James fared better finishing 7th and 3rd in the overall GC.  Despite 30mm of rain the trails held up well with fast and technical racing on both days. A highly recommended event for next year.

Marcus at the end of Stages 1,2 and 3 on the first day.  Good clean fun !
