corc race at kowen

Last Sunday Cam and Roscoe got up nice and early and headed up to Canberra to get back into the racing life. After making a slight detour along the wrong road they finally arrived at kowen race track. much to boys delight they hoped out of the car to a lovely winter day. All kitted up they headed out to take a look at the track.After completing there first run they were pretty happy with the track. nice and quick and not to technical. doing a few more runs cam found out his rear shock works better with air in it who would of thought. The clock ticked away to race time and the lads got into race mode and waiting up the top talking to the other lads in our class. One by one the riders at the top of the mountain got fewer and fewer and it was time for cam to tackle the mountain he blasted out of the blocks disappearing in a cloud of dust to lay down a time 1min 49sec, he waited anxiously down the bottom for Roscoe to come across the line in a time of 1 min 46.4 sec thanks to all the xc riding he been doing lately paying of with the pedally bottom section. After a drink and something to eat they headed back up to the top both hoping to improve on there 1st run time. with cam headed of first he managed to knock of 3 seconds of his time to finish with a time of 1min 46.59sec run. Roscoe headed out of the blocks and thought he was nailing the coarse but was only going close to nailing a couple of pine trees and managed to actually go slower in the second run finishing with a time of 1min 47sec. so with cam stepping up to the best class of all sport class it still wasn't enough to beat Roscoe with him edging cam out by 19 hundreds of a second. until next race have fun.

BAD takes on Uncle Phil (and looses)

Phil and Julie cut sick...

Ben, Cam and Adam hit the pipeline on the weekend, and encountered anti tresspass terrorism at it's bets on the way back out. The reliably unstable Phil O'Reilly and his lovely wife attacked Ad's limo, and Phil landed one on Adam during the attack.

Needless to say he's in deep shit now.

And he deserves it...

Powerlines anyone?

BAD Boys loose phones in a week!

Cam's phone didn't appreciate being run over...

In a very bad week for BAD phones, Cam ran over his, Adam lost his and Dunko's died a horrible electrical death recently. News reports tell us that the boys have all recovered and have replaced/updated, but the Mobile Phone Separation Anxiety Counselling Group was busy there for a few days.

Better luck with these phones lads!

Dunko returns to the mountain. Kinda.

This guy joined the Dunko's 'over the bars rehab group'..

Nothing quite as serious as the guy above, but Dunko did manage to come off on his first run down the mountain since his elegant flip at Issacs. Also manage to land on his crook elbow.
Spot of bike doctor work at Dunko's preceeded the run down the hill which unfortunately only allowed for one run for the day.

When all was said and done, Roscoe hit out a 3.13, Cam 3.30(ish?) and Dunko grabbed his brakes so hard he had to replace his rotors and made it down with a lame crash in the respectable time of 4.34. Best thing about going that slow is that every run will mean a post crash PB for Dunko from here in.

Next big excitement the BAD boys are looking for is the BAD triple crown and the Stromlo WC round at the end of August.

Go hard!

Round 3 of CORC DH series

Once again on saturday the boys headed off to the nation's capital to contest round 3 of the dh series. Cam and Adam got up there early to get some practice in but Adam had a mechanical so the lads headed of to Mal Adjusted to see if they could do an emergency repair. But mal adjusted did not have the parts to repair the bike so adam's race weekend was over. This break in practice was enough time to allow roscoe to arrive in the big smoke. With a quick call to Dunko for direction to stromlo finally all the lads were there. With a few practice runs under their belt they quickly realised that this track had alot of pedalling much to the disgust of cam and roscoe. with practice all done they headed of to their motel (roscoe's sister place). With a good night sleep Cam and Adam headed off to the track bright and early at 6am for a 9am rego. Roscoe deciding he will get some sleep and meet up with the boys later. Cam and roscoe only decided to do 1 practice run and saving there legs for the race. with start time fast approaching the lads got ready and lined up at the top of the mountain. Cam was off first in the Under 19 section and recorded 3:02min run. When Roscoe's time to race finally come around he recorded a time of 2:55min. when the boys meet up at the top to discuss tactics for the second run both were keen to beat the first run. once again cam headed of to lay down another run at 3:02min talk about consistant. Roscoe headed of again very determined to beat his first run. with lactic acid building up fast in his legs and that feeling of throwing up that goes along with it he pushed on to cross the line in 2:51min. the boys leaving nothing on the track and plenty to work on for next race they headed off home.

Tom Cat hits the top of the Charts!

...(above)Even on tip toes, you couldn't see Thomas behind the Syndicate boys. Andrew couldn't even see over the podium!...

Thomas 'Tom Cat' Crimmins took his family on a long weekend holiday to Coffs and packed his bike just in case there was somewhere to ride. It just so happened that it was round 3 of the NSW Dh State Championships which he carved up, his second State victory in a row!

Big up to our man Andrew who, racing quite a few years out of his age group, grabbed 10th in the U15 men from a field of 31! Whoo hooo! Big future for that man too.. Obviously, Andrew showed Tom Cat all his good lines and Tom took advantage.. Keep an eye out for young bro tom!

Check here for all the results and overall standings..

A big hand for the boys up north from the boys down south!

Times and the inside story from the weekend to come

Look forward to seeing you guys soon!
