Known as one of the hardest races on the Australian mountain bike calendar the Otway Odyssey has been a favorite of Bec’s over the years, this obvious by the 6 she has completed! I on the other have had serious problem’s in my few attempts of the race getting through the feed and pass the petting zoo on the first loop, and as such have be found happily playing with the piglets for the later part of the race! This was Bec’s first race back after some time off with injury and rehab, what a race to choose as a tester?! She tested pretty damn good! (See below)
The Kona Odyssey was my first race back for quite a while & I can honestly say that I had no expectations leading into the event, especially knowing how difficult it is. So to come away with a 3rd overall in the elite women was great! Thanks so much to Liv/giant for all their support. My Giant XTC 29er rocks… Congratulations to Renata Bucher & Peta Mullens taking out 1st & 2nd. Well done also to Naomi Hansen on 4th & Liv/giant team mate Sarah Riley on 5th place.
