You should check out the entry list for M21 & W21 for our state MTBO champs this weekend if you want to see a lack of strength (or even names).
If I hadn't already got a race I would have returned to give Tash some competition!
I don't blame you for not coming. It's pretty far away and your idea of competition means Tash would still win the trophy regardless of the outcome.
It seems I have someone else in my category for the middle distance at least, someone who I've never ridden against before and in fact hasn't done MTBO (in WA at least) but he is a JWOC representative from South Africa.
