How do you roll?
We like to go far - as fast as possible. Push off, tuck in, gather speed and hope that one push off the start line is enough to take you to the finish line fastest (no mid-race pedal stroke allowed).
If you haven't had the thrill of taking part in a Rolloff yet - don't miss the Rolloff World Championships held on Saturday 12 November in Bundanoon. It's possibly the only MTB event in the world where skinsuits and aero suits make a regular appearance.
Find out more about this seriously fun event on the website.
Those of you who have ridden the Highland Fling in previous years will know there's always a theme. 2016 is no exception!
Do you know what this year's theme might be?
Here's our hint...
Another proud anniversary today for Bundanoon, our home town and home of The Highland Fling and Pearl Izumi Bundy Run
Fling journey day...and no journey is truly complete without a challenge to overcome that can be spoken of for years to come - in hushed tones and with painful expressions. For us it's The Wall.
The Wall was a Fling fixture from year one in the middle stage, The Shimano Stage. We couldn’t miss it out, even after Where’s Wally? had been built. The Wall is a short, very steep section of fire trail that, in the middle 20 metres or so, has riders hanging low over the bars while still trying to keep some weight on the rear. As Pink Floyd put it ‘All I don’t need is another Slip on the Wall.’
So with what some might say was typical Wild Horizons bastardry, Full Flingers and 100Milers get to ride almost to where the top of The Wall levels out and ducks into All You Need. Then, watching aghast other riders coming up from The Wall, they ride Where’s Wally backwards and make their way around over a couple of kilometres to…The Wall.
All you need after that is, well, All You Need. The first section of 3km of singletrack that will leave you singing 🙂
Just joining us on the journey - see what you missed on the website.
