All the pain faces and fireroad vistas you can handle in this little teaser.
The 2012 NSW state champs held at Ourimbah on the central coast is done and dusted for another year. Anybody who has ridden the track before will know all about the epic pedaling section about half way down the course. Depending on how deep you dig can be make-or-break for your race run. Due to this physically demanding section, the track usually favours the bigger and more powerful riders who can unleash fury on the seemingly endless fireroad section.

That may not sound fun to you but from go to woe, enjoyment levels never really seem to drop at this one
Whilst the telly the night before hinted at rain, everyone was lucky enough that it was only overcast skies and wind that greeted us at the start of the race. Abandoning the pre race riders meeting, I headed out to a more interesting vantage point, standing just outside of the event centre looking back across it. Even a couple hundred meters away I could hear the start, the countdown and then the distant screams of family members cheering on loved ones. Then it was on.
