Alpine Classic 2012 – Updated

January 30th, 2012 Posted in Events, People, Uncategorized

Update: Eleri sent us this excellent photo of herself on her custom Bobo – “It’s at the top of the climb up Mt Hotham and that is Mount Feathertop in the background.   It’s at about 1700m after a climb up from 400m and the sun has just come up.   Only another 190km to go at this stage!  I did the Alpine Classic Extreme 250km ride and did it almost exactly to my target time of 15 hours.”

Have a read through this thread on the DHBC Forum for Eleri’s full ride report.

Congratulations to all those who participated in the various events held over the weekend down at Bright. We’ll try and get some ride reports from the riders we know who went down for it.

Note the handlebar bag, lighting and hydration on a modern road bike. Check here and here for alternative views on the ideal bike for Audax style riding.
