Late notice NOB ride - a few of us are meeting at the entrance (through the arch) of the 700 year stadium 11am tomorrow (17th). Will probably go to the enduro training area around the back of the stadium and take it from there.

Hot humid day but no rain, a few of us went to the enduro training area behind the 700 year sports stadium in Chiang Mai

If you only have a couple of hours to spare this is an excellent area to go practice. It's pretty sandy and hilly, so can be used all year round, the only problem is that there's not a lot of shade so it get really hot

Max & Paul surveying a very nasty gap to jump- you dont make the jump and there's spiked rocks all around






Got a few new tracks for Auke's north Thailand map, here Paul on his trails bike trying to find a way through for us

Alex skillfully getting the KLX 250 up a NASTY steep hill






Paul headed down the same slope on his Gas Gas 280 trials bike

Pretty wet and muddy in some places probably time to get this trials tire off and put on a MX tire

Its slopes like that, which the YZ is bloody awful at.. Keeping traction as the pipe kicks in is just tricky.
