Manly Dam 2 Laps

A few Mates have been talking about "Two in an hour" round the Dam, a few have tried and failed. I thought i'd have a blast tonight. It was Horrible!!!
I know Wazza's done a good time so my top spot won't be for long!
First lap : 28.33 ( only 5 seconds off my PB for one lap )
Second : 31.09
My advice is go hard on the first to give yourself a buffer for the second

Bloody good effort!

I'm yet to do a single hot lap round the Dam.

My best was with Giantnut late last year when we did a 1.08 for the "twins"
If you are good you can manage a sub 30, but to back it up with a double... man thats super awesome...
I'll give it a go after the Fling...
So which bike was it on???

I went around tonight too, lucky you didn't see a rider sprawled out at the bottom of the technical rocky downhill section after a spectacular OTB! That bloody hurt too Eye-wink

You ok? There was a few out tonight.
Must be last minute Fling Panic/training!
@ Pivot. No West Head for Me. I'm doing the Fling on the crosser!

A few patches of skin missing off my legs and some general bruises but I'm all good, will feel it in the morning no doubt! The wife isn't too happy as I was riding solo.

There was a lot of traffic out tonight and I passed at least 3 riders travelling the wrong way.

Once again, excellent effort on the lap double it will be insanely difficult to top!

at 92% and 86% average heart rate - seems like you still have some left in the tank Eye-wink

That was the warm up and cool down ride to and from home that brought the average down. During the two laps ( more on the first ) I was pretty much on the rivet!

Looks like you need to upgrade your max HR to 187. Gotta keep you honest mate!

Just checking - So are the rules that you must be below 60 mins to post a time?

GAZZA's picture

It's just the aim of the game.
If you have a crack at two laps, feel free to post times.
