Climbing camp #9.
This will be a first, I'm not going to ride the big hill! I figure after some 14 or so ascents of it over the last 4 years I don't need to do it again, expecially one week out from a sprint series round. This camp was touch and go as to it going ahead, but we had a couple of late entrants so it's all going to work out ok for everyone. Phew!
Gear to pack : my bike, ergo, spares for everyone, food, prizes, laptop, movies, clothes (it may be quite chilly up there!) etc. I'm going to squeeze in a session in the powerhaus before I go too.

Good luck to all the aboc'ers racing at the Metro's this weekend. I'm sure I'll get SMS updates as they get their results!
