Heya peeps, did anybody go and watch Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last night? I didn’t…damn tickets were all sold out because of these pesky kids who have nothing better to do in the holidays *yes, I am grumpy today*

Speaking of sell-outs, did you hear about the Highland Fling Mountain Bike Marathon in Australia? It was sold out just 5 hours after registration opened! Apparently, all 1500 places were booked quickly and the organisers had to turn away another 2000 entrants. That’s actually quite phenomenal considering that the event is only scheduled for 7-8 November. For more info on this story, click here.

Going back to Harry Potter…I’m still bummed, okay? I really wanted to go watch it! The other movies that were showing were so boooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnng. Mind you, I should’ve gone to see Megan Fox on the big screen again *drool*

Have a great day and keep warm everyone!

2009 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships

G’day mate. Since most South Africans are hopping on the one trip boat to Australia, I thought I’d post a blog on an event happening there for all you trait…err mean readers (just kidding).

From 1-6 September, Stromlo Forrest Park in Canberra, Australia will be hosting the 2009 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships. Featuring the who’s who of champions, this event will be an action packed spectacle that will thrill every single sheep and kangaroo in the outback.

Expected riders include Christoph Sauser, Margarita Fullana, Rachel and Gee Atherton.

Pssst…here’s a nice scoop – admission will be free from that Tuesday to Thursday. So all you cheapskates, like myself, will be able to get in for nothing.

One man. One adventure….aaaah who am I kidding I’m not Pablo Francisco!
