Days of our Mountain Bikes Part 36

Like the monkeys at Sun City, so are the days of our mountain bikes…

In today’s season finale of Days of our Mountain Bikes titled ‘Omega’, Mike, Tobias, Whitney, Diana and Hel-Met find themselves in a dark, spooky room with no light or air conditioning.

Tobias looks around for an exit, but all the windows have been sealed shut. Nobody understands what’s happening and they all stare at each other blankly.

Suddenly, a white light shines from the rafters and a voice speaks, “I am the giant bike in the sky and you are all at my mercy! Repent now, for your fate is unknown!”

And with that, a blinding white light grows stronger and stronger as they all…disappear.

*Enter cheap 80s theme song*

What will happen next in the Days of our Mountain Bikes?

*Does the number 36 mean anything?*

Vit-T-Go Mountain Bike Super Series 2009 (Race #9)

Watcha doin’ on the 9 August, huh, huh, huh, huh, huh? Well, if you’re anything like the rest of the MTB Shorts crew, you’ll be heading off to the Vit-T-Go MTB Super Series at Babba’s Lodge in Bultfontein (I’m going to be honest and say I have no freaking idea how to get there, but our friends at Supersport have been supreme awesomeness by providing directions for every non-GPS owner, so check out directions here).

Please take note that closing for all entries is Wednesday 5 August at 18h00. So get your number before it’s too late (a little birdie told me that if you enter online, you’ll also get a free T-Shirt – sweeeeeet!).

You know the drill: get the number, arrive there before starting time at 08h30, and race till your little lungs explode to claim a podium place and a mention on the results board. By the way, results of the event will be posted on www.spectrumsport.co.za.

I’ve also been so gracious to create a little summary of the information for everyone. You can thank me later by buying me lunch – that’ll be one Greek pasta salad and peach flavoured sparkling water from Woolworths please!
