What better place to provide a Moots customer ride experience than from Rick Stein’s place at Mollymook on the NSW South coast. Warm weather with bright sunshine in August, fabulous food and a sale to boot!!
After 20 Stages Dave Grosshans had a 15 hour lead but in such an event that could disappear very easily. Here is a grab from http://tourdafrique.com/2014/02/betam-betam-kebat-mando-day/
“If Stage 23 of the TDA – the 3rd of 4 days between the historical Ethiopian towns of Axum and Lalibela – was part of the Tour de France , it would’ve received “Beyond Haute Classification.” Although only 84 km long, it featured 2650 meters of climbing on rocky, corrugated dirt, including a 10 km final ascent to camp that averaged 9%, and at times exceeded 15% grade.”
Dave is a very methodical and focussed individual who chose the MOOTS Psychlo X because he wanted to finish and to spend as little time as possible working on the bike during the event. He also wanted the comfort and “tuneability” afforded by the MOOTS YBB as there are such varied conditions on the event.
There is still a loooooong way to go!

Not sure if that’s an attempted bunny hop or not…
and he as made the winning pass the Koala to the cyclist said…..?
a) oh the bells the bells!
b) do you think that is Eucalyptus globulus, pryoriana, viminalis or ovata?
c) can you tell I’m wearing Rapha!
Can you spot the kitchen sink?
It used to be how many people can you fit into a VW Beetle or a Mini. Now the World by Cycle guys have apparently taken it up a notch.
An alternative theory is that this is the UCI’s next step in Team budget reduction moving to the self sustaining Pro Tour rider – think of the savings!
Stunning scenery and riders all around , add in a second to none facility that is FASTER and you have a great “shoulder” season training ground to give your Parlee and legs a stretch, isn’t it Kung FU?
