16 August 2004 - Sleepless in the Saddle
Martin spent the weekend with a few mates (Grant, Mark & Jason) competing in the Shimano Sleepless in the Saddle 24hr mountain bike race.

The Sleepless in the Saddle is a a team mountain bike event over 24hours. This years course covered a tough muddy 12km.


The team (Muddy Bikers) eventually came 31/115! A good effort!

A great effort by Mark and Grant ensured that we had a fantastic campsite to rest up during our few hours off.

Our well kitted out campsite!

Our last few hours of racing was spurred on by Sarah and her promise of a bacon butty!
