Descending on EWS Derby
With both guys coming off podiums in local races EWS Derby was an awesome way to kick off the international racing calendar and descend on Tasmania. Credit has to go to EMS the event organisers who put on a flawless event in a picturesque part of Australian with some killer trails in amazing forests and rocky outcrops.
Practice Practice days were solid, Friday was about 50km's of runs and getting familiar with the tracks and Saturday saw Kaine and Sam dial their lines and plan for the Sunday race. Wheels, bikes and other gear were flawless all week with many other teams bikes and especially wheels being taken victim by the ruthless rock gardens.
