S.S. created the topic: MOUNTAINBIKING - My Other hobby!

That's right since 2005 I do MTB and already had some good results in this sport, national champ last year of 12H races and some good results in 2009 in 24H races... NUTS! :silly:

This year decided to go easy on sports, due to last year beeing so focused on the 12h races I've spent more than 500 hours ridding my bike all year... but I still do 4 to 10 hours a week.

Abroad experience in 2009 in Salzkammergut Trophy Austria, bad, bad, bad... almost got frozen with a unexpected storm...

What I like the most in this sport is having contact with nature and see some beautiful places, friendship and adventures in crossing for several days hundreds of kms/milles only with my bike.

Some photos soon...

Nice pics, there`s some lovely scenery there. The only hills i see anywhere near me are so small you could probably kick a football over them haha

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

Cool pics & you're pretty good to be riding at that level. I used to race mountain bike & did a few national cups & championships but never any endurance racing. I moved to road racing & found I was better at that until knee problems struck.

Roxy you must live in the desert... just kidding! Where do you live?

Marshal I'm not pro... doing this and normal work as well, this is a good level but in Portugal there´s not as many endurance riders as in larger countries, but it sure is hard to ride 24H Solo and even 12H. Love ridding on road to training only never racing.
