Hot and wet

A beautiful, hot day, and my only summer holiday day for this year, as it seems. Naturally, I wnated to make the best of it and decided to make a short training round with my EXC.
IMG_20160630_181152390The whole day was hot and sticky as we fetched the bikes from the garage. In the instant i noticed an empty rear tire on my exc.
No, not now! ­čÖü
I had planned to change the gear oil, but now this, thats to bad.

So I started to drain the gear oil, and unmounted the rear tire.
I tried to remove the valve hood and found the problem.

I do not know, how this could have happen, as I did arrive home the last time safely?
Luckily I did have a spare inner tube (thx to the EBR prepreparations), so, dismantle the tire, change the inner hose, remount the tire, pressurise the hose and mount the tire back to the bike, ready! I have gotten really fast in the meantime ­čÖé

TransoilThe used – wrong – oil was completely drained, so I could tighten the the oil plug and refill the oil. My search for a better oil had shown me the Motul Transoil, but alternative the Motorex

Top Speed would have been a fitting oil too.Style: "Neutral"

Refilling the oil was easily done, so I could give it a try to start the bike. Already sweating heavily i was pleased, that the engine came to live with the second kick. As it seems, the long time in the sun, did help ­čśë

IMG_20160630_163233093_HDRAs I had lost one of my boot straps last week, I also replaced the strap with a new one. And finally we could start our trainingIMG_20160630_103727559








As always, the journey to the training site was unspectacular, the ground itself was in a lushious green, as it seems the rain and the sun had helped the lot to let the bushes grow heavily.

IMG_20160630_171505886_HDRWe proceeded with our training and had an really good session ther, so we didn’t notice the black rain clouds coming closer. until it was to late. We got really wet, and as the rain was mixed with tiny hail it stung like thousand needles, as we only wore our mesh protector wests.Ouch.

Droven away by the rain, we arrived at home totally wet, we drained our boots and hung up our gear to let it try ove rthe next days.

But, it was a really succesfull training, and the best: We got a cooling off right to the end, perfect! ­čÖé

without words

2 weeks to the ebr, the whole long weekend same bad weather, all dirt tracks closed, really bad…


there was no sun over the last days,
… there was rain
… there was fog

but we didn’t expect to get into the swamp, as we arrived at our favorite training spot.


But we were really happy as we managed to pull us and our bike back out of the deep ground┬á ­čśë┬á Not to much driving, but a lot of lifting┬á ­čśë

Because it looks so beautiful

Erzberg 2014

it was cold, it was wet, it was fun!!

I did manage with each prolog run, to have one major mistake which really did cost a lot of time. But still, i managed to keep position 17th in both runs of the ladies cup among 30 starters there.
It certainly wasn’t enough to get into hare scramble, not even close┬á ­čśë but that was never the target.
So, I survived Erzberg!!
