JB500 Ė 2020 (The year of COVID)
Players: Invar, XRCass, XRAdam, Jacko, Jase400, Jack

The route was set and slightly tweaked from previous years to ensure we get to Jurien early enough to enjoy a beer. Invar took to leading first and headed north through the ever-bulging suburbs to hit the days trails. Initial tracks where whooped out from the local gromets riding them to death, so our minds had to adjust to sand riding really quickly and Jase400 suddenly regretted having 30 litres of fuel onboard. Whilst XRAdam nearly retired from injury when we committed to overtaking Jase400 on the outside of a bend heading directly for a tree across the track, his quick reaction to slam on the brakes, wash off some speed and dump the bike saved him from serious injury.

Once past Yanchep Invar wound the throttle on and set a cracking pace to Moore River and then onto Lancelin. With only 6 riders the cornerman system flowed fast and uninterrupted by any trail side incidents. Quick lunch at Lancelin and a swap of lead riders, XRCass took us onto the open fire trails east of Indian Ocean drive. This is where your top speed was only limited by the size of your gonads. Word has it some reached speeds of 140km/h, these are seriously big gonads.

We hit Cervantes in no time and onto Jurien Bay, whilst detouring to explore a few more trails as we were making great time. At Jurien Bay we devoured the beers, shared plenty of bullshit around the table and kicked on at the Tavern.

The next day was the recovery/survival ride, the tide was in our favour so the sand was hard and manageable most of the way home. We did all the fuel stops in reverse and rode the tracks close to the beach or on the beach itself. As expected, the last 50km were hard yakka the closer we came to civilization the deeper are the whoops.

Pipidinny Road marked the end of the ride with 499.5km on the speedo, absolutely awesome ride as always. See you next year and make sure you donít miss it !

What an awesome Capel 200 in every way. Best tracks in years in both variety and condition, how good was the section around the pine plantation! Best weather in years with Friday afternoon and evening nice and clear and Saturday just a little overcast to keep things cool.

Great fun as always around the fire at the traditional CQ spot and enjoyed catch up with guys who I basically haven't seen since last years event. I forget how much fun I have and will look to do some more rides.

Daniel and I just did the one loop. Had some time pressure to be back in Perth. Pity they don't do the Novice Loop like they have in years past. It is normally for the newbies or those that can't get around another 70kms. I remember it being very fast and flowy so a lot of fun to throw in a bit of 'racing'.

Well do to Jeremy and Rob and the entire IARC and all the sponsors and volunteers!!

Great ride to Jurien and back on fri/sat - no breakdowns of any kind (mechanical, physical or mental). Everyones contribution/effort/prep/participation made it flow really well so thanks to all. I half expected something or someone to go arse up but we made it 8 hrs each way without a problem. The only issue I remember (apart from Cervantes no longer having a beach) is someone jumping into the wrong and already occupied bed !! Ah well, what happens in Jurien stays in Jurien.

Players - Inver, Jack, Jacko, Jase400, XRAdam, XRCass.

That's 17 so far for Northcliffe, this should keep Duncan at the pub happy.
Kudos for arranging this Jack.

If Jacko can hold off riding for the next 3 weeks, this will be his 200th ride.

Great effort by the Ironstone Adventure Riding Club getting this years Capel 200 rescheduled & up & running.
Their biggest one ever with 270 riders doing the 75klm loop.
Some of us only got one lap in, others did 2 & someone even chickened out on their third loop even though they had time to spare.
Just goes to show that we can have huge events like this during the Covid pandemic if we do the right thing & keep it at bay.

JB500 done and dusted.
Once I recover and can peel myself off the lounge a report will follow.

Thanks to Invar, Cass, Adam and Helen for organising yet another premier endurance sand ride.

Thanks for a great camp out at Capel to celebrate my 50th guys. Unfortunately that snapping sound in my knee when I went down in the mud has got worse with the trip home. Off to the hospital in the morning to try and get an MRI to see what damage has been done. Hopefully have some answers on Monday and my room with en-suite maybe up for grabs down at Northcliffe if the news isnít good. Lots of pain and struggling to walk on the knee now 😱😭
