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 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.
