Holy cow! What an amazing week we've had here at AMB. Mick went out on a cross country ride with international downhill racing superstar Matti Lehikoinen and Chris got to do some downhill runs with the World Champion Atherton family! Couple that with making deadline this evening (whoa, that was a mission) and preparing ourselves for the World Cup this weekend and it has been a truly memorable week. The World's best are all here now, in our nation's capital, and the racing is going to be mind blowing. If you're still in two minds about coming to Canberra then get your act together and GET THERE NOW!
The Athertons were a great bunch - watching Gee hit come corners on our local DH track was scary, there wasn't much left of the corners after he was done! Their new Commencals looked great too with new Fox Prototype DHX 5.0 shocks and custom paint jobs.
Who's going to take it out? Who's going to suffer in the dust? Can't wait to find out.

Make sure you all get to a TV for Thursday and Friday's BMX and Saturday and Sunday's XC racing!! It's going to be huuuuuuge! Go Gravesy! Go McConnel! Yeah Aussie, woooo! Hope you're all counting the sleeps til the World Cup too - we certainly are. Saturday night's 4x under lights will be incredible, but don't forget your jumper! It'll be chilly! Mountain bikes! Wooooo!

With the World Cup only TWO WEEKS AWAY the quickest riders in the world are starting to migrate South. Confirmed attendees will be the World Beating Atherton family, fresh of the back of multiple World Championship wins. Best thing is AMB will be interviewing them here in Sydney!

Mick is back from his historic death march through the desert! He spotted crocs everyday and got a sore butt. We'll give you a sneak preview of Mick's adventures just as soon as he gets back down South. Chris heads back to Australia tomorrow too, hopefully squeezing in one more ride on the North Shore in the morning - the hills here are big, rooty and steep, Chris will miss them... But he won't miss Canadian coffee. Honestly, is it that hard to make a coffee that doesn't taste like someone strained their urine through a muddy sock?
