Pits are getting busy this morning at Stromlo (It's still hard to call it "Mount"), first practise has started and riders saying that actually it's a fun course. Josh Bryceland for one was suprised at how much speed he was carrying through the last section, you still have to pedal a bit but less so than last year.

Special Worlds bikes are beginning to roll out of the pits, here's Sam Hill and Brendan Fairclough on the SX Trail.
