Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Leatt have just come on board as our first Gold level sponsor for the 2010 State DH championships, donating over $1300 worth of Leatt gear towards our prize pool.

Hoping to hear back for some more sponsors shortly, including naming sponsors, so we can open up entries by the end of the month.

In other news. Announcements for the grant funding we applied for to construct the new DH trail has been delayed again so we are now looking at late July before we find out whether we have been successful.

8hr pics

For those that didn't see them on facebook most of Chris Prohms photos from the 8r can now be seen here When not help out make races happen Chris has been shooting DH and XC for years and it shows. A lot of your ugly mugs are in there so its worth a look. If there is one you want full size let me know and I'll put you in touch

Dave Batemans photos are still to come and will be posted at the same spot
, I've seen a couple of the shots he put on his flicker account and all I can say is Wow, they are going to be worth the wait

2010 CTMBC Winter series

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hey All, I've been struggling to find dates for the winter series where I'm available that don't clash with other things so tonight at the end of the Darkness round we had a chat and decided to just run with a round on the 4th Sunday of the Month.

XC Will take place at the Concrete rd end with rego and 9.30 and racing at 10.
We'll used different track configurations and foramts (Long track/short track) to mix things up
Also hoping to slip in a round or two on the awesome trail on the Blowes' property but need to get a few things sorted first.

Lidsdale Logging latest info

Just got this in my inbox

Hi Craig

This is just a heads up that the Lidsdale Forest (north of the Highway), is earmarked for harvesting in early Autumn in 2011.

While this does not affect your events planned this year, after Easter next year, there will be no activities or events approved in this area due to

Forestry Operations.

Hopefully, this lead time will allow you to identify some other potential sites. As a suggestion, if you able, there are large AO maps of each Forest available for purchase

8hr entries are open

Hey all the course I want to use is this one

it gives us about 10km

A little bit of work needs to be done as there are a couple of tree down across the track.
The climb up beside the fire rd to get to the northern fire trail needs a rake as does a few other bits.

IF anyone has time to get out there and just give it a bit of love please do. My weekends are tied up but I plan to spend a couple of afternoons or early mornings out there

Hi gang a couple of things on the go at the mo

1. 8hr Entries for the SRAM Singletrack Mind Series are NOW OPEN!

Fi and Joe came up and got a bit of promo footage at the twilight on Tuesday (again I apologise to the DH crew for pulling timed run with out notice but if this goes off well it should be a good little earner for our club and funds generated will go away towards finalising the new DH trail)

Hey all.

Fi and Joe of chocolate foot wish to come up to get a bit of promotional footage for the upcoming 8hr and nut out the rest of the details.

The plan at this stage is for them to come out the the last Twilight round this Tuesday.
They need to get a bit of footageof xc while the light is still good so if peeps can turn up around 5-5.30 that would be awesomeness.
