2014 commonwealth games MTB course

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Following discussions about the 2000 Olympic MTB track, I thought some of you might like this article about the 2014 commonwealth games course in Glasgow.

http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/201...

Looks like it will be a good track for the race but more importantly, it's clearly seen as a big draw card for MTB tourists as well as locals. Some very mature comments from the local council as well,as the news reporter.
The track is easy riding distance from where I was brought up in the East end of Glasgow .....

Husky vs Fling

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I was wondering if anyone could share their opinion on the husky vs fling. I did the husky last month and it was my first 100km. Took me 7 hrs... Anyway a few riders said to do the fling and its a great enduro which I've now entered but I've heard since then it's a much tougher ride than the husky and a lot more climbing. That's cool if it is but if anyone can share their experiences I can suss out how much I really need to step up the training. Cheers all.

Olympic MTB times and coverage

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Anyone not living under a rock will know that thing in London is starting soon. However did you know the men and women's MTB events won't happen till the last 2 days. So we have to face countless days of running, jumping and gay wrestling* before we get to the fun stuff.

Woman
Sat 11th Aug 21.30 (AEST)

Men
Sun 12th Aug 22.30 (AEST)

I'm going to take a punt and say these will not be televised by any of the local networks. The BBC however are streaming every single event live on the iPlayer - if you know how to get it.

Enjoy!

* I've heard Gazza is looking forward to this

Help! I spotted an ad for a new mountain bike movie release in the Herald this week and then someone else at work pinched the paper! Can't find anything on the net and don't know the name of the movie. Anyone got any info please?

XCM Rankings

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

So - with 4 races down (Wombat, Cap Pun, Convict and Husky) and 2 to go (Woolombi and Fling) the rankings are really starting to take shape and make interesting reading.

http://www.cyclenation.com.au/results/ranklist.a...

Remember - its your best 3 results that count, and also that there are 25% more points on offer at the Fling. Its going to get VERY tight.

BTW - how many nobmobbers are listed there in the top 20 on the first page? Great work - Dicko, PS, Brian, Tate and 'Anthem X1 Girl'.

Introducing the Kowalski Classic

For nigh on two decades, local trail building legends Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the mysterious Kowalski Brothers have been hand-crafting trails in the ACT region. Thanks to their work, Sparrow Hill and East Kowen Forest have become single track nirvana. The innuagural Kowalski Classic gives you the chance to race it all in one hit. Ride the Bird, then the Kow, then the Bird, then the Kow!

FULL DISTANCE (Circa 90-100km):

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

After the sell out success of last years Kanangra Classic, we can announce that we will have an extra 300 spots up for grabs in this years event!
Spaces are filling fast, so if you missed out on a spot last year, now is the time to get your entry in.

For those who don't know about this event, the Kanangra Classic is a great weekend of outdoor recreation held in the beautiful Kanangra Boyd National Park. Located just 146km west of Penrith and approx 30 minutes from the Oberon township the Kanangra Boyd National Park is an iconic part of the greater Blue Mountains.

Is there a way of following this weekends 24hr World Champs?

I'd love to follow it. I'm assuming this WEMBO site is it... although there are no links I can see re: live timing.

I did the Convict 50km last weekend (loved it) and will be doing the Husky 50 end of June. Can anyone tell me what I can expect in comparison to the Convict? Hopefully when I get a few more of these under my belt, I won't have to keep asking for everyones advice.....

Local downhill tracks Orange Bathurst Lithgow?

Hi all!
Keen to get back into downhilling, I live in Bathurst and was wondering if Orange or Lithgow have any legal tracks to ride and whether there are any races held there? I had a search but didn't turn up much, not a good sign!

Thanks!

Short distance races for beginners?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hello all,

Reading all the posts about the recent convict 100 has inspired me to give racing a go. Being relatively unfit I was wondering if there are any races for beginners around the 15km mark?
