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

Anyone heading down for this? Its on the June long weekend.

There doesn't seem to be heaps of information on the MTBA website, other than I know its at Stromlo and its on 10th June and the course is 88km in length from what I understand.

Convict 100km - Are people going down Friday arvo or Saturday Morning?

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

Hi All,

If you are doing the 100km, what are you doing about getting there? Are you heading down on Friday afternoon or evening, or at the crack of dawn on Saturday (in which case don't forget there are road works on the M2 with 40km or so speed limits)???

Tathra MTB Enduro, April 22, 2012 - UPDATE

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Yes, It's been raining down in Tathra.

We've done a track inspection today. Wet - but not flooded or event fatal.
Most tracks are on the hill, water drains - and there are some puddles at the bottom.

Rest assured we have no intention of riding on wet or dangerous tracks. It creates too much track damage for us to mend. And too much costly damage for riders.

We are having another track inspection tomorrow morning. Weather is clearing and the forecast (if you put any faith in BOM) is drizzle clearing tonight. Fine for Saturday and Sunday. Plus some drying winds.

Wanting to do this race on Sunday and was wondering if anyone closer to Singleton could give a first hand report on the rainfall they have had there in the past few days. This looks fairly promising compared to the CC and Sydney:

Capital Punishment Water Stop?

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

Does anyone know if there is a water refill station during the "non-race" section through the streets of Canberra? I'm doing the 50km and hoping to get away with just one bottle.

The Common MTB Festival

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Four of us went up to Dungog today to check out the course for the 8hour enduro on The Common this coming weekend. It was our first experience of the trails and we've come away very impressed and looking forward to the weekend. We met Les, Chris and Al who were hard at work putting the finishing touches to the loop and the camping area. The course loop is brilliant with something for everyone and stunning views at every turn. It sounds like a great program across the weekend with live music, mtb movies under the stars and a 16inch bike race Saturday afternoon!

Pietermaritzburg World Cup XC Course - Video

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


http://vimeo.com/38623812

What a sweet course!
However, it does go to show a few things...
1/. Mnt Annan is basically the perfect place to train for a World Cup (other than a few steeper / techo bits)
2/. A 29er is the only bike to ride and rear suspension is not required
3/. Tread on tyres is irrelevant as its all super super groomed.

I'm sure there will be some response that its not hard enough, and maybe boring - but it has claimed skin so far from the best of Australia in test riding.

How good does it look!!!!??

Convict 100 (50km course)

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

I am looking to do the 50km course of the Convict 100 and was wandering if any one can give me an idea of how tough it is. I am reasonably fit BUT my MTB skills are very average. I have done quite a few adventure races, (such as Akuna Bay, Gloucester tri, all about 3 to 4 hrs) but not a straight MTB event. Is this too tough for a first time go at these type of races?

Who wants to ride some dry tracks? The UNE 12 hour is on in one weeks time up in Armidale. Great tracks that have had no rain and lots of trail fairies hard at work. http://www.nemtb.com.au/news/theresstilltimetoge...
Ps - 'a day on the green' is on at the same time for any better halves that would prefer music in the vines instead.

Fundraising in Convict 100, 2012

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hey guys (and gals?) I'm competing in Convict 100 this year (Dirtworks) for the first time. But then again, I'm only 18, so really it has to be my first time!

Anyway, this year, I'm doing it in attempt to raise money for the Salvation Army, and hoping to raise $5 per kilometre I ride. As it's actually 104km, my goal is to raise $520 this year.

My fundraising page can be seen here: http://www.everydayhero.com.au/tristan_white

I was just sent a link to this event by a friend in the area.

It looks like a lot of fun for those strange people who can run as well as cycle. As far as I'm concerned I have a better chance of breathing underwater than running 21 km...... but someone out there might be interested?

The Mont 24hr - Looking for a team

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

Hi,

My brother and I are looking to join a team for the Mont this year, we are 27 and 30 years old. Pretty keen riders, last year our lap times were around the 55-60min mark (hoping to go faster this year!). So if you need a couple of keen guys who are really good team members to join your team, let us know. We will pay for the entries! Shoot me an email at dtomesek@gmail.com

Cheers

Are you free on the weekend of 2-4th March 2012?
Would you be able to spare a few hours, a day or even few to volunteer at the MTBA National race at Awaba?

Why I hear you ask… =/

You can witness 3 World Cup Champions in action in the downhill & cross country has its rising stars to entertain you, whilst you manage the track & spectators. Don’t worry… You will be fed, watered & moved on an hourly basis so you won’t be bored!
