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?

UNE 12 hour - Armidale

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

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

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!

Boxing Day MTB Ride - Mt Ovens \ Yetholme Forest

Boxing Day MTB ride, meeting at Winning Edge Cycles 2pm. Who's up for some awesome trails out at Mt Ovens \ Yetholme forest ? Anyone is welcome to come along but be warned it will not be a trundle through the sticks with cucumber sandwiches and a cup of tea my good chaps kinda ride. Bring your bike skills, some mountain goat legs and of course plenty of water\food if you need it.

On the plus side the ride ends with a big downhill section all the way back to the carpark.

Quick, quick, scramble, scramble, fingers poised - type.
YES Entries are now open for the April 21-22 2012 Tathra MTB Enduro. www.mountainbiking.com.au/tathraenduro

Our website probably won’t crash with the stampede of entrants. But it pays to get in early as we have limited numbers to 500 – to ensure the unique character of the event is maintained.
As our aim is PARTICIPATION before PROFIT – Entry prices have also not changed from last year!

WHAT’S THE TATHRA MTB ENDURO
Sweet, sweet single-track by the Sea!
If you’re tired of being marooned in bush try a cycling sea-change!

Hi there NobMob members

Just letting you know that the last mountain bike race for the year will be the Wicked Wombat 8hr Enduro, being held in Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains on New Years Eve.

This event is being held on a newly constructed private trail network that is not normally open to the public. The 19+km trail network contains a pump track, skills park, jumps line, pocket park and flow trail. It's located on a 300 acre property and is part of an outdoor education centre that has modern accommodation and dining facilities.

Thinking it might make for a good first 100km?

Who's planning on doing it next year?

2011 UCI Marathon World Championships

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

Looking at the results of this years Marathon World Championships
I am surprised to observe that this is no Australian representation in the race.

Surely we have athletes of the caliber to compete in such an event. The course being 115km and 2870m of climbing may have even suited some of our elite riders.

for those in the know, I would be interested in understanding why we do no have a team representing
Australia ? Is it a funding / sponsorship issue or some MTB politics ?
