Tathra MTB Enduro, April 22, 2012 - UPDATE

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.

I will post an update around 10am .

If you are heading down to Tathra on Friday - we have closed the singletrack to keep it smicko for the race.

Please, please, please don't ride it and ruin it for others.

There's plenty of fire road - if you want a pre-race hitout. Drop in at Tathra Beach and Bike for directions.

Otherwise we are all excited about Sunday!
Happy trails.....

We have dodged a WET bullet down in Tathra.

The Tathra MTB Enduro is a GOER.

The Sun is shining. It's 24 degrees.

The single track is damp but good. (We've walked it all this morning)
We have closed tracks for riding today - to preserve them for the race.

The rain has meant some course modification - as we have lost 6km of low lying land that wound around the Bega River. It's ooozing water - and we are conducting a MTB race not TOUGH MUDDER so it's gone, gone gone!

There are some puddles and the creek crossings in the 100k are up - and dropping.

However we've added some other single track.

THIS MEANS the Bridges and Evil Tom are back. However they are at the front end of the 50k and 100k courses. (Before you get tired!)

The 20k race will also encounter the heart starting Evil Tom climb - but NO bridges.

We are going out now with the rakes and bunting ribbon.

Any questions - post them below.

Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.
