CTMBC club news 19/09/15

Hi all. It’s been a while and we’re rousing from our winter slumber so there is a bit of news to speak of


Tuesday Night racing starts up again this week. 6.30 at Rydal. Lights will be mandatory of a few weeks yet. The club does have some spare lights to loan out so if you know someone who wants to give it a try without dropping $$$ on new lights the need to get in touch and let us know

Again we are offering free entry to women and juniors under 16 (licence fees apply) and have the come and try incentive were we cover entry and day licence on your first race.

Keep your eye on the club calendar for details

Latest round of the 4 Seasons series was a great success with quite a few new faces which was great to see especially with all the other options happening that weekend.

Trail work continues with improvement and extra options. Again keep your eye on the calendar for when you can lend a hand.

DH A Big congratulations to Joel Willis who represented us on the Australian Junior Team this year. 2 top 10 finishes at World Cup races and 26th at the World Champs. Awesome effort mate we are all very proud of you.

Last cub round was cancelled due to a forced change in the State series. This will be rescheduled later in the year

Lithgow State Round.

The Rocky Trail Entertainment RedAss state DH series rolls into Lithgow on the 26-27 of September.

The venue is the Lithgow Pony Club in Sheedys gully

As always we need volunteers to make sure the event runs smoothly. If you can lend some time over either the Saturday or Sunday to help marshal it would be greatly appreciated.

It’s always a great spectacle so bring family and friends up to check out the action. BBQ will be provided

Other news.

I was recently approached by one of the Lithgow councillors about meeting with council in regards to a proposal to formalise and promote some of the trails around Hassans Walls

I had a surprisingly positive meeting with the works committee and intend on putting a submission to the tourism advisory board.

I want Council to take ownership of it as something positive for Lithgow but there should be opportunities for the club as well. Formalised trails could open the opportunity for Enduro style events and short course XC and Cyclocross trails may be an option.

If anyone has any comments or recommendations I’d be happy to hear them.

Tour de Range.

Once again CTMBC is looking to host the Tour de Range, a 90km charity road ride.

We are currently waiting to hear back on and hope to have some news shortly
