3rd Rider wanted for 7hr at Glenrock

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

Hey all,

We're chasing a 3rd rider for the RockyTrail 7hr at Glenrock in a couple of weeks.

We'll be looking to go pretty quick and are looking for someone at a similar level, but also just there for fun and to have a good race. If you're keen to have a crack, let me know.

If we can't find anyone, we'll probably just stick with pairs and see how we go.

Hey guys

Are their any clubs out there who run races for kids ?

I need to find some races for my 9yo to do. HE done the 20km race at the Husky100 at the weekend and was going really well in the lead group until the sign vandal got him seriously off course and had to wait for mum to catch up....

What is best first race to aim for?

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

Greetings,

New to the sport but rapidly becoming addicted to the point that, even though it's only very early days, I am keen to participate in an event in the foreseeable future.

My goal would only be to complete not compete, then working up distances over time.

I would welcome any advice or opinions on what events might be most suitable for a novice such as myself.

Thanks!

Endurance Info

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

I am currently training for my first solo 8 hour in November. I've been searching the net for a few months now trying to get some 'tips' for endurance events, but I'm not finding a lot of info. A small 3-part series by Mark Fenner has been handy for training.

Anyone know of any good mtb specific websites or books? 'Ed Rides Bikes' is a great read, but not a whole lot of inside knowledge.
