Tuesday Night Racing at Rydal.

It's bunch of fun

We are fairly relaxed, A grade just means you do more laps, and we encourage every one to have a go.

We don't have podiums or prizes so it's all about getting out there and competing against your own time and your mates and then laughing about it at the BBQ afterwards.

So don't be intimidated by the "race" tag. We all just go out to do our best.

Doing the higher grade with more laps will gain you more series points.

There is a shorter track for juniors when we run the longer loops

This got posted over at rotorburn in response to a kid asking what he needed to know before heading to a DH race. As a race oganiser it cracked me up so I thought I'd reshare it.

OK, this is what you need to know:

1. Always stop in the most ridiculous spot possible where other riders can't see you as they approach. Trust me, they'll appreciate it.

Revolution takes on Twilight

hey all. Just got off the phone to JT from Revolution magazine.

He's just heard about our twilight series and was so taken with the concept hes bringing up some photographers with the goal of running a story in the next mag. He want it to focus on grass roots, characters and up and coming riders. All the things that make the sport

Anyway at this stage they are going to aim to get out here for the round on the 19th of January so we need a big roll up to show how popular it is.

4x / Dual Slalom Racing

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

Can anyone comment on the Dual Slalom race that was put on by Rocky Trail Entertainment in March ?

Looking to ride/race this weekend but can't do the 4x do to shoulder and big jumps and not fit enough at the moment to do a full XC race.

Was it fun/good racing?
