The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

8.25 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Ride Database Entry: 
Ourimbah State Forest
Meeting Point: 

North End of Red Hill Rd, Ourimbah State Forest. There's a large-ish parking area here, just off the main sealed road. There is also a smaller parking area a little further (400m or so from the road) where the trail splits - this second area is the usual meeting point. If you end up driving up a steep hill you've gone too far.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

You know the drill... come race on the sweet Ourimbah single track.

is nigh and I'm NOT in a team, I've just done the solo thing so now I need to focus on fun and top speed.
Dylan is still looking to team up so I thought we could mix and match the mighty Lap Dancers and the Magnificent Mixed Nuts and do 2 teams of 3 Smiling
Who's up for that?

Rob's picture

I do believe Dylan has been snapped up as a replacement for Cupcake. Can the Lap Dancers stand up to the challenge? Eye-wink

... was last year's edition. Best fun at first ever mountain bike race I had! Laughing out loud

Too soon it has come. Not ready I am. My shoulder still dodgy is. Dang! Sad

Hmmm. Speaking like Yoda I am. Hawkeye shut up now. Sticking out tongue

LadyToast's picture

I might have double booked myself.... at a risk of not confusing things, perhaps I should go solo...

HAHA, like that will happen.

I'm happy to join which ever team will have me, as Hawkeye said, last year was a blast.

Damien's picture

Solo singlespeed again.

dangersean's picture

I have entered in the solo single speed category also.... what have I done?!?

Supagav's picture

Sean good to see you are joining fellow solo single speeders. I will be there also. I know of one other that is as "mad" as us so 4 in total so far. Looking forward to it (except the climb from the graveyard to the firetrail).

Damien's picture

I hear John has no reason as to why he cant enter solo SS now.

Damien's picture

A true singlespeeder always races in the solo category so you have done the right thing.

Bernd's picture

sorry mate, I may not be "A true singlespeeder always races in the solo category so you have done the right thing."
as I did a fast lap (Ourimbah was gr8t this afternoon, even it was very windy and I got wet on my first lap) on the "old" bike today. (2nd lap on the SS was over 10min slower!) I will use the FAT for the mixed pair race I'm in.
maybe next year I'll do a Solo SS........ ohhhhhh......
But I'm also in for the SS Champs the weekend after! realy look forward to that event, too!!!

JB's picture

If anyone is looking for an extra rider let me know

I am keen to join a 2 or 3 person team.

dangersean's picture

Can no longer go to this one.... My entry is up for grabs in the classifieds....

LadyToast's picture

The same as JayBee, I've just realised that although I have my name down here I don't have a ticket for this race. It's a long shot but is anyone looking for a team mate?

Whisperer's picture

Saw Groover's post above, and since I've had to miss the Fling, I could be a go'er for this one - if I can get an entry, just noticed they have closed, but you never know, one may come up near the date a they so often do.

Assuming I can get an entry, I'm happy to team up for 3 or 4 in the 40+ category.
I heard Gazza and Martine are doing a pair, so there's half of the 'Nuts' gone,

Steve01?, Groover? LadyToast?
Are you guys entered yet?

Whisperer's picture

I entered this request here:
But, in case anyone is on this thread and wants to sell their entry I'm interested!
(PM or call me)

LadyToast's picture

If you can find the tickets Whisperer, I'm in.

arghvee's picture

Yeh, whisperer, am 40+ and keen to join if you need another.

Damien's picture

For those of you who didnt get yorselves organised have a look here.

evan's picture

Are we trying for the same spot as the last couple of years ?

Usual spot


Damien's picture

The track doesnt run past there any more.

BT's picture
LadyToast's picture

evan's picture

Its not far from it tho. Its just the other side of that grass or to the right, near a narrow fire trail.
