These guys have been doing a great job in building XC single track from scratch, so any support we can provide would be great.

I'll be participating in the XC. I would hesitate to call it racing. For those who haven't raced with us before, in the XC we often get 100+ riders to a club XC which makes the racing pretty good.

We run grades A through to E as well so there is something for everyone and this year we have introduced graded racing for the ladies.

On the DH side of things, this year we are starting C and D grade from the road gap below the rock garden so as to cut out the most technical section of the trail for the beginners.

Come on up for a race though, its generally a pretty good day.

Can anyone say MUD!!!!

Track was looking sweet until the downpour during rego and the pre race briefing. The track held up really well, but the maintenance day next weekend will be welcomed.
