Is anybody here going to race in this event? I am doing all 4 days, and I expect to be pretty stuffed by the end. Smiling

Also, as this race will pass through Glenrock I wonder what sort of impact, if any, there might be on the trails. Although I've only been in Newcastle for 3 years I don't recall seeing any race days here.

I live in the area, & thought it might be fun!

Then I saw the entry fee & thought otherwise. The event does look great - & the travel service provided is awesome.

But... that's a lot of money. Just my 2c.

I really hope there's a good turnout! It'd be great to have a successful multi-day mtb event in Newy.

Looking forward to it. I've done some road riding up that way but no MTb.

Yes, I agree, they are asking too much and will turn a lot of riders away, but am still looking forward to it

Well, it's $99 for one stage using one of the discount vouchers getting around. Cheaper than the Convict for example. But yeah, for all 4 days it certainly racks up a bit.

Too late for me now, but for next time, where do you get a discount voucher?
