2015 State Champs results

Results are up on the results page.

Next “race” is on the 06th December – End of year pony express – registation will be open later this week with more info to follow. The basic rules are:

Each team of 4 must contain at least one junior or one female. Teams race in a consistent order (i,e. rider 1, rider 2, rider 3, rider 4, rider 1, so forth) for two hours. Most laps completed “wins”. No prizes for “winners” although we may have some “random” prizes to give away. If you get my “drift”. What ever “that” means.

This when we’ll also draw the major Giant raffle prize. If you’re after a ticket send an email to timing@ambc.asn.au and we can sort something out in the interim. Tickets will be available on the day as well. You do not need to be there to win it (official raffle rules).

That’s about all I have left for now…..

We’ll be selling tickets for the Giant MTB raffle as well – $5ea and with a maximum of 1,000 tickets up for grabs you’ll be in with a fighting chance to win yourself a Giant Anthem 27.5 1. Massive thanks to Giant Adelaide for their continual support of the club.

The raffle will be drawn at the Pony Express to be held on the 06th Dec at O’Halloran Hill. Because this is an official raffle – rules and stuff – you do not have to be there on the day to claim your prize – although it would be nice so we can a photo of your big smile as you strut up to claim your prize!


We’ll also be going through the AGM formalities, the brunt of which is the election (or re-election) of members to the committee roles. There’s some babble about finances, but it’s only money so I wouldn’t worry about that.

It’s not to late to nominate yourself for a position if you’re interested in any way. Email  info@ambc.asn.au or have a chat with any of us on the day or on the trails.

Following that we will be presenting the Elite Winter Series prizes, followed by the GESA presentations and then the State Champs presentations.

State Champs, AGM, CHC, LivGiant Ride, Raffle

State champs are fast approaching. Here’s a map of what the course may or may not look like – i.e. it’s subject to change because who likes to know everything? The course needs some pruning, so if you’re keen to help out shoot a message over to racedirector@ambc.asn.au so that you can arrange logistics and story times.

Yet another reminder that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held right before presentations – around 2pm. If you’d like to nominate for a position, then send an email to info@ambc.asn.au to let us know. Remember, you can challenge existing committee members, but why would you when we have some great positions available:

  • Timing Coordinator
  • Registration Coordinator
  • Media Coordinator
  • Sponsorship Coordinator
  • Secretary

The timing role stops the person from racing and the committee compensates this by making it a paid position. 

Timing and registration coordinator positions are a must have in order for races to go ahead. 

What’s CHC? COLD HARD CASH – The series points have been tallied and winners have been decided. The prizes will be awarded after the AGM and right before State Champs prizes. Remember that all championship categories in the State Champs attract CHC – some categories even paying to 5th!

Remember that the State Champs will also incorporate the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Now is the time to elect for any position on the committee. If you feel you can assist in any way, then let us know. We have quite a few vacant positions that need filling for next year – two are race critical:

  1. Registration Coordinator
  2. Timing Coordinator (can’t race – paid position)
  3. Media Coordinator
  4. Sponsorship Coordinator
  5. Secretary

To nominate, email info@ambc.asn.au

All positions are declared vacant and any positions that have two or more nominations will be put to a vote by club members only. It is much easier to do this if we know in advance.



FatChat episode 5 for 2015 has arrived. Well, it arrived on the 15th, but it’s been a busy time. Better late than never though!

Head over to the freshly created FatChat page – click here – to get the latest print!


The results page has also been updated with the final Giant XCO round results and the final standings for the Elite Winter Series. Please check over this and if you spot any errors or wish to offer bribes to secure your spot – email timing@ambc.asn.au – and we’ll see what can be arranged.

Congratulations to our XC series winners – Tom Goddard and Terri Rhodes – both riders giving strong performances in every race they rode.

Prizes will be awarded at the State Champs.
