The Elite points table has also been updated – make sure you check this – I’m prone to crunching numbers funny sometimes. If you spot an error email timing@ambc.asn.au.

Non-qualifiers for the series have been removed – Remember, you need to race in at least 2 x Hammer Nutrition 4 hour enduros and 2 x Giant XCOs to qualify.

Massive thanks to everyone who helped out today.

If you were wondering what that buzzing noise was, here’s a sneak of what was captured by Brett Caston and his drone –

Volunteers required for this round:

  • BBQ cookers – if you can turn a snag that’s what we need. Ideally two people for this – 1 x cooker, 1 x money handler
  • Track pack up – the more, the merrier!

If you can help out in any capacity send an email to info@ambc.asn.au (our Volunteers coordinator is on leave for this race).

Course map is:

and course marking will be happening at some point on Saturday.

Sadly, the next episode of FatChat will not be available until after this race – the author is away for the next two weeks. I’m sure they’ll make something up to give this round some coverage though!

MTBA petition for funding

AMBC-MTBAMore funds for MTBA to engage in elite and grass roots participation activities! What more could you want?

MTBA have released a petition to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) to provide funding for Elite level and grass roots MTBing, much like they already do for Road, Track and BMX.

To check out the petition – click here – you can also sign it here.

Apparently they’re only looking for 100 “signatures”, pretty sure Adelaide alone could provide that.

Reminder to register!

AMBC-Hammer-Series

Round 2 of the Hammer Nutrition 4 hour enduro series is coming up on Sunday.

Entries close @ 10am tomorrow morning – online only. Click here to begin registration.

Course map has been released and set up will occur on Saturday starting from 09:30am. If you’re interested in helping, send an email to racedirector@ambc.asn.au to confirm details.

 

If you’re keen to volunteer there are positions available for people of all experience:

  • BBQ – gourmet chef certificate is preferable but not essential. 2 people – server and a cooker
  • Track set-up – as detailed above. This is a good way to get a solid look at the trail prior to the race. Make sure you don’t miss a turn and go up a *steep* fire road.
  • Track pack-up – a good oppurtunity to go back over the course to have a laugh at the reminisce on all the fun you had in the last 4-5 hours.
  • Race HQ setup/packup – assist with important things like erecting marques, laying down cables, opening up trestle tables and other fun things. Then do it all in reverse order – just to spice it up!

If you can assist with any of these duties, email racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au to get your name on the list! Remember, all volunteers get a free transferable race entry and access to a feed from the BBQ.
