Looks like the weather gods are on our side with no rain forecast for sunday morning and with the breezes leading up to the race the trails will be absolutely prime*


So with no reason to not race, its time to get entering!!  If you haven’t entered yet, then wait no longer….click here. A duo team option exists for those who are not to keen on the full 4hrs. Rego closes 10am saturday.

  • The third and final 4hr enduro race for 2016 is being held at craigburn farm
  • All event information around categories, costs, start times, and the like can be found on our enduro page; click here
  • To enter as a solo or team click here.  If you run in to any problems with your entry then please contact David on timing@ambc.asn.au
  • For those who haven’t been to a club race, we will have a toilet at the race.  We will also fire up the bbq – sausages and soft drink will be available for purchase at the race, so don’t forget to bring that spare change.

VOLUNTEERS – The club races wouldn’t be possible without our fabulous volunteers that help out.  If you are able to help out this sunday or your cheer squad is able to help out then please contact Robyn on racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au .  We still need a few people to help with race pack up and also bbq duties.  All volunteers receive a free race entry and sausage.

MEMBERSHIP – If your membership has expired or you’re not a member then now is a great time to renew and avoid paying a $25 day license. Racing as a club member works out cheaper if you plan on racing all the club events and your membership will also allow you to race at a discounted cost at other mtba affiliated events (GESA, Inside Line, PACC Cyclocross).   Click here to find out more about membership or to join/renew.  If you’re not 100% convinced that racing is for you then you can still race at member prices by taking out MTBA’s 2-month free trial membership offer click here.

LOCATION – Make sure you rock up to craigburn farm mtb trails this sunday morning. Racing starts at 9am and rego will open 8am. The gates will be open so drive in along craigburn rd and park either side of craigburn rd.  You’ll see the start/finish area set up just up from the main trailhead.  For details on how to get there click here.

COURSE MAP – For those of you who raced last year, the following map will look extremely familiar.  That may be so, however, 2016 is the reverse of 2015. From the start/finish the lap follows the fenceline to cowbones, around cowbones in an anticlockwise direction and up the fireroad, then in to full length sidewinder making your way to gunners run.  Pedal around gunners in an anticlockwise direction all the way around and straight up sticks and stones to the start/finish.  Dave our race director with his crew of set up vollies will be setting up the course from around 1pm on saturday so be sure to say hi to them.
