Massive thanks to all the volunteers who rolled up to help out.

Big mention to Richard Bates who stopped to assist another rider – your 5 minute bonus has been applied – looks like you lost a few more considering your lap times!

The next race is a twilight race and you will need lights for it:

  • Front light – white, must be able to see the trail with it
  • Rear light – red light, solid illumination (no-flash – it’s distracting).

We’ll be starting just before sunset and racing through so you can watch the sunset at threshold heart rate. Being held at O’Halloran Hill, it should provide for some spectacular views.

Entry to the race location is off Majors Rd, opposite the fire station (ish):

Summer Race 2 at Eagle

The second summer race at Eagle MTB Park is coming up this sunday.  If you haven’t entered then get entering and tell your mates to enter too.  Online entries will close on Saturday at 10am – click here to enter  If you’re not sure what category to race in then check out our summer race page for an idea of what to expect.

Racing will start at 9am with sign on opening earlier.  You’ll be able to drive in to the venue so bring your cheer squad with you.  The race lap is short and sweet and similar to what we have used previously. Should be about 10 minutes for A grade*.

* May or may not be 10 minutes. No A graders have pre-ridden the lap to provide this feedback

Allocated transponders from the higher end to make sure all of them worked, and some didn’t. So if you’re times are a bit skewed that could be why. If you think I’ve short changed you some sheep from your sheep station because of this, let me know – timing@ambc.asn.au – and we’ll discuss the current value of ewes’.

Thanks to all the volunteers who assisted with setting up and packing down of the HQ and course.

Next race is at Eagle MTB Park and entries are open, check the links below.

We’re already looking at moving the start time forward to 09:00am again to beat the heat and be finished nice ‘n’ early in order to hit the beach sooner. Stay tuned for more information and confirmation of start times (now that I’ve mentioned it, it’ll rain).

Start list and course modification

Start list for tomorrows Summer series race is available here

Due to a technical glitch the registration system didn’t catch In Case of Emergency details. All competitors will be required to provide these details at sign on. Please be prepared as we won’t issue race plates or transponders until these details are received.

After consultation and consideration the course has been modified. Instead of heading down DH3, the course will now be heading down DH1 – a less technical course that is more suitable to the summer series format, i.e. all grades on course at the same time.

Volunteers for tomorrow – if you can volunteer tomorrow to help with:

  1. Registration – help make sure people get the right race plate and transponder
  2. Course set up – starting bright and early at 06:30am
  3. Course pack up – it’s only one more lap…..
  4. Gate Commander – we need someone on the gate to ensure that it is closed after each vehicle enters.

Email racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au and let them know.

The core setup group will be on site from 06:30am with registration opening at 08:15am and race start at 09:00am. Racing should be concluded by 10:30am at the latest and everyone should be out of the gate by 11:00am. Make sure you’re out before the timing van leaves otherwise you’ll have to ring the park rangers to come and let you out and they’re at least an expensive carton of fine import beer in value.

See you all tomorrow!
