July wrap up

Another awesome race was held last weekend at Craigburn Farm, with fantastic winter conditions perfect for XCO racing. We had our first E-bike participant in our new E-bike category, who reported high levels of enjoyment! Our next race is at Shepherd’s Hill on the 25th August, stay tuned for more info.

There’s alot going on around the scenes for MtB’ers right now. Take a look below

Energy Bars made right! – Hammer Nutrition

Unfortunately, the majority of Energy bars are nothing more than glorified muesli bars made with a mass of unhealthy ingredients (i.e.brown rice syrup – sugar) that do little if anything to improve your performance. At long last, we now have a complete range of new Australian made Hammer bars,that not only taste great but are healthy for you. We want you to enjoy the delicious new range of raw bars and see the difference.

Big Bike Film Night!

The programme offers a wide and dynamic variety of appealing storylines, projects and thrills not only for bike fans, but also all movie goers. At the heart of this collection is showing real people on ordinary bikes being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories. In the lineup is the riveting Australian documentary LOWEST TO HIGHEST which follows five friends with disabilities attempting a world first human powered ride from Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre 2150km to Mount Kosciuszko, IT IS A MUST SEE!!
