Summer Series Round 2

Summer Series Round 2 will be held at Eagle MTB Park on Sunday. The weather forecast is looking great and the course will be a fun, fast, flowing loop suitable for riders of all capabilities.

The start/finish area will be located at the top of Eagle (Hawk Hill) near the toilet block. Parking will also be up the top so follow the road all the way up to the start/finish area. Parking space is limited so please park carefully and leave space for others.

Don’t forget to register for the race by 10am Saturday morning. There will be no late entries.

Race sign-on will be open from 9am and race start is at 10am for all grades.

If you’re available to help out with parking at the top and at the road crossing near the top of the downhill track please email racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au to register your availability.

There will be no BBQ at any of the summer series races, but the club will have some drinks on ice for a gold coin donation.
