Mt. Torrens, Melrose and MTBing!

AMBC+GiantThe second round of the Giant XCO series is fast approaching – 13th Sep. We spend a day at the Moores property re-establishing the trail that we’ve been delightfully lucky to access for the past few years.

John Allison will be clearing the track from 9am on Monday the 07th Sep. So if you’re eager to get a preview of the course and insider knowledge on every little rock across the top, then send an email to Bring some gloves and whatever gardening tools you have lying around – rakes, hoes, etc.

As always, volunteers will be required for on the day duties. If you know how to roll snags around on a warm plate, assist with last minute track set up and getting kudos for that one extra lap while you help pack up the course, then shoot an email to to let us know. Volunteers are rewarded with a free (transferable) race entry to all AMBC events, some food off the BBQ and a drink from the esky.

This weekend marks the inaugurally informal 6/18 Hours of Melrose. Over The Edge have been running this event for the past 4 years and is a unique enduro race that starts at midnight Friday to allow for a Satruday 6pm finish. This leaves participants fresh for a drive home on Sunday and ready for work on Monday!

Joel Tozer is looking for a member to complete a casual 18 hour duo and space available in accommodation at the North Star hotel. So if you’re “umming” and “ahhing” about “racing” then give him a call and get in on the fun – 0421 377 281.

Last minute entries will be available so long as you’re nice to the time keeper!


National round survey for club members


By now every club member – of AMBC – should have received an email with a short message and link to a a questionnaire about hosting a 2016 National round.

If you haven’t received this email, first check that your MTBA membership states you’re an AMBC member (you maybe Inside Line or PACC, etc.). If you are an AMBC member and haven’t received the email, and would like to complete the survey – 4 quick questions and a “tell us your dreams” section – then email and we’ll sort you out.

If you don’t provide your name, your response will not be counted as we are only including AMBC club members in the response – it is their club after all!

The survey will remain open until Friday 28th August.


Don’t forget that Over The Edge Melrose have the 18 Hours of Melrose fast approaching on 4th and 5th of September. Come and join the AMBC timekeeper and help him stay awake for the event as well as enjoying a great weekend away and an awesome event that leaves you fresh for work Monday!

The next round of the AMBC Giant XCO series is on 13th September at Mt. Torrens (Dazzle Land). This is a private property course, so is not available for riding at any other time – so make sure you take this opportunity to get on the trails!
