What a race! Plenty of competitors and plenty of club members getting out and having a crack and the trails over the 24 hours. Big thanks to Bike SA for putting on yet another marathon effort – both for the competitors and by the organizers!

Kevin Pullen coming away with the win in the solo 24 male with a god like effort of 32 laps.
Kate Penglase (Vic) taking out the solo 24 female with a convincing 26 laps – lovely to chat to on the ride as well.

If you want to check out the results they’re available from the Event Strategies results page – click here – plenty of number crunching fun to be had.

There’s some excellent photos up from Sam Bruce and Kaneophoto (Kane Naaraat). Please seek permission before using these photos. If you can, pitch in some dollars to help maintain their enthusiasm – camera gear is expensive! They both have avenues to purchase prints and/or high quality digital negatives.

Well done to everyone who had a go at the race. Especially the ones that were going at the solo 24 for the first time. Some great efforts from many.

Don’t forget the next race is at Prospect Hill on 31st May 2015. The 2nd round of the Hammer Nutrition 4 hour Enduro series. Everyone should be in prime shape after the Dirty Weekend!

Green Smoothie closure

Image  from Kaneophoto – check out his work, it’s rad –

Bike SA have been distributing information regarding Green Smoothie trail maintenance.

In short, Green Smoothie will be closed for two weeks starting today – 21 April.

Please respect this closure and stay off the trail while this work is under way. It will be beneficial in the long run.

Bike SA are also organizing some trail design/building lessons for volunteers, so if you’re interested in that, shoot an email to for more information.

Bike SA message:

Trail Closure at Cudlee Creek
Please be advised that the Green Smoothie trail at Cudlee Creek will be closed for upgrade work from Tuesday 21 April for a period of 2 weeks.
Following on from IMBA “trail guru” Joey Kline’s visit a few months ago, Bike SA has contracted an IMBA trail specialist to take this trail to the next level.
There will be heavy machinery on the trail and plenty of signage notifying riders of the closure – so please spread the word. NO RIDING!
Apologies for the inconvenience but we are sure the delays will be worth it!!
As part of our agreement with IMBA, we are providing some trail design/build opportunities for volunteers to come and learn the latest in international best practice. If you are keen to lend your hands on trail and learn from the best in the business, please email with you availabilities.
Bike SA acknowledges the great support of the Office for Recreation and Sport in funding this project.
