HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who rolled up (and hung around) to help out with this race. We had a really good turn out.

Tim Loft has put up hit collection of photos on Facebook. Check out his page here.

Clinton Halliday – Clintpix – has some photos as well. Check out clintpix.com.

Eric Stack snapped up a few happies. Check out the dropbox here.

Michael Cole dropped the finger with some high fps shots – PhotoBucket

Make sure you check with the photographer for any use – especially if it involves commercial use.

The next race is the State Champs at Fox Creek on 16th Nov 2014. Entries will open Tuesday 21st Oct at 09:00am and the website will be updated very soon. For this race we revert to MTBA age categories. To accommodate for this we’ll be issuing fresh plates.

We’ll also be doing a race plate muster/collection so bring any and all race plates you have back so we can do a  stock take.

If you’re interested in learning how to time keep at races please email timing@ambc.asn.au for more info. We are looking to build up a small team of time keepers who can share the load of races and enable time keepers to race as well.

Giant XCO Round 3 – Cobbler Creek

Round 3 of the winter series is fast approaching. This round sees us move into Cobbler Creek. Cobbler Creek is a fast paced terrain – loose over hard packed – so we should some fast racing.

We require the following volunteers for this race

  • 4 x course marshals – we would prefer 8 so that we can rotate people. If you’re raceing the 1st run session and can hang around to marshal for the 2nd run, this would be ideal and vice versa for those of you racing 2nd run, if you can marshal for the 1st run that would be great

These course marshals are essential and the race will not go ahead if we cannot fulfil this requirement

  • 2 x people to cook the BBQ – near enough to essential because I hear the time keeper gets grumpy if he doesn’t get his feed…..
  • 2 x registration volunteers – to oversee handing out race packs and making sure people put a tick in the box to notify that they are here!
  • 2-4 people to help with course set up on the Saturday before the race (18th Oct)
  • 2-4 people to help with course pack up on the day after racing has concluded

If you can volunteer any time, please email racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au

Matthew Ackland – el Presidente – has scoped out the course and a map has been provided –
