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!


PACC host the upcoming National CX Round. Make sure you come out and help #makecrossweird – Photo compliments of TTK Photos.



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!

Mid year FatChat


Hold on to your socks ladies and gentlemen, the latest epsiode of FatChat has just popped in. After gallivanting around the northern reaches of the state and brushing into the NT, Chelsea returned and dedicated herself to producing this issue – after eating a tub of ice cream and socialising, etc.

What’s coming up? Well, a brief summary:

This weekend sees many of SAs CX riders head over to Canberra for rounds 5 & 6 of the national CX series – might not be as wet as here, but I’d wager it’s as cold! Good luck to everyone competing and I’m sure the SA crew will put in some strong results! I believe, but I’m not sure, that results will be posted on or around this page. At some point.

19th Jul – Next weekend sees the 3rd round of PACCs CX series somewhere in the parklands of Adelaide. Make sure you come along and see if you can top Andrew and Davids efforts on noise production and entertainment for the Elite grades! Click here for more info

26th Jul- The following weekend sees the 2nd Round of the GESA series head up to Eagle MTB Park with 6 stages planned for the elites, this should be a true test of the “enduro” part of GESA! For more info head over to the GESA website – click here

2nd Aug – Then we get to the first round of the Giant Adelaide XCO series which follows on from GESA at Eagle MTB Park. Eagle has always been a great race track and with its locality to Adelaide is a brilliant chance to get involved in the XCO scene. Grades for everyone! Check out the links below for more info!
