  • Light requirements:
    • Lights will be required for any competitor starting a lap after 17:30.
    • Defining a light? You must have:
      • One red rear and one white front light.
      • The rear light should be on solid and does not need to blind people 50km away enjoying the sofa at home.
      • The front light should be bright enough for you to feel comfortable riding through a pine forest at night. If it can blind the person 50km away enjoying the sofa I suppose we’ll get one more angry spectator!
    • Don’t have lights? Ask around – you never know who might have some spare sets laying around.

Juniors – if you’re looking to join a team then get in contact with the Junior Coordinators – juniors@ambc.asn.au – and get chatting. A breakdown of the Junior categories:

  • Solo Juniors, full course – must be 16 years of age in 2017 – born in 2001 and before;
  • U15 teams teams of 4, full course – born in 2003 & 2004;
  • U13 teams teams of 4 – born in 2005 & 2006 – racing on a short course (aprox. 4-5kms) for 4 hours.

There is also an option to register individual juniors and be teamed up on the day. If you are choosing this option please notify juniors@ambc.asn.au so that we can be prepared on the day. Select the option “Junior individual team entry” when registering.

Hammer Nutrition 4 hr – Round 2

enduro 2015 poster horizontalThe next Hammer Nutrition 4 hour enduro is approaching – Sun 31st May.

Entries are open and available by clicking here. Links are also available on the Calendar page along with the rest of the AMBC MTB season. Registration will close at 10:am on Saturday 30th May. If you are struggling to get to an electronic device to register in the next week send a quick email (ironic?) to timing@ambc.asn.au or call the club phone.

The next round is set to be held at Prospect Hill – directions available here.

If you’re interested in lending a hand to your club on the day of the race, then let racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au know in advance so we can plan for it.

Free BBQ, drink, and transferable race entry for all volunteers.

We’re looking for people to help out with:

  • Track set up. This will occur from 09:30am Saturday 30th May. Contact racedirector@ambc.asn.au to register your interest.
  • Track pack up. Crucial. Unfortunately the arrows don’t decompose and we have to go around pick them all up. We’ve got scientists working on it, but for now it takes good old fashioned humans to go around and pick up the bunting/arrows.
  • Holding down the registration desk. The wind can be a bugger and the more people we have holding onto the paper the more people can sign on to the race and receive their race plate and transponder.

On a seperate note (or two):

  1. The elite winter series table has been formed and is available on the results page.
  2. Chelsea has managed to print off another Fat Chat. Not sure where she found the time in the last four weeks, but it’s another cracker:
