Round 4 of the Summer Series

Well, Summer is finally over, but we’re less than conventional – so what’s one more round before we get started on the serious stuff!

The final Summer Series round is on this weekend – Sunday 29 March. Racing for everyone to be had at Eagle MTB Park. Grades catering for all fitness levels from 2 through to 6+ laps!

Summer rounds are aimed to deliver short and fast racing with no prizes – just the glory of MTBing!

Registrations close at 10am Saturday 28 March – strictly no late entries. If you have any issues entering, send an email to timing@ambc.asn.au BEFORE cut off.

Results for Summer Series Ronud 3

Preliminary results are up!

Huge apologies to Will Golding who received a dud transponder and I failed to notice it. Unfortunately, no lap times for him. He took it like a gentleman and seemed pretty happy to simply be out on the bike!

If you notice any other discrepancies, shoot an email through to timing@ambc.asn.au and we’ll sort it out. Dispute window is until Wednesday 6pm.

Next race is on 29th March 2015. Entries are open, click on the link at the bottom of the post to go to registration. This race is at Eagle MTB Park. Should be doable on a CX bike* (shouldering and running/walking your bike is part of having a CX bike………….#init?)

*Eagle MTB Park is much more fun on a proper MTB. CX bike not actually recommended unless you love a real challenge or want to stick it to your mates!

Big thanks to Stu Clement for coming out and checking out the timing system. Great student and very attentive – A+ – would hire again! Phase 1 of “Let’s organise a timing team” has commenced!

Plenty of photos going around, check out the photos page for links!

Round 3 of the Summer Series

This weekend is fast approaching and with it our 3rd round of the summer series.

This round takes us to Park 23 just off Sir Donald Bradman Drive. The course will be CX friendly – I hope, as I’ll be mapping it out on my CX bike!

Looking for volunteers to help with:

  • course set-up around 8am on Sun morning
  • course pack-up at around “after the race o’clock”
  • sign on desk help – 1 or 2 people
  • 2 people to help Marshall the course (potentially)

Remember that all volunteers who commit prior to race day get a free, transferable race entry!

Once again we will be rolling with the “issue everything on the day” system for transponders and race plates. If you have a race plate, please bring it along so we can coerce you to give it back to us. We have cookies*

If you have any problems registering, please email timing@ambc.asn.au

Remember we no longer do late entries (after 10am Sat) or on the day registration. We do however, have a very lenient refund policy! So get on over and register!

*we don’t actually have cookies. Well, I might, but they’re mine. So tasty! Probably be gone by Sunday.
