We revert back to the “traditional” AMBC Enduro rules (as opposed to the 8 hour rules). This means any lap started before the cut off time (4 hours) and finished after still counts. A full read of the rules is available on the clubs website – click here – and remember that these rules compliment MTBAs rider etiquette rules and race rules (which you agree to abide to when you sign onto your license – day, trial or annual) SO BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER!

Prospect Hill Easter Sunday 8 Hour enduro

That’s right – Easter Sunday means you can be hunting eggs while riding your bike around MTB trails for 8 hours. Do it solo, in pairs or a team of 4 (“quad”).

Registration is available – click here

  • 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.

Massive thanks to all those who helped out, many hands make light work!

On track setup we had David Knight, Scott Denton and “Craig Hutchins and his trail fairies”, who managed rake out the spectator maze, muppet alley, and try hard “or the old school tracks” – made it much more followable at 180bpm!

Course pack up was completed by Tim Klein, James Irving and Scott Denton.

Registration (WHAT A LINE UP!) saw yours truly sneak out of the timing van and give an assist to Tiff How (first time racer), Chelsea Hooton, James Irving and Scott Denton.

Presentations and race brief given by Scott Keneally

On the BBQ we saw Libby Dowling, Beth Holland and Kevin Ackerman.

Lastly, a brave mention to David Braithwaite who managed to time his first (which is why I got to bugger off and make some noise on the track!).

Brilliant weather on a brilliant track! You can tell I got to race, because results are only getting up now!

Tim Klein and Co have uploaded “some” photos to Facebook – click here – to check them out.
