Our next race is scheduled for Blores Hill on Sunday 6th November. This is a very special club event as the club has teamed up with Greg Kaska to make it a fundraising event for Motor Neuron Disease. All profits from the race will be donated directly back to the Greg who will combine the race takings to his fundraising efforts. Last year he raised over $4000 to fight this terrible disease. We are hoping with the clubs involvement, we will be able to knock that figure out of the park!
The course itself will be beginner friendly, but the 4 hour time frame will provide a significant challenge to those who able to ride at pace for that period of time. We are hoping that club members will bring along a friend that has wanted to try mountain biking as the course will be flatish without the complexity of the trig.
The event is open to both members and non-club members in the following categories –
- Male Solo
- Female Solo
- Junior Solo

The Mt Taylor cross country track had a successful working bee to prepare the track for the upcoming event.
The 7 people involved in the working bee did a fantastic job, they all hooked in and got through the length of the track in time to take a ride on it and some tried out the All Mountain track.
LOTS of thanks and appreciation to those involved.
