Next women’s Mtb ride is set for Saturday 11th of July, followed by a ‘chix only’ race on the Sunday on the same course. The plan is for us to ride the course on the Saturday and then hopefully some of you will be keen to race the next day. I have put the details for the race below, but basically we can have the track to ourselves for the chix race, so no stress about faster riders on the track at the same time. It will be fantastic if we can get a good number to race on the Sunday, but if you just want to come along on the Saturday to ride the course and learn some skills, that’s ok.
When: Saturday 11th July
Where: Harakaway scout camp, 138 Chadwick rd, Harkaway melways 210 B7
What: mtb bike with knobby tyres, no panier racks on bikes
Cost Saturday: mtba members free, $5- for non members,
Sunday: $20 to race, $15 for day race license for non mtba members.
Email me if you plan on attending, just so I know how many people will be there, email@example.com
Winter Series # 2 – Harkaway “heads up”
The FTF committee was once again hard at work yesterday ‘scouting’ out the Harkaway course that we made last year. The course is in perfect condition and ready to race.
Just to give everyone a bit of a heads up, the race format is not your traditional XC race course consisting of a 5-6km loop, instead the “short and intense” loop is around 2km long. It’s not overly technical, but it will certainly be a close race. So please expect a few short sharp climbs. A perfect MTB loop!
So since the course is so short, there will be only one class racing at a time. The actual race time won’t go for that long (around 20min or so depending on the weather). So after each class has done their 1st race for the day, the 2nd and final race will be in reverse direction. It will be like racing on two different courses on the same day. We’ll then add the scores up for your two races to determine the eventual winner. While your class is not racing, you’ll be able to watch the other classes, what a perfect atmosphere.
