It’s back! Darwin’s biggest mountain bike race.
When: Saturday 1 June
Race Start: 4:00
Where: Howard Springs Pine Forest (see map)
Difficulty: As fast as you want to go
This is it. The Cycle Zone three hour is DORC’s most popular event, a day/night race in the new Howard Springs Pine Forest.
The track is easy, and the riding is fun. If you haven’t done a DORC race before, this is the time to start, ride for 1, 2 or 3 hours. Ride as many, or as few laps as you like, or form a team to share the load.

We currently have a problem with the DORC forums. Like you can’t access them once you’ve become a member. Which is kind of counterproductive.
I’m having a look into it and will let you know when it’s working properly.
A lot of work goes on behind the scenes at an event. This is usually put in by a few dedicated volunteers.
This year, we are seeking to share the load for DORC.
Please consider helping out at an event.. more details following the link

From Tim Ellison.
46 at last weeks Friday Velodrome session. There’s a number of juniors on the doorstep of breaking the 1 minute barrier.
Maybe this week is the week that we get a wet and muddy course. Needless to say, the session will still be on, rain or no rain. Be early, get some practice and be ready to start at 6 pm. All finished by 7:30 pm but the course is open for ”free time” practice till 8 pm.
$2 lights fee.
We have a hose for washing bikes and riders before the trip home. Just bring spare clothes and a towel.
I need 6 time keepers to do the Hot Lap TT. If you can help, please let us know when registering your child.
