The final event before the AGM of 2014!! Where has the year gone?
The enduro stages will take place at the trails at Lee Point. Start and finish point will be 30 Oliver street Rapid Creek. Entry is $5.00 for members or $25.00 for non members (day licence included) REGISTRATION IS ONLINE ONLY AND WILL SHUT AT 10 AM ON THE DAY. CLICK HERE TO ENTER Sign on and number hand out will be from 300 pm to 330 pm. We will have a quick brief and then set off to the first stage as a group. There is a total of 6 stages. All are 98% downhill!! We will be using trails known as the Roller Coaster, The PlayGround, the 2 Downhill tracks and 2 new lines made up of existing tracks. The technical rating is quite high for this event so probably not suited for the beginner rider. However, beginners are more than welcome to come along on the ride and cheer on the competitors on the trails. A practice session will be held the week before so you can come and try the trails then.
Don”t feel like racing? Come along to the after party at 30 Oliver Street, Rapid Creek from 7 pm BBQ and swim. Bring your swimmers, a chair, some drinks and a plate of food to share. If you have any questions at all or would like to help out feel free to contact Kevin 0410249593
