Hey Folks,

We are having a race in early July (details being finalised and sent out soon) but some people have asked for a chance to check out the trails before hand. Paul has opened up his trails this Saturday morning so head up to beautiful West Woombye and have a look.

  • Start time is 8am 26/05/2018
  • Location is 32 Ruwoldts Rd, Dulong QLD 4560
  • Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/6FKskjCDukw
  • MTBA members only for insurance reasons.
  • Note with parking – either park at the top near the gate or if you want to park alongside the driveway, come all the way to the bottom and do a u-turn first so you can park facing the other way.
  • Bring your own water and food (Fridge available)
  • No toilets

See you there!

Weekend Rides Summary – 28-29/04/2018

Weekend Rides Summary – 28-29/04/2018
Cooloolabin Dam

It was a busy weekend just past with our members heading all over the place to compete in races, to camp and ride at the Hidden vale trails and ride on our Cooloolabin club ride and the rookie ride at Parklands.

The Rookie ride was at Parklands on Saturday morning and went pretty well with 11 riders and a couple new faces, no injuries and everyone having fun. The trails have finally dried out too. We went through the green loop, had a crack at the new blue flow trail then we went over the new Road Rage stuff and then around the Gumby Loop.

The club ride at Cooloolabin was a 2-part event with most of the group leaving from Yandina and climbing up the Bottle and Glass fire road then meeting the 2nd group at the Cooloolabin dam spillway. We had 16 riders this day with Jen being the only lady who accidentally started at Yandina but made it the whole way like a champion! Still a bit of mud around the dam but it was easily dodged. Great weather, good company, good ride! Thanks everyone.

There was a combined Bushranger/CORCA camping trip down to Hidden Vale which apparently was a lot of fun and well attended.

Congrats to Pete Bigaila, Chad Powers and Nikita Vandeleur and everyone else who rode in last weekend’s races at Glenview, Garapine and Townsville.

What a great weekend!

Congratulations to Shelly – No 1 Wild West Series Rd 6

Congratulations to Shelly – No 1 Wild West Series Rd 6

Congratulations to Shelly for her podium at the Wild West XCO series round 6 at Wooloon! She’s been training hard and racing well and she may have had a doubt we certainly didn’t.

The Walloon course is tight and twisty with obstacles and long gradual descents and climbs, it’s hard to go fast and you have to time the overtaking to make best use of the short sprints.

Organised by JR’s Gym and Bike the Wild West XCO series consists of 6 rounds over the summer, west of Brisbane. For more information checkout the series’ Facebook Page.
