2017 99Bikes Dingo Races

Update 18/10/2017: postponed until 4-5th November 2017 due to rain

If you enjoy two legged transportation as much as two wheeled then the Dingo Duo might be your kind of event. You can choose from events that are MTB only, Run only, or both. Various distances and categories available. The event is held out at Hiddenvale so if you haven’t been along to the CycleEpic or one of the camping trips out that way this is another good opportunity to ride the new trails they’ve been building over the past couple of years.

It’s on next weekend – 21st – 22nd October 2017 so you’ll have to register quickly.

The ’99 Bikes Dingo Weekend’ provides fun and entertainment for the whole family. Event options include; RIDE only (Dingo Howl), RUN only (Dingo Dash) TEAM challenge sharing the Run-Ride-Run disciplines of the Dingo Duo or tackle the full DUATHLON – SOLO.
There’s now also the Dingo Duo Intro and even an event just for the KIDS Run-Ride (Pup Dash) and on the Sunday the Dingo ENDURO using new trails and a format that differs to others – with all these Events inc Wildlife Show it’s going to be another event to remember!

Congratulations to Boaz Clark for coming 5th in the Queensland XCO State Titles at Rowallan Park, Mackay, hosted by the M.A.D Mountain Bike Club. Also congrats to my mate Tim Fleming for coming 6th just behind Boaz. Results: http://my2.raceresult.com/83439/?lang=en

Word is that the event was a success by all accounts and the course was liked by most if not all the participants. Well done MAD and fantastic effort in general by all our far north Queensland MTB clubs for making mountain biking in the far north what it is today.

Bushrangers 3HR Endurance Race Summary 2017
Thanks to all the riders who came to the inaugural 3hr Endurance Race

So after a couple of months of stressing and guessing, planning and cramming we successfully held an XC-style race event with our new race equipment and from all reports everyone was happy!

Excuse the lengthy write-up but a lot happened on the day.

Day before Race Day

‘Bumping in’ began the day before the race with the cleaning and creation of trails, setting up the timing marquee and track bunting. By around 4:30pm everything was ready to go with only a few things left to do on the day.
