Ben Harris representin'!

Hi Folks,

The Fraser Coast lads came down and did well… really well!

The Cystic Fibrosis Charity Race Day has successfully concluded and it would seem everyone really enjoyed themselves. Photos and an event write-up will be uploaded by the end of the week but for now here are the race results. Congratulations to Jamie Cardiff (2hr winner), Chris Bond (1hr race winner) and Kara Reading (Fastest Female) and also best crash prize winner Jason Taylor. A great big thanks to all racers, spectators and our volunteers. And another big thanks to Paul and Trish Vandeleur for hosting us on their beautiful land.

Here are the results:

And a big kudos to our sponsors Beerwah Cycles, Brouhaha Brewery, EnPlusOne, Giant Sunshine Coast, Hit Bikes, Mountain Bike Australia, Palmwoods Physiotherapy, Peter Legge Photography, Subway GlenviewVenture Cycles and Vivelo Sports.

Bushrangers Cystic Fibrosis Charity Race Day – 15/07/2018
New date - see you on the 15/07/2018

Put your racing legs on!

OK Folks! We’ve picked a new date and made a few changes.

  • First race is a 1-hour endurance race for people wanting to give racing a try for the first time. Open to all (ages 12+). It will be an MTBA “Come ‘n’ Try” event so all racers get free race insurance!
  • Second race is a harder 2-hour endurance race. Rider who gets the most laps in the 2 hours wins! MTBA Race membership (or day licence) is necessary.
  • We’ve removed the e-bike race altogether. We’ll gauge interest and look into a dedicated race for them later.

Here are the details

We are having a charity race day at Paul’s Place on Sunday 15/07/2018 to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland.

  • Cost: $30.00 for the day (plus MTBA race day license if required)
  • Where: Paul’s Place (32 Ruwoldts Road Dulong)
  • When: Sunday 15th July 2018 – first race starts at 8:30am
  • What: 1-Hour Race (MTBA Come’n’try event, 12yo+, free insurance) / 2-Hour Race
  • Who: Everyone! (need a mountain bike and helmet though)

Race Day Update – POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN

Race Day Update – POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN
Race day has been postponed folks

In a desperate attempt to stop the rain, last night I tried Grandma’s ye olde pagan MTB ritual at Parklands. Now obviously, as today’s weather indicates, I stuffed up. I went through and checked each step again and again and then I realised that the full moon is tonight!! IDIOT!! I can’t believe I made such a simple mistake! My hamstrings are killing me from all that twerking!

But long story short – the race day is postponed until things get dry again. Stay tuned!

PS: Sorry to that guy on a night ride and everyone watch out for a dead goat near Tazer trail.

Grandma’s Ye Olde pagan recipe cards are so handy

Good morning folks!

So far Paul’s place has dodged any serious rain so things are still moving ahead on that front (LOL! – weather pun!). Paul will keep us up to date and we’ll see how things are later in the week.

Bushranger Peter Legge has generously offered to take the photos for us this time around. We will upload them after the race for you to grab for free. If you want to pay for a bigger picture to be printed (maybe for the ceiling above your bed or something) I’m sure Peter can help you out. Check out Peter’s work at http://www.instagram.com/peterleggephoto/

Registrations are still open at https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=5669

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!
