There’s nothing too technical but it will keep your attention, with new terrain and scenery every day. It’s achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and MTB skills.
At the end of each day kick back and enjoy the excellent food, local beers (or wine) and everything the Hunter Valley and Newcastle have to offer.
The Multisport Mecca magazine is out and full of all things sport and Sunshine Coast. There is an article about our recent race and check out the intro to the lads from the Cycle Zone Gravity team. Download the August issue now.
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.
