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.

Tick Tock! 2 days Until Race Time!
Who will win the coveted Certificate of WIN?

Click to download race map

Race day is in TWO days folks so I hope everyone is tapering off and carb loading – even the racers!

I’ve picked up the prize loot from Hit Bikes, Venture Cycles and EnPlusOne so I can start assembling the juicy prize buckets tonight. Ben is working on the music so expect an exciting, blood pumping mix of Slim Dusty classics and whale sounds.

Bushranger member and professional photographer David Harbutt has offered to bring out his camera kit and take some cool shots on the day. So you can all have some cool race photos to upload and tag with #eliteracer #yolo or whatever the kids say these days.

Remember that all the money we raise through these races will be used to create the new hand-cut XC marathon trail at Parklands. So even if you aren’t racing come along to watch, have a snag and throw some coins in the donation bucket.
