PMBC and Avanti Plus Cannington – State XCO Round 4

May 22, 2012 in Mountain Bike

We are now well and truly into the XCO racing calendar, but don’t stress this is a great beginners course. The perfect opportunity to dip your toe in the water and give MTB racing a go. With minimal elevation this track is designed to be fast and fun. With recent trail maintenance and some minor upgrades, this race will be a lot of fun for new and seasoned riders. Get on board and come give it a go. Hope to see some of you there representing SPR.

Enter off “Freemans Road” (not Bandicoots road).
REMEMBER THERE IS NO PARKING ON FREEMANS ROAD, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
The race is NOT based out of the Marrinup camp ground as it previously has been.
Race parking is on the old Golf course.
Race village, registration and start/finish are all based off the golf course.
2 toilets will be on site on the golf course so you won’t have to go back to the camp grounds.

A massive thankyou to DEC and the Murray Districts Carriage Driving Club (horse and carriage that is) for allowing us to use this area.

PMBC Presents Barry’s Block – Cycletrek Mountain Biking State XCO Round 3

May 8, 2012 in Mountain Bike

With the 1st two races of the season out of the way we are almost reaching mid season, but don’t stress there is still a chance for you to race and get amongst the points. So get out there and show the club colours.

For those who have raced here before there have been a few changes to previous races. There are 4 new sections of trail, with an additional overtaking (fire road) section. The start/finish has been relocated to our camp ground area, all races will have 1 short lap in the respective race.The race track has been extended to around 6.4k, but still incorporating the tight single track, rock gardens and not forgetting ” over the edge” with an additional jump. It will be a challenge for the 29ers. The track will be open all day for practice on the 12th (Sat),but if the desire is there, the track is open all the time (coopers pale ale or a good red is the bribe).

Parking arrangements are also a little different, it will be a lot easier if people parked further up the fenceline as the start/finish line will be easily accessible (500m walk) but signs will show you the way.

For forest hygiene purposes, if it has rained by then (hopefully), riders MUST ensure their bikes are clean (dont forget under saddle and bottom bracket).

MUDDY BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ENTRY TO THE PROPERTY.

PLEASE WASH YOU BIKE AS BEST AS YOU CAN AFTER PEMBERTON, WE WILL BE SUPPLYING A TROUGH WITH DISINFECTANT, PRIOR TO ENTERING THE FOREST, IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE THIS TO STOP THE SPREAD OF DIEBACK, THANK YOU.

The local store has closed down, so no food, grog or fuel is available. We will operate a mini cafe “the Coffee Rock Cafe”, supplying tea/ coffee / cool drinks / hot home made soup / muffins etc.
