XC Round 4 Awaba - Club Champs

Well I feel sorry for all the people who thought the weather was too bad for racing at Awaba. The weather was pretty bad in Newcastle all morning, but the sun was out and the track was dry, fast and fun at Awaba. One small shower of rain at the end wasn't even enough to dampen your T-shirt.

Posted here are the results of today's race, which also includes some non-club members who we welcome to all our races.

Edit 19/6/17:
The list of XC Club Champions is now attached. Congratulations to all our competitors.

Thanks to all the helpers that made it possible especially Jason who did the computer timing and the St John ladies who recorded the rider numbers as they came through.

Also, big thanks to all the helpers who worked on the track to allow us to use the tunnel track in two directions.

It was nice to see a number of new faces, especially the young guys who did so well in D grade.

The three hour race was run and won today at Awaba. A good track was set for the event, with close to 10km of excellent dry single track, a little bit of fire road with a few large puddles to negotiate and some new bits to link it all up. Thanks again to Dean for setting the track.

Big thanks also to Andrew and the rest of the people who helped out with the timekeeping.

Somebody left a pair of Blue Nike shoes in the carpark (fairly small size). If these are yours, drop me an email (hmbaxc@gmail.com) and I'll try to get them to you.

A smaller than usual group for today's XC race at Awaba - 39 riders in total. No doubt due to the many other events on this weekend. Nevertheless, thos who turned up enjoyed a fun 6km track which had a few technical climbs to test the skills and plenty of singletrack to enjoy.

Thanks again to Dallas and Paula for running the kids ride prior to the XC race. And thanks to the volunteers who set the track and ran the timekeeping.

Downhill Club Feb 14th Results

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Sunday Club Downhill 14th Feb
Racing at Awaba Half Track “Monkey”
With last January round cancelled due to yes again rain, we found Sunday a taxing Hot and Sweaty 38, giving us dry, dusty, skatie track, but Monkey even at halftrack didn’t disappoint.
The track talk buzz “what was the fastest time over the top half”, “Aim for 2 or under 2min”
Searching old results back to 2011 found Jack Moir 2012 did a 2:09:42. Interesting when our fastest times over a full track is 3.37 to 3.40

Congates Class winners
A grade - Joshua Clark 2:13.46 fastest of the day after two runs
