Glorious weather and a ripper of a track were on offer today for all 51 riders that made the trip to Dungog for our rescheduled 3 hour race.
The climbs were steady but not steep – the rocks were plentiful and yellow – the riders were tired but happy – a massive thanks must go out to Allen Shrimpton and his Crew from MTB Dungog for maintaining this excellent facility and putting their local knowledge to use to design a race course that was genuinely fun.
And as always, thanks to Dean for track set-up (ably assisted by Tony Jumps Edwards?) and Preso Clint for timing, and Bronwyn (and her driver) for responding to the injured rider (a heavy fall on the shoulder down “The Snake” but most likely no fracture – except to the carbon handlebars – that will “bite” the wallet!).
We have attached a selection of images from today that show some riders getting into the spirit of the track – a full gallery will be put up in another post.
