Unlike previous races, it wasn’t glorious weather that greeted riders for XC Round 9 at Awaba – instead a heavy shower just before the main race meant that damp and muddy conditions greeted riders for their first lap of a challenging track set by our XC Coordinator, Dean K.
Luckily things got progressively drier throughout the race for the 55 riders that showed up (and hung around after the rain!), with reports that by the end of the race the amount of grip through the corners was off the chart. Well done to our winners, and everyone that braved the conditions – see you in December for our final race of the year.
Of note, we almost “lost” a Rider during the pre-race briefing when a large dead branch fell from a tree in the main carpark area – a good reminder to all to be careful out in the bush following the recent weather – if you find any issues out on the trail please let us know via Facebook or send an email to the President at the below email address.
