The crispness of winter was certainly felt on Sunday morning, with clear skies meaning that temperatures were in the single digits as the flock of Riders gathered to register for the June XC race out at the Awaba Mountain Bike Park.

The recent rains meant that the track conditions were almost perfect, and with only a light covering of surface dust everyone had plenty of grip on what was a fun and fairly flat course set by our XC coordinator (maybe racing the RT 4 hour the day before mellowed him???).

Despite some of our regular racers choosing to rest following the previous day at Glenrock we managed to gather a strong field of 72 Riders including plenty of new faces and some that were having their first taste of racing at Awaba. Congratulations go to Brian Dunkin and Laura Renshaw for taking out A Grade.

A big thank you also to everyone that made a donation for Beyond Blue – we still need to count all the coins but we do know that we raised over $120 – nice work HMBA Members!
