About 50m on the left there's a turning where you can park in the shade. There's also an old concrete section of the highway just past there with masses of parking.

Ok the 8hr festival weekend

Saturday will see the very first 8hrs of DH. 3 short, gentle DH tracks, Teams of three one rider on each track start together.

Each rider will be given the opportunity of at least 2 timed runs on each track. Entries are capped so there should be time at the end to try and improve a bad run.

The best 2 runs of each rider on each track will be added into the teams total, lowest total time wins.

In lieu of the postponed Mini DW another plan is here...

Lisdale State Forest. XC track, plus some exploration of the stuff south of the highway. Word is there's loads of sniggle in there. Looking at a map there's plenty of fire trail at least, so we can ride that for some Ks then cross to the XC circuit for some fun later.

Forecast at this point is cold (literally freezing early on), but sunny later. Max 12C, so bring your layers.
