Autumn

The season of change. Bosom buddy to the maturing sun.... Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store.

What ever the hell that means.

Welcome to Round #1 one the 4 Seasons 3hr series.

Ah, the end of the quarter, BAS, quarterly tax, paper work... But it wasn't always so.

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?
When you rode because it felt good and the company you rode with and the tracks you rode were more important than having 1000 categories to choose from and a big list of swag to win.

Evocities MTB Series Orange - Ginja Ninja 300

When: 
Sunday, 5 February, 2017 - 09:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Kinross State Forest
Meeting Point: 

The city of Orange is around 4 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra. Kinross State Forest is situated on the northeast edge of town, a 10 minute drive or 20 minute ride from the Orange town centre.

Meet at the Bulgas Road carpark, Western edge of the forest.

Drive out from Orange on the Ophir Rd, before you reach the rubbish tip, turn right onto Bulgas Rd. Follow this about 2km to the forest (the road turns to gravel).

Note that the 'Directions there' google maps link below may not give the best route/destination. It seems that google maps ignores Bulgas Rd when selecting a route and gives the next closest spot. The 'Meeting point' link should be correct.

Event Cancelled
News just in, this morning after considerable deliberation and consultation amongst the large group that involves clubs, organisers, sponsors, councils , MTBA and other agencies we have decided to cancel this weekends race. Put simply, its too hot. We want the Evocities to deliver quality events, fun, and for riders to enjoy their weekends away; with a predicted 36' high temperature for Sunday we cant see how this is possible to achieve. This being the last race of the series and having already being postponed, now cancelled there will be further discussion amongst the stakeholders as to how the points and associated prizes will be distributed.

Thank you for understanding and your support through the last two years.
-------------------------
--------------------------

Date - Cancelled 2017 Feb 5th (postponed from Nov 27th)

When - Race start at 09:00, duration 5hrs.

Details - Now in its fifth year! The Ninja was the pioneer for big regional events and continues to offer a cracking time for all.

New for 2016 is Gravity, yes, that's right gravity. Inside the standard lap, riders will have two opportunities to exert their prowess on predominantly downhill sections. Its not super techy, its just for fun, if you always thought those skinny XC girls and boys couldn't handle themselves against your talent on the downhills then turn up, roll around the course until the gravity section and give it plenty. The new gravity class will be decided by cumulative time for the two sections. We think its awesome, you don't need to be a XC whippet to get some glory.

Expect another cracking Ninja loop, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, but a lot of fun on the descents.

Also new for 2016 and in conjunction with the Evocities we will have teams of three and we have stretched the duration to 5hrs (more fun!).

***Cancelled*** - see comments

This is a Cross Country MTB race on a 25km loop in Back Yamma State Forest. Formats for Beginners and Juniors (25km), Average Punters (50km, 2-3hrs) and Masochists (100km, 4-6hrs). The loop will be similar to the former Back Yamma Big Foot first lap. This is a club based event, so compared to the Big Foot, there won't be very much bling.
There are plenty of great camp sites at Back Yamma so feel free to camp the night before.
Toilets will be provided and a BBQ for lunch on Sunday but you should plan to bring all your own stuff.

remember the mini DH races we had in the pine forest? No
Well they were a lot of fun and we are bringing the formate back.

Short easier trails that make a good introduction to Downhill racing on less intimidating trails.

Most of These will take place along side our 3hr series which should brig both sides of the club back together but that means I will need help with timing and marshalling

There is no transport so push runs only but it's a short trail and entry will be $5

Spring

Spring has sprung. The grass has ris.
Rydal is where the action is

Welcome to Round #3 of the 4 Seasons 3hr series.

Ah, the end of the quarter, BAS, quarterly tax, paper work... But it wasn't always so.

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?
When you rode because it felt good and the company you rode with and the tracks you rode were more important than having 1000 categories to choose from and a big list of swag to choose from.

Well CTMBC are taking it back.

because every one is still keen we're meeting at the show ground as usual but doing a social ride instead of racing. Will probably do the 25km Sheepstation loop and maybe check out the work Gaz has been doing to.

Also we're going to start doing some Friday afternoon maintenance days through day light saving to so keep your eye on the calendar
