A fantastic event, numbers were down a little because we had been issued a storm warming with 100mm predicted for the day, we didn't get any rain until later in the afternoon and only received 10mm all up !
The tracks were in superb condition, no dust and were nicely bedded in with the 5mm from the day before.
Plenty of photos, if you want a full sized copy to print out, email me here.
Our first ever event is on here in Nymboida, we've been working hard with the Clarence Valley MTB Club to get this up and running. You can find the club info at this link on Facebook.
Our Winter XC Series begins at one of the most beautiful locations in the Clarence Valley, hard to beat for a great Mothers Day out. The trails are some of the best XC trails in the Clarence Valley . Our Club, working with Trevor and Toni, will be expanding the trails in Nymboida in the near future so keep an eye on our facebook page or their website. These are PRIVATE trails, so you need their permission to ride them.
