Mt Stromlo

Stromlo Baby - The forecast said a wet weekend, but the Trail Gods made good!

This is a compilation of my 1st and 2nd runs on Skyline, Luge, Western Wedgetail, Pork Barrel and Double Dissolution. I'd ridden Western Wedgetail, Skyline and Luge once before but it was just a cruise down behind the boy. This weekend I was out on my own at full pace.

Pork Barrel was amazing! And Double Dissolution was a heap of fun, popping off all the jumps.

Loved it !! My new favourite place to ride.

Anyone have advice on which tracks that should not be missed at Mt Stromlo? Any nice combinations of tracks? Or other things to keep in mind?

I've never been riding there before, but will be going to Canberra Sunday and Monday and don't want to waste my time so was hoping for some good advice! Thanks

Frank

Great fun

We surprised ourselves coming 3rd in the "very prestigious" Male 6s 40+ category. For 3 of the guys on our team it was their first MTB event ever.

Everyone rode well with smooth transitions, consistent lap times and no flats or mechanicals.

Just received this media release from some mates. Sounds fun!

Craving Capital Punishment?

5 January 2009

By now, all mountain bikers in the country would have heard of - or ridden for the lucky ones - Mt Stromlo, host of the 2008 UCI World Cup and the 2009 UCI World Championships! Chances are Majura Pines also rings a bell as the headquarters for the Mont 24Hour MTB event. Finally, Canberrean riders at least would know of these other local gems that are Sparrow Hill and Bruce Ridge...
