I will be blindly following the red or blue arrows around untill i get tired of the best singletrack around , if i dont get lost .....
And all going well scoot off to Stromlo for a hot lap of the Std XC Course ( well not that hot at 45-47 min night laps for me ) If there is anyone here to keep me company i could be convinced to explore some more but as the place feels to me like Wolf Creek at night, on my own i only have the courage to bolt around one time

I do have to work the next day but am planning to run around Bermagui MTB park the next night and all are welcome also

If you have always wanted to race Majura Pines and not have to do it for 24 hours solo,now is the time ! Round two of the Corc racing season and it is lots of fun , race hard but finish with a smile on your face . I usually find a nice cafe afterwards to contemplate the drive home ,and laugh at my abysmal performance in the race ..... ok not really but its heaps of fun all the same Give it a go .... you know you want to !! and the cold May Canberra weather will toughen you up !!!! You may even have to dodge the odd roo during the race as well

*** CANCELLED ***

This event has been cancelled as they couldn't get the defence force to allow race access to their land. Better luck next year! Sad

Entries open 20 February 2009.

This takes in all the Canberra tracks so it should be awesome!

In keeping with the AROC Sport reputation (think the awesome Angry Doctor course) there will be a huge amount of fantastic single track, well marked and groomed and making for a super fun and thrilling ride.
