Hey,

I am new to the site, new to Perth in fact and have just decided to get back into some mountain biking after being out of it for a year or so. I have just put a Giant Talon 4 on lay away. Unfortunately these only come with some Santour XCT forks and I am hoping to get myself some new ones to put on when I pick up my bike in the next few weeks!

Merida X-Fusion 6Hr Enduro

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Our good friend Duncan at DIY MTB / X-Fusion has put together a six hour enduro. The race will be run on one of the sweet 'SCUM' xc tracks near Nowra. It is flowing single track with just enough fire trail added in to aid passing. It will probably follow a simillar format to the WWS. Deb and I have signed up and are looking forward to it.
Here is a link to the website. http://www.diymtb.com.au/6hour/

If someone could help me post it in the Ride Calendar / Race pages it would be appreciated.
