3rd Rider wanted for 7hr at Glenrock

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

Hey all,

We're chasing a 3rd rider for the RockyTrail 7hr at Glenrock in a couple of weeks.

We'll be looking to go pretty quick and are looking for someone at a similar level, but also just there for fun and to have a good race. If you're keen to have a crack, let me know.

If we can't find anyone, we'll probably just stick with pairs and see how we go.

My Kowalski 100

Ok. So it wasn't my smartest decision. But it was my decision. To ride with a crappy chest infection whilst on all manner of "medicine", and completely against all medical advice. But such is the draw of the Kowalski.

My prep had been good, as was everyone else's on the team, but a family weekend away the weekend prior didn't see me finalising my training. What's worse is I returned with an URTI... Bugger. The best chance of riding well was to get as much rest as possible.

Races for kids?

Hey guys

Are their any clubs out there who run races for kids ?

I need to find some races for my 9yo to do. HE done the 20km race at the Husky100 at the weekend and was going really well in the lead group until the sign vandal got him seriously off course and had to wait for mum to catch up....

What is best first race to aim for?

Greetings,

New to the sport but rapidly becoming addicted to the point that, even though it's only very early days, I am keen to participate in an event in the foreseeable future.

My goal would only be to complete not compete, then working up distances over time.

I would welcome any advice or opinions on what events might be most suitable for a novice such as myself.

Thanks!

Endurance Info

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

I am currently training for my first solo 8 hour in November. I've been searching the net for a few months now trying to get some 'tips' for endurance events, but I'm not finding a lot of info. A small 3-part series by Mark Fenner has been handy for training.

Anyone know of any good mtb specific websites or books? 'Ed Rides Bikes' is a great read, but not a whole lot of inside knowledge.

What is The Kowalski Classic?

For nigh on two decades, local trail building legends Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the mysterious Kowalski Brothers have been hand-crafting trails in the ACT region. Thanks to their dirty work, Sparrow Hill and East Kowen Forest have become single track nirvana. The innuagural Kowalski Classic gives you the chance to race it all in one hit. Ride the Bird, then the Kow, then the Bird, then the Kow!

The Kowalski Classic is the ultimate single track enduro with two race distances taking in the very best trails in Sparrow Hill and East Kowen.

The Mont 24hr - Looking for a team

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

Hi,

My brother and I are looking to join a team for the Mont this year, we are 27 and 30 years old. Pretty keen riders, last year our lap times were around the 55-60min mark (hoping to go faster this year!). So if you need a couple of keen guys who are really good team members to join your team, let us know. We will pay for the entries! Shoot me an email at dtomesek@gmail.com

Cheers

Dom
