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.

Now in its fourth year, the Kowalski Classic is a one-day showcase of the famous trails in East Kowen Forest and Sparrow Hill. The event celebrates the achievements of local trail builders Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the mysterious Kowalski Brothers, who together have hand built over 100km of flowing trail in East Kowen (the Kow) & Sparrow Hill (the Bird).

Love single track? Then you will love the Kowalski Classic.

MTB skills trip to Canada

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

Every couple of years my coach organises a trip to Canada for XC riders who want to improve their technical skills. The idea is to ride DH bikes (can hire or buy over there) for a few weeks, travelling around to the main mtb/ski parks in Canada - Whistler, Sun Peaks, Panorama, Kicking Horse and Silver Star. This year there will also be some XC/AM riding thrown in to break up the DH riding. The trip will be from July 26th - 17th August, and we need another 4 people. So if you are keen, send me a message.
Cheers.

MTB Slick tyres

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

With all the rain was hanging for a ride so went to Centennial Park. I had my Nevegals on at off road pressure and got hosed by some roadies. This won't do. I managed an avg speed of 27.4kp/h over 5 laps - Roadies can get around at 35 kp/h I understand from websites but want to know has anyone got MTB Slick tyres and will it make a noticable difference to speed/rolling resistance for the price. Was thinking of going back with small block 8's I have and jack them up to 80psi and see if I can catch a Cervello or two.
Continental has a few slicks out anyone tried em - what width tyre is best?

Ok, who here ride's a Diamondback? Cause frankly, i just spent $700 on the Axis Disc. And yeah it's pretty good, it ride's the Manly Dam and Oxford Fall's trails pretty damn well. No it does not have knuckle box (damn), it's got front rst and carbon ceramic disc brakes. 24 speed Shimano gears. Truvativ x-flow crankset, the bottom bracket is pretty average. The seat's nice, the frames alloy. The quick release is handy, as it won't fit in my car any other way. So yeah, please post if you have a Diamondback, or for that matter if you are hopinh or planning to buy one.
