A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Advice for new XC forks

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!

In Orange 17-19 of January

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

Hi All,

I'll be in Orange for a long weekend from the 17-19 of January. Sounds like there is some great XC riding around Orange and I should bring my bike along.

Anybody local up for some rides Friday, Saturday and/ or Sunday morning? I can try to find my way around with GPS, but I guess it would be much nicer (and saver) with somebody local to show me the trails.

Please let me know.

Cheers,
Volker

1st place BMORC, Welby 7hr

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Round 4 of the SRAM Singletrack mind series was held at Welby in the Southern Highlands.

Having raced at Welby last year, I knew what I was in for; not huge amounts of climbing but technical pinchy climbs that really sap the legs. Getting flow and holding momentum is really hard at Welby. In saying that, it is a really fun track to ride around - perfect place for a social ride to take on your mates.

On Saturday afternoon Craig and myself headed out for a couple of recce laps. The course was dry, dusty and loose. It was fun to ride around but would prove to be a tough racetrack.

3rd place for BMORC - Awaba 7hr

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

For some reason I can't link to the original calendar entry through BMORC but below relates to this race; http://nobmob.com/node/42470

Round 3 of the Singletrack Mind series was back at Awaba. Awaba is a really fun track to ride and pretty fun to race on too.
Craig and I headed up on Saturday and got in a couple of recce laps - luckily we did; Camel Back was bunted off, forcing you up Straw. There was also a new section of track not long after that was loose, off-camber and quite technical. Great for riding, not so good for racing with people of differing abilities around.

July's race is a Time Trial format (designed to be similar to a roadies time trial, except every rider gets up to 3 shots, not consecutive but rotational. It'll be on the smaller yellow loop (3.5km) with distances signposted and plenty of time to recover so should see some very fast times.

Rego from 9, racing from 1030.
