BMORC 6 + 6 male 3's 4th place

Just a few quick points from the weekends race;
- Team BMORC re-grouped for the first time in 12 months, around the anniversary of one member nearly dying in a car accident.
- I got sick on the Thursday before the race and struggled all weekend but still managed some OK times. I popped a Sudafed each day so I guess I'm a drug cheat according to the new banned list.
- The solo 24 riders were sent off first which made our opening lap interesting to say the least - at least I got to chat to Gazza most of the way around.

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.

When: 
Saturday, 31 August, 2013 - 09:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Winmalee
Meeting Point: 

End of White Cross Rd, Winmalee, NSW. There's a small parking area here but it's a standard suburban street so overflow isn't a problem.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

Ian and I are heading around the Winmalee loop on Sat. morning. Bees nest and Grose point are on the agenda. Will adjust speed of ride to whoever shows up. I'm still recovering from a broken wrist so I can't push too hard.
32 degrees for Saturday, so an early morning ride is preferable.

Coondoo Choc Foot 7hr

Round 2 of the Chocolate Foot series was delayed by a couple of months due to the bad weather but the time had come to ride Coondoo Road single track again.
Team BMORC were coming off a good 2nd place result in round one in a pretty thin field and we knew competition would be much tougher in Nowra. Unfortunately, Paul managed to break his wrist and we needed to find a replacement rider. Cue Mr Pidgeon who performed very well in his first short lap race and allowed us to stay in our category to go for an overall result in the series.

  • BMORC supported the council paper that went to council 16/03/2010 which recommended the closure and rehabilitation of Nichols Parade downhill trail. This is in the council records.
  • BMORC supported the formalisation of Old Bathurst Road trails to a sustainable internationally recognised standard
  • It is not illegal to ride on a track located on council land unless sign posted otherwise by council.

I've still been experimenting with the software from time to time and created this wallpaper. I have also uploaded a High res logo for those that need it.
