newbie

Hi everyone,

Just back to MTB after a lot of years, as yet i haven't explored glenrock much. Can anyone suggest a loop to start out on? Cheers

Quick point form review;
- Different track to last year with the removal of all but the start fireroad and primarily single track.
- Passing through the single track was fairly tough but after the rain the previous night, the track was quite grippy.
- The nature of the track suited a more skilled rider, rather than a powerhouse.
- The last run into transition was super fun.
- I didn't stack it this year.
- Hooked up with 3 blokes I'd never raced with before.
- We came 3rd in cat and overall.
- I got soaked in my swag from the rain that started after the race.
- Good times.

So,

I got on a bike 4 months ago knowing nothing of the sport or anyone in my group of friends and acquaintances who rides. I basically wanted to drop kegs and get fit and was very quickly surprised how much I thoroughly enjoy getting out for a ride when work and family allowed it.

My inner competitive streak was tweaked when I realised how much racing has a part to play in all this, and so I had been looking for a pathway into racing that wasn't going to flog me, whilst still allowing me an opportunity to get a taste of racing.

Being a smaller race with a couple of big climbs, I figured this race might be my chance to get somewhere near the podium - something I've never done. I looked up last year's results and the winning time for my age group was about 2:20. So I had my target - to be under 2:30, and as close as possible to 2:20.

Mild Start, Wild Finish!

Some races have been just a matter of an individuals having good bike handling, pacing and fitness in order to do well. Others have had the whereabouts of other riders - being able to work with and against them - as the critical factor to what determines who stands on the podium at the the end.
The WWR was the latter.

HSC Design and Technology Project

Hi, my name is Sam and I am currently in Yr. 12 studying HSC Design and Technology and for my project I created a video and a handbook to assist people Mountain biking in Glenrock Reserve. The aim of the video is to allow riders to experience a first hand perspective of the trails and even plan their next ride based on the trails they have just seen in the video. If you want to see what i have come up with just visit the link.
If you find time to watch it could you please comment your feedback, as I would be interested in knowing what you think. Thanks.
