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!

Dungog Common Gallery

Dungog Common is a MTB area next to the township of Dungog that comprises 650 acres and currently about 30 Km of MTB single track mostly blue and some black. I would call it a hard XC track or AM track. Ideal for Gravity Enduro.
We are working on new tracks and extensions all the time and you can expect another 10 Km within the next couple of months.

3rd place for BMORC - Awaba 7hr

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.

Still learning

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

This year is a huge learning curve for me. I still have to slow down a little at the start and pace myself.

Started off in 3rd at the end of the first lap & then slowly dropped to 7th. I felt terrible during the 2nd lap. Slow down Chris!

Going for a fun Sunday ride is one thing, the psychology of racing is entirely new to me. Always amazing to see the A graders race. Also amazing to finish a ride with a clean bike!
