TP180 MTB Endurance Race – Online Entries at ENTRYZONE

Location: Thunder Point Trotting Track (McDonald St Warrnambool)
Date: Saturday 18th January 2014
Entry: Online at ENTRYZONE, close on 15th of January 2013.

Held for the first time in January 2012, this race in Warrnambool proved popular with local riders, national race teams and tourists in town for their summer holiday. This wide cross section of the riding community is a great example of mountain biking’s rapidly growing appeal.

The revamped circuit of about 6 km will once again take in a lap of the trotting track and each lap will see riders passing the clubrooms 3 times to give spectators a birds-eye view of the riders on each lap. The tight and technical track has had a heap of work done on it over the last 12 months – sure to impress and keep you on your toes.

The event will be held on Saturday afternoon in a family friendly atmosphere of food, music and games at the Harness Racing Trotting Club rooms. For out-of-towners, why not plan a weekend by the sea and enjoy everything Warrnambool has to offer. While you’re here, smash out a few laps of single track pleasure. You will love the trails, tight, twisty, rocks, roots, quick downhills, everything you need to have fun on 2 wheels.

Categories:
3 Hours – Open Male, Open Female, Open Pairs, Junior Pairs (under 17)
1 Hour – Open Male, Open Female, Under 17 Male, Under 17 Female

Thunder Point access

Thunder Point access

The Thunder Point Access wheels are turning, if you look closely. Councillors and staff Directors were astounded by your words, kindly compiled to video by Colleen Hughson (link) and James Russell (link), about why mountain biking at Thunder Point should not only stay, but continue to improve and grow. Our case is simple, short-term tenure, sub-standard track and threat of a new road through Thunder Point all affect our Club's growth. We want Council's support to be there, longer tenure and more space to build a national level facility. We are encouraged by Nick Bowman's (IMBA) recent visit suggesting a 15 - 20km IMBA standard track is possible for Thunder Point. If you want to talk further about mountain bike access at Thunder Point or elsewhere, get in touch with Gavin, he coordinates the Access sub-committee we have set up. On other access news, Parks Victoria are very happy with our continued use of Tower Hill for the Winter Series.
