FRIDAY 5pm TRACK CONDITIONS UPDATE - The RAMBO course for Sunday is in good nick and will be good to go. There is a bit of rain forecast on Saturday, but this shouldn’t make much difference to the track conditions. A few of us will ride the track and finalise bunting etc tomorrow. If there is any change (not expected), a post will be put up here and on AWMTB forums. See you all Sunday!!
The next winter series round forms part of our interclub series with Albury, Bright, Mt Beauty and Beechworth. This means a slightly different format than usual and slightly more expensive entry fees. The course is still very manageable for riders of all levels. Please see details below:
