As most of you are aware Victoria is locked in a battle and sadly that battle continues to have uncertainty on when competition for the mountain bike community can resume.
Whilst we have rounds 1 and 2 for the series ear marked for Nov 14th and 15th, we are entirely unsure if this will happen.
We hope certainty can come and we can see you all soon under a COVID safe racing plan. But until then we can do little more than cross everything we have.
We hope to see you all soon

In Queensland and NSW whilst restrictions remain in place for public gatherings, events that have COVID safe plans as approved by the government are able to participate with I believe up to 500 participants. Whilst we would think this to be a sensible approach and that we could run COVID safe events, to date the Victorian Government we understand has indicated that the same wont be the case for Victoria as we are.. Well Victoria. So sadly we do not expect from 26th of October to be ok for racing. Yet we hope it will be www.covid19.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0025/132568/factsheet-one-appropriate-documentation... COVID Safe Events in Queensland Frequently
Good luck. Hope you can get back to putting on races soon. I wonder if there is a way to do XC racing with enduro-style timing? Basically set up timing gates and tell people they have the whole day/weekend to cover the segments. Just an idea... I reckon Strava could have stepped up/adapted their offerings during COVID restrictions.
Have not done any research, but could a time trial on a long one track loop be a work around ?
Thanks Robin, that about suits my current training regime, and budget 😬
As I read it we will be ok to race after 26 October, if cases are averaging below 5. Here's hoping everyone does the right thing and we get there. 🙄
Hoping for the best.

So another close one here. What if we had both and gave you the option?
Kids I reckon medals are cool, for adults surly you want the chocolate?
Cost is the same, one is from a social enterprise and is not environmental waste. ... See MoreSee Less
Personally I prefer something I can nail on the wall in the pain cave for motivation in future years
Do a survey, Get a result you don't like, ask a few Facebook friends instead? 😁
For podium winners give them back their entry money. Perhaps 1st place 2x entry, 2nd place 1.5 x entry and third entry fee. They worked hard so they deserve the reward and it might pay for Parents fuel. Random chocolate block giveaways for those that hang around to the presentations especially in the latter races. Road racing does it or similar so why don't we?
Just checked and our 3 kids would vote for chocolate every time !
Surely the answer is chocolate. You can't eat a medal.
Considering I will never be on the podium, my opinion is probably irrelevant.
My son if he is lucky loves getting medals
Or beers 🍻 too😝
