Aust Mountain Bike Champs 2008 wrap

By Kramer 31 January 2008 2

Apologies for the delay with this wrap, as I’ve been suffering from either a hangover or heatstroke for the last few days. The Australian Mountain Bike Championships at Stromlo Forest Park was a huge event this year – even bigger & better than last year. Canberra Off-Road Cyclists (CORC) claimed the homeground advantage, with local riders taking the lions share of the trophies – check the results.

It was a hot weekend, but thankfully nowhere near as dusty as last year, thanks to the recent rain and semi-established native shrubbery. Riders highly praised the tweaked downhill course, which was faster, yet more technical this year offering thrills and challenges for all riders. The XC races featured new tracks which offered riders new ways to burst their lungs. So it looks like CORC have stepped up another level in preparation for the world cup round later in the year.

More details on Cycling News including some great photos of the racing.

I volunteered in the Rego tent on Saturday morning and then got to have a peak around for a couple of hours – seemed like a decent set up, some awesome racing and some really cool people. I missed the Trials though! Oh well, there’s always next time.

Definitely enjoyed the DH and the atmosphere in and around triple threat… great weekend!
