Just a few things to remember for this weekend Maxxis XC race:
1/ Maxxis XC Race Rego starts from 9.00 am, Maxxis XC Race start time will start 10.00 am over at the lower Rail Trail car park by the Dirt Jumps/pumptrack.
2/ Daylight saving starts this Sunday so don’t be late.
3/ Rego and prize giving are at Ferris Rd Brewery, 7 Ngapara St. Sam will be cooking up a storm with spit roast lamb rolls/ pizza and of course cold craft beer.
4/ Something new this year we will be doing a couple of timed section within the race as well KOM & KODH so you can brag to your friends over a beer how fast you were up or down which ever is your thing!
5/ The course will start similar to most years but out the back you will be doing 2 laps of the same section then heading back to town & finish.
6/ Distance is about 28km mostly techy single track & 800 + meters of uppitty.
7/ The forecast is looking good 20+ degrees so it going to be a warm one.
11/9/17: SRAM Enduro results here (Results Page). Dodgy cool weather was ok for the 10am start but deteriorated as the day progressed and saw stage 6 wiped due to a heavy shower of rain. Prizegiving commenced 3pm, congrats to all winners and especially all who competed.
10/9/17: CJ Suspension Downhill results here. Nice finish by all competitors Overall Female was Georgia Wight and Overall Male Matt Scoles. Congrats to all. Weather held up… just! Track held up well!
7/9/17: CJSuspension Downhill entries now closed. Please ensure you pay online. On the day payments will be charged the late fees. Keep everyone happy and sort it early, save time, money, fuss & frustration!
10/8/17: Here’s a plan! We have a lot of entries (150+) for the SRAM enduro on Sunday. Why not come to Alex on Saturday, have a pre-ride then come out to the CJSuspension DH (it’s on Clyde Lookout Rd, well signposted) watch some the downhill and pick up your ride number and P-card for next day! We’ll have your SRAM enduro rider packs available for pickup from approx 3.30pm (after the DH prizegiving) Do this and you’ll be all set for Sunday, avoid a potentially ginormous queue and enjoy a slightly more relaxed enduro, good plan…
08/08/17: Entries for the enduro are maxed out so the 9 entries received after 5pm are being placed on a wait list, Phil will be in touch. More info on the Facebook page as it happens!
Hi and Welcome to the Norco Linger & Die Series for 2017. Entries are now open so have a read here then get over to the online entry page. Don’t forget the Dual Entry Discount for the Gravity Weekend (Sat 9/9 and Sun 10/9 only)
Please remember: that to enjoy the double deal AND/OR online entry rates you must also pay online (or we receive payment) BEFORE the online entry cutoff date (Thursday 7/9/2017 @ 6pm). We prefer direct deposit, easy for you & easy for us!
You can pay on the day but it will be the ‘On the Day Entry ‘ rate, and no ‘Double Deal’ discount can apply. That would be a ‘sad-face’ moment for you… we don’t want that.
