A fun and fast track with some incredible different soil type to what we are used to riding in Adelaide! The track winds its way down through switchbacks and finishes in the race village with some nice jumps.

PREVIEW COMING SOON

A free guided track walk will be held on Saturday practice morning, any riders welcome. Meet at the caravan at 8.30.


HELPING US COMES WITH PRIVILEGES - VOLUNTEER REGO

A few people asked last round about people being added after the race was full. If you look at the names you will see some of our biggest volunteers and sponsors such as Cain, Joff, Elton, Yatesy etc.

At the moment we really need people to step up and help setup and clean up after the events. It doesn't take long if we all work together! So please consider offering to help out wherever you or your parents can.

Please sign up on our volunteer platform here: http://help.insideline.com.au/


CONCUSSION POLICY

We have a strict concussion policy which is simply "if in doubt, sit them out". If concussion is suspected, the rider will not be allowed back on track unless they have a letter from their doctor supporting their return to sport. Riders, mums and dads do not get a say in this decision.

Riders please take care of each other and if you see someone coming off heavily and landing on their head, either knocking themselves out or looking disorientated please take note of their number and chat to them to make sure they dont get back on the bike. Afterwards let someone know of their plate number (track marshals, photographers, caravan crew, transport crew etc)

Unacceptable Behaviour
