i think it was $110, it has been that price for the last few yrs, so i would say that it would be $115 or $120 in 2010.

Don't forget that the entries to the Highland Fling open on July 1st. And the Wildhorizons crew will have another event called the 3-Ring Circus in August on the Wingellow tracks.

i believe this yr could see leximack attempt the highland fling on a cyclocross bike (yeah, thats what he said last year you say :lol: ) . Trying to convince boognoss to join me and we can crusie along at the back togeher.

The 3 ring circus sounds interesting, 50km of wingello single track is not to be missed
I should be there

Leximack's convincing worked. I'm going to try cyclocross for the first time in the full fling :). Might need to try offroad training. Never done it before :D

November, sometime: Sydney Spring Fat Tyre Festival, held at Ourimbah. An awesomely fun, flowy track. But take your HRM - it has some climbs that make Heartbreak Hill at at Manly Dam look like a warm-up. :D
