A similar camp may possibly be held in Melbourne next month if there are enough interested riders ...

Marty, if you're at the National Track champs, Danny is there. Seek him out, say gidday and mention the word "Cross" and watch the excitement reach fever pitch.
There seems to be lots of interest down your way so I'll keep you posted if it goes ahead.
Cheers mate

Will try and speak with Danny tomorrow. I have already booked my flights to Adelaide for the National CX championship in August plus looking to make it to most of the NCXS events, so any tips will be invaluable.

If you want to race CX you need one anyway...

I'd love to do this but have no CX bike. Better get searching so I can build one up.
It would be $50 well spent IMO.
