Wildside 2012 and Blue Dragon 2012

Postby skull » Fri Jan 13, 2012 12:12 pm

I haven't seen any posts about these up so thought I would start one.

Anyone here going on these?
Wildside starts soon 4 days of mountain bike racing on the Tasmanian West Coast, I am pretty pumped.

Blue dragon is a two day event a week after it up the North of Tassie.

Should be great.

This is a first time for me. So I don't know what to expect apart from it being a brilliant race.

It sold out in less than a week. I think Blue Dragon is still open. That is the weekend after, if you can find a partner (Blue Dragon is a pairs race) hang around another week and do that one too)

You rotten buggers! The both of you! My competition partner during the SDBC is in it this year and he hasn't been shy in reminding me that I never got my entry in in-time.

Take brake pads. Like, lots.
