This looks like heaps of fun boys!!! 2 thumbs and 2 toes up!!!
Hopefully join you'se with shorter events next year....
Donny, Looks like 100% concentration required for that type of terrain even if you are not riding in quite the same proximity (mostly?) to other riders as in roadie events.

Don, those are among the best mtb race action shots I've seen. Well done.
Definitely the skill of the photographer and not the subject
2011ish Avanti Quantum (DIY), 2010 Specialized Tricross, 2010 Salsa Casseroll
So you reckon the nose job has paid off then?
been a long time since i posted in this thread
But i urge you all to go out and get a mtb so you can experience the wonders the bush/outback/dirt/wilderness (whatever you want to call it) has to offer.
Check out this view
recently visited the new tracks at hornsby. or known as old mans valley. (omv). pretty short track at the moment but has a nice mix of flowy bits with some techy stuff as well to test yourself on. the main loop is the "blue" loop which I think most people could ride it 100%, off the blue loop there is extensions marked as the "black" loop which is where the technical sections are. also a green loop at the bottom for beginners/families. was heaps of people there all having a good time. def worth checking out. a few pics below.
It certainly is a brilliant track. Probably the best in Sydney at this time, in my opinion, if maximising fun is your main criteria for choosing a ride.
Maintenance is done by volunteers. If you're looking for a cross-training core strength workout, nothing beats wielding a shovel and partaking of some trail maintenance. Also a great way to meet good riders and new riding buddies.
cool vid, shows all the good stuff out there. I parked at dural and rode the quarry track first then hornsby from there. Was a good way to do it and added in some nice climbing along the quarry track (plus its easier for me to get to dural then hornsby)
That Hornsby track looks great, well worth checking out
For sure! Here's some pics i took a few months back at Baltzer Lookout at Blackheath.
Relatively short, but easily up there with the best views in the mountains, and lots of waterbars too Great for a beginner or for a quick ride. Or combine it with another ride in the upper mountains like narrowneck
bit of a gravedigger on the thread here
Have been playing with my camera lately, still a massive newb but getting there. Got a chestmount strap in the last couple of weeks so tried it out yesterday on the oaks single track section, not bad, just need to adjust the angle a bit and change the FOV to the wider option i think.
no time to breath when your hammering single track trying no to crash and burn
Most of that is between 30 and 35km/h
What are you doing Sunday? A mate and I and maybe some hangers on are doing an Oaks up-and-back Sunday morning. Local word is trail conditions are good despite the rain we've been having on the coast.
Now... should I take the GoPro?
PM me if interested.
hmm, was thinking of a bit of mtbing on sunday, if it doesnt rain tomorrow and no rain sunday then could be in for a ride.
What time are you heading off?
7:30am from the train station car park.
Local reports say no rain today and windy (cold) conditions. A few puddles but otherwise ... hero dirt.
