The races will be professionally timed by Race Day Timing Services to ensure fast and accurate results.

The series will kick off Saturday night at Pro City Racing headquarters (Trek Bike Store Victoria) with a free BBQ sponsored by M&M Meats and Hoyne Brewing Co. The BBQ will be an opportunity for participants to grab their race packages, hang out and discuss strategy for Sunday’s race.

 although the music at first didn't seem to fit the style of riding, the editing and the fast-pace style actually seemed to turn out ok, something that you don't see generally with enduro riding.

 Wow-level riding and great local trails. Great 29 and 26 riding style comparison with two fairly evenly matched/talented riders. Mitch is straight-line rocketing through stuff, while Dean is dancing and moving the bike around more. Stick in another ripper in between them on a 650B and you would make an awesome video outstanding.

 I think the video was awesome regardless what size wheels they were running

 I love how the editing can make you start going downhill at the bottom, which leads to the middle, then the top, then middle and then the bottom again.

 The drop at 2:27 is now closed and it's the funnest (legal) thing in the whole park Frown

 It looks like they're just doing some maintenance on that drop...

 The log has been covered then dug up about 3 times over a month ago and been closed ever since.

 That drop will be back, don't worry. Trail maintenance only happens once a month and if there aren't enough volunteers to move those logs into place on a given day, they aren't going to move themselves.

 Yes, the drop is being rebuilt. I used a dirt surface at first but the feature became so popular that I've decided to resurface it with interlocking stone to make it last indefinitely. I unfortunately don't have a timeline as I'm in the middle of a huge yard reno. I promise it will be better than ever when it's finished.
