There's also plenty of great riding on the trails up at Buller at the moment and entries for the Scody High Country Cycle Challenge and the Criterium/Road race on the 17th/18th March are open and filling up. By the way - John Lithgow is looking for vols for the crits etc Please call him if you can help - 0407301232.



Not sure if you watched SBS on Sunday but three hours of GreenEdge was just fantastic and what a win by MMBCCs own SIMON GERRANS - 2012 Australian Road Racing Champion. Congrats from all of us Simon. We'll give you free entry in our Thursday night race if you wear the jersey!!Pic -



Get training for the start of the second half of the season. Monday 16 January 2012 at 6.00pm at the Riflebutts MTB Park. Mitch and Katie are on duty for this Monday and we will put up the roster and calendar in the next couple of days.

If anyone can do a bit of clearing before then the second half of the long course needs a bit of triming. See Shannon at the bike shop and he'll direct you.



Don't forget that all Roadies MUST HAVE their new membership cards for this weeks race. Either bring your card along or a print out of the email you got from CV. If you haven't renewed the last newsletter or to the Join Now tab on the web site - Click Here. NO CARD - NO START.
