MMBCC News. 14 January 2013

Hi Everyone,

It’s on again! First road race is this Thursday so entries to Di by Wednesday 8pm please. A Big thanks to Bruce and the road crew for pulling together the calendar ( – it’s a lot of work and adjusting so well done. On the subject of road racing, it’d be great if just a couple more people considered commissairing. It’s not hard and spreads the work for the rest of us. Speak to myself or Bruce if you are interested.
Also, a big thank you to Sharron Jones who has done a lot of commissairing for us over the last few years and is having a well-deserved break. Sharron has taken the job on conscientiously and has always been there to fill a few gaps in our roster. Thank you Sharron.
I know the mountain bike calendar isn’t far away so keep an eye on the site. Meanwhile please read Katie’s request for help for the MTN National series below. It’s a great weekend and a great way to be involved if not actually riding!

Road Racing

G'day All ( from Bruce)
It's almost SCODY High Country Cycle Challenge time again!
In the same way as the last few years, I'm happy to offer reduced price entries to the SHCCC to MMBCC members. There are still jerseys available and as long as you enter soon, you'll get one.
Last year's discount was 40%. This year I'm offering 50% off the normal entry fee to MMBCC members. Just like last year, you need to own a full set of MMBCC kit to qualify for the discount.
If you already own a full set of kit, email me and I'll send you the code you need to get the discount.
If you don't yet own a full set of kit, you need to contact Fiona Greenway (the Keeper of the Kit) on 0458 316 465 or email and organise to buy a set. The club has recently re-stocked so I'm sure she'll have something to fit you. Once Fiona lets me know you've bought the kit, I'll email you the code.
If 50% off is still a bit steep, what about a free entry? We need just a few workers for the morning of Saturday 16 March. In return for a few hours work on the Saturday, I'll offer a FREE entry to the Sunday ride which, yes, will include the jersey. (I know many of you will be involved in organising the Critierium, so please check with John Lithgow first, in case he needs you - )
Information on the ride can be found at … a reminder too that a 'full set of kit' means jersey, knicks AND socks too!
Bruce Halket.

Mountain Biking

Time to sign up for a fab weekend, participating in the 2013 National Series at Mt Buller!

We are looking for volunteers to assist with marshalling for the event. You will witness world-class downhill and cross country biking, hook up with some super cheap accommodation, have time to ride the trails, get a good feed, and more!

Grab your buddies and make a weekend of it. Contact Katie Moore on 0415 369 297 or for more information.

Hope to see you on top of the world, at Mt Buller!

Thanks so much!

Katie Moore
