Sunday evening news

Happy New Year!

In our first 2019 newsletter we’re asking for volunteers, publishing new calendars and offering a great day at Lake Mountain.


VDHS volunteers - we want you!

We have a fortnight to go before we host Round 2 of the Victorian Down Hill Series at Mt Buller. However, we are getting desperate for corner marshals. The response so far has been, aaah… underwhelming.
Can you help? We don’t just want you… WE NEED YOU!

  • We require 15 volunteers per day for the event (3 x parking, 1 x site manager, 10 x course marshals, 1 x misc. tasks/relief marshal) also parking and site managers can be used to replace marshals as required for toilet breaks or similar once their initial tasks are complete

  • Saturday 8:30am - 4:30pm

  • Sunday 6:30am - 4:30pm

  • Basic Lunch pack provided each day

  • For those volunteering across both days, Mt Buller will provide two nights on-mountain accommodation (Fri & Sat nights) in the Medical Centre apartments

Please email Bruce as soon as you can so we can get this sorted. Otherwise he’ll start ringing around to nag you… and we’re sure you won’t want that!

Race Calendars

The new road race calendar has been published. Click here to have a look at when you’re on duty; and check on start times and locations, they’ve changed a little for this season.
Also, if you are on duty, please make sure you have a read of the Race Duty instructions on the Road Race Info page as some of these have changed too. In particular, Commissaires should have a read as you’ve had a duty added! But we’ll contact you anyway, just to make sure.
It’s only fair to the rest of the club that we all take our turn to help races run smoothly and efficiently.
The Dirt Crits calendar is also now up.

Road trip to Lake Mountain/Marysville

Next Sunday 13 January we’re planning a road trip to Marysville and Lake Mountain. Roadies will get a chance to ride up to Lake Mountain and get the ‘stamp’ in your 7 Peaks passport. Mountain bikers will be able to ride the new Cascades trail from Lake Mountain to Marysville trail, which by all accounts, is an absolute ball-tearer!
Why not do both? Ride up on the road bike, descend on the mtb!
If you’d like to join in on the fun, please email Damian.

Skills session at Riflebutts on Tuesday

As there are no Dirt Crits for another few weeks, Damian is planning to head up to Riflebutts MTB Park on Tuesday for a bit of a spin, maybe talk tactics and techniques. It’s all very informal, please feel free to head up for a ride.
