Barrys Block - CYCLETREK AT KAMBARANG STATE RND 3 : 13/5/2012
For those who have raced here before there have been a few changes to previous races. There are 4 new sections of trail, with an additional overtaking (fire road) section. The start/finish has been relocated to our camp ground area, all races will have 1 short lap in the respective race.The race track has been extended to around 6.4k, but still incorporating the tight single track, rock gardens and not forgetting " over the edge" with an additional jump. It will be a challenge for the 29ers. The track will be open all day for practice on the 12th (Sat),but if the desire is there, the track is open all the time (coopers pale ale or a good red is the bribe).
Parking arrangements are also a little different, it will be a lot easier if people parked further up the fenceline as the start/finish line will be easily accessible (500m walk) but signs will show you the way.
Accommodation is available in our self contained cabin with room for at least 6 people (double bed in loft, 2 singles and double sofa bed downstairs) from $90 per night (2 people) and caravan overflow (1 single, 1 small double) - with the race track at the door. There will also be limited camping available at $10/person.
For forest hygiene purposes, if it has rained by then (hopefully), riders MUST ensure their bikes are clean (dont forget under saddle and bottom bracket).
MUDDY BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ENTRY TO THE PROPERTY.
PLEASE WASH YOU BIKE AS BEST AS YOU CAN AFTER PEMBERTON, WE WILL BE SUPPLYING A TROUGH WITH DISINFECTANT, PRIOR TO ENTERING THE FOREST, IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE THIS TO STOP THE SPREAD OF DIEBACK, THANK YOU.
The local store has closed down, so no food, grog or fuel is available. We will operate a mini cafe "the Coffee Rock Cafe", supplying tea/ coffee / cool drinks / hot home made soup / muffins etc.
