In 2014 the Single Track Mind race series is set to expand, with several new events alongside old favourites including the Kalamunda 50 and Jarrahdale 6 Hour.
The series will kick off in April with the Jorgenson Park 4 Hour. The open, flowing course is perfect for new riders and those who love to go fast. This event is available to solo and team entrants, and is the perfect way to start the mountain biking season. The series will then head to the classic trails of Marrinup and Turners Hill for the Dwellingup 50. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Reece Tucknott to assist him to race in Europe. The following round will then be at Langford Park, where riders can indulge in the flowy trails during the Jarrahdale 6 Hour. The pinnacle event of the series will be the Kalamunda 50. Now in it’s 4th year, if you are a lover of singletrack this is the race for you! The Kalamunda Collective have put an enormous amount of work into expanding the Kalamunda trail network, allowing us to put together a fresh course of the finest singletrack for 2014. Once again this event will support the Kalamunda Collective’s trail building efforts through a donation to assist them to build more trails in the area.…View More
The 2012 Act Belong Commit Dwellingup 100 was a huge event with a record field of 900 riders taking part in the challenge to race over 14, 40 or 100 kilometres through some of Western Australia’s premier mountain biking country.
The 100 kilometre race was won by Canberra’s Andy Blair in a record time but the Australian Marathon Champion didn’t have it all his own way. Local rider and former winner of the event, Jon Gregg, led Blair with a few kilometres to go. The winner was decided in an exciting sprint finish with only one second separating the pair after more than four hours of racing. Third place went to Dave Hind who rode the final 25 kilometres of the course with a heavily buckled front wheel. …View More
After a week of heavy rain the sun came out and stayed out for the 2012 Stihl WA Downhill State Championships. With plenty of preparation going into the track from the PDMBC crew, and conditions that were getting tackier with each run the stage was set for an epic weekend. Saturday’s practice session saw just over 100 riders take to the hill trying to master the course which was still very slick in parts with the second rock garden claiming it’s fair share of victims however with the track evolving over the day some sections dried out, while in others dry rocks and roots got a thin coating of mud and kept riders on their toes (or bums).
Kian Esmaili follows Mitch Monotti through his life’s up and downs and how he has always returned to riding. This is probably the best mountainbike video I’ve watched in some time, don’t pass this one by.
