CHOCCY FOOT DATE CHANGE – MOWBRAY FARM FOR COONDOO

Andrew

As we all know, things don’t always go to plan. Yesterday Mowbray Park Farm (MBF) contacted us to say they are concerned that they may not have their development application approval from Council in time for our race, Round 4, on Sunday 31 August. Apparently wheels have been turning slower than usual for many applications and the general consensus from MBF, Wollondilly Trailblazers Club and ourselves was that, without a guarantee that we could race at MBF on 31 August, we should look for an alternative venue now.
It’s unfortunate for all parties – MBF miss out on welcoming you to their venue and Wollondilly Trailblazers miss out on showcasing their new trail, the result of hundreds of hours of labour. We’re obviously disappointed but are thankful that this was highlighted to us sooner rather than later giving us the opportunity to find an alternative venue and you guys plenty of notice to modify your travel plans.

Every rain-laden cloud has a silver lining and we’re stoked to say that SCUM’s Coondoo Road track will replace Mowbray Park Farm. We were a little bummed that we didn’t have space for SCUM in the 2014 Series, but now you’ll get to enjoy Coondoo’s fast and flowy trails for a 5th year in a row, making it now the only venue that has featured in every edition of the Finish Line Singletrack Mind Series!

SINGLETRACK MIND RYDAL

I am never one to look at the forecast before heading off to races. It just seems a little easier to pack the car with those extra jackets and jumpers , prepared for whatever may come. Midway though my drive west over the mountains, I realised I had forgot those essentials and it was just as I reached Katoomba blanketed in fog and light rain. Bummer.
That was it though, descending Mt Victoria the skies returned to being pleasantly overcast and it was on to Rydal. Sneaking in the back way past Lake Lyall and some picturesque countryside I arrived in the one pub town with enough time to quickly grab a coffee and a bacon sandwich before the start.
There were quite a few campers, in fact over half the field were camping according to the race organisers. However, such positive things cannot be said about the nights sleep some had, fractured and on and off sleep could make things more difficult down the line. …View More
