After the great success of the Forrest Mountain Bike and Cycling Club had with its six hour enduro event last year, the 2010 event is set to be equally as popular.
The planning has been done and the rider numbers have rapidly expanded towards filling out the expected 350 rider event
The race which will be held on Sunday June the 6th will attract riders ranging from the elite through to the beginner, riding bikes which will range from multi thousand dollar beasts through to perhaps, old time favourites which may be only dusted of for a ride a couple of times a year.
The instant popularity of the event has been a great boost for the club. It also proves how well the Forrest trails and the Forrest community are regarded amongst the mountain biking fraternity.
Some of last year’s sponsors are again on board along with some new ones which will enable the club to deliver to some of the major categories some pretty impressive cash winnings and some wonderful prizes in the other categories.,
Once again there will be a range of food vendors on site ranging from the Forrest lions club to the local coffee vendor providing warm meals and coffee, which will most certainly be a hit with the competitors, supporters and spectators.

Here's one event not to be taken to seriously. The Vestal Virgin Classic 10 Hour is to be held in the Awaba MTB Park and you can be penalised for being too serious ie: racing.

The HOTRock 8 is strangely enough an 8 hour enduro where riders aim to complete as many laps of the 10-12km course. Of course you don't have to ride the whole time if you don't want to. Enter as solo or as a team.

I have been putting the Julbo Dirt sunglasses through the paces from close to a year now while mountain biking. They have dealt with wind storms, rain, snow, and light varying from the bright desert, to the dark woods, and everything in between. They have gotten bounced around while riding [...]
There’s a running joke among smart coaches in the fitness field – if you want to get into great shape look at what everyone else is doing and do the opposite. Most people go to the gym and do something like this:
- Walk on a treadmill for 10 minutes

This morning I woke up at 6am and got out to do another batch of tie dyes, adult female cut T-shirts. The air was heavy with humidity and the biting bugs were out in force. I braved the elements though and got the job done. Sometimes when one is working hard, it is easy to forget ... — full article at ashevillejanes.blogspot.com
