Singletrack obsessives rejoice!
The team from Chocolate Foot are proud to announce the launch of the premier endurance race series for New South Wales: The 2010 SRAM Singletrack Mind Series – Protected by Brave Soldier.
From April 2010 mountain bikers are set to test themselves and their team mates in a series of five events ranging in length from 6 hours to the series finale, a 10 hour challenge! Also at the conclusion of the series to celebrate all the hard work and relive the great times of almost 40 hours of mud, sweat and gears, the village of Appin is ready to party!
Each venue in the series has been selected for its sweet flowing singletrack and ability to host everything that makes for a great event. The series kicks off on 18 April in western NSW's singletrack oasis, Lidsdale State Forest near Lithgow. Well worth the drive, the deceptively challenging track will serve up 8 hours of singletrack joy for those seeking the enduro fix!
2010 SRAM Singletrack Mind Series Schedule
18 April – Lidsdale State Forest, Lithgow
16 May – Coondoo Road, Nowra
13 June – Yellomundee Regional Park, Yarramundi
29 August – Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra
25 September – WMBC track, Appin
While Chocolate Foot is a new business, its principals bring a vast knowledge of mountain biking and event management to ensure the polished and professional running of the series. Fiona Dick has extensive experience in the organisation of large scale events, is an MTB skills educator and has written for the major mountain bike magazines. Joe Ward is Australia's most prolific cycling TV show producer, having covered the past seven Australian Mountain Bike Championships and the recent World Mountain Bike Championships in Canberra.
We're also really looking forward to presenting great prizes from all our generous sponsors: SRAM, Brave Soldier skincare, Lezyne, NZzo clothing, K-Lite Racing lights, RockShox, Avid, Truvativ and Hammer Nutrition.
All brands that are innovative and what we regard to be the best! Prizes that really reward busting your butt for hours on end!
