The club is privileged to be hosting the 2014 Cycling Australia/MTBA Subaru Marathon National Champs at Mt Joyce on April 6. We need a few more volunteers to help with the delivery of this event in particular:

•2 more people to assist on Friday and Saturday with Event Bump In and Course Set up.
•2 people to help with registration on Saturday afternoon from 3-5pm.
•However we need a lot more people to assist on Sunday with course marshalling, registration and timing, starting from 6am. This can be an enjoyable day out and you can get involved with the racing with cowbells, whistles etc.

The club is offering an exclusive camping area at the Western Trailhead with toilets and (cold) showers free of charge. This should allow you to come down on Saturday afternoon and enjoy the evening and get to know your fellow club members.

The event is being co-ordinated by Cycling Australia, so there is lots of freebies for people helping out including T-Shirts, Meals and drinks. The club is also offering assistance to get you to the venue and will be covering your expected fuel costs to get to the venue from Brisbane so you shouldn’t be out of pocket.

If you can help out with any of the above tasks, please get in contact with us via return email. We can only run these events with the assistance of the club membership, so come along to this event and help the club put on a great event!

Hennessey Cup Wrap Up March 24, 2014

The 2014 Hennessey Cup has been run and won. With a familiar format but a smaller prize purse and lower entry fee attracted a competitive field of riders. From the start, Tim Richmond (Ashgrove Cycles) pushed Chris O’Dowd and a trio of junior riders; Patrick Ramm (Ashgrove Cycles), Harry Bush (Planet PCS) and Loic Fery (Ashgrove Cycles).
Although Richmond pulled a small gap over O’Dowd, a small mechanical levelled the field with around 90 minutes to race. Richmond, pushed hard after a minor delay and regained the gap over a fading O’Dowd, pulling clear by a lap with around half an hour to go. It was at this time the junior’s race started heating up, with all 3 riders boarding the same shuttle for the final run; the result coming down to who would cross the line first on the final run. It was Bush clear from Ramm and Fery as they crossed the line, but it became apparent that even the riders we’re aware of the situation. In the end, the 3 junior riders coming in 3-5th overall, completing 35 laps.

There is one social ride in the 4 week cycle currently without a leader. If you would like to volunteer for this position and be willing to lead a ride around the Bunyaville trails on a Saturday starting at a leisurely 7am and going for about 1.5-2hrs , please let us know by commenting below or getting in touch on email or Facebook.
