Nowa Nowa 4 Hour Enduro: 23-Sep-2012

UPDATE 2: Work has been completed on the tracks at Nowa Nowa for the race and a course is now open. Huge thanks to Jacinta and Mick for their hard work. Please show your support for their hard work by entering and coming along to this event.

UPDATE: Because of the strong winds the course for this years event will be different to that described. Local riders and DSE are working together to clear a path but the length of the course will depend on how much gets cleared. However, the event will still be running.

Round 8 of the Gippsland MTB Club Championship sees riders return to East Gippsland and the purpose built MTB Trails at Nowa Nowa. For those of you that have never been there, this would be the perfect opportunity to experience these trails built by club members Pete & Max Cook.

The start location will be at the main Nowa Nowa MTB Park trail head. To get there take the first road on the left after crossing Boggy Creek bridge heading towards Orbost, approximately 1km from Princes Highway on Old Buchan Road.

The lap will be the same as the previous Nowa Nowa race. It will start by climbing up Track 4, onto Track 5 to the top of the park. It will then descend the top section of Track 5 until it meets up with Track 3 for a short climb to the top of Track 2. It will then descend all the way down everybody’s favorite, Track 2. Should be a challenging loop but still achievable by all.

The course will be approximately 10.5 KM in length with competitors doing a many, or little, laps as they can within the 4 hour time frame.

The event will be open to both members and non-club members and will also offer both solo and team classes.

There has been some interest about having a kids event at Nowa Nowa for primary school aged kids at the same time as the main enduro. The idea is to have a half hour ride on tracks 1, 6 and 7 that will not interfere with the main event. Nowa Nowa is one of the only locations that has a purpose built short family track for this type of thing. The entry for this event is $10 and will cover the day license and a drink and sausage at the end of the event. Enter on the day for this event.
