COGS #3 5th June 2016
Start: from 1pm – rego from 11.45am
Le Monds style with a COGS difference:
Up the Southern underpass then turn left onto fire road heading south before right into Smitten Kitten, then across into Innabaanya, across into Sleepy Hollow, before right up fire road before right back into Lincoln across into Telemark across into Pitt St and Dew Drop Inn, then exit left (at old entrance/exit) at next fire road and left up into a another gentler section of Car Body, back across fire road and onto Mata Hari, across into Mr Squiggle, before right turn down Magic Round-about and onto fire road then left into Bogs and Logs before a left out onto concrete cycle path and back down onto southern underpass (keeping left always as two way traffic) to the Start/Finish point.
This course does have a few technical sections as well as downhill sections that need to be ridden sensibly within a rider’s capability such that we all return home after the race without serious injury. Triple arrows will be placed indicating the technical sections but please ride within your capabilities as there are no prizes for axing yourself or coming first.
All riders need to ensure that they feel comfortable riding this sort of terrain because this is the type of course that we organisers will be setting during the XC series, hence the 15+ minimum age. There are other races being held catering for mainstream riders with timing (that use to workJ) which may be better suited to some riders.
12.30pm Start – Rego from 11.45am – Parent helpers welcomed J
Clockwise around “The Flash”: – Under 5 – 1 lap, Under 8 – 2 laps, Over 8 3 laps. They will also have access to this track, the pump track and the jumps track whilst the adults are racing (under adult supervision of course).
BBQ and drinks afterwards (gold coin donation) with Random number prizes to be given out courtesy of Monkey Wrench Cycles – not as many as the inaugural race though where every rider received a prize – had to be there J
