MTB TRACK

The Saturdays events are quite technical in places, if they seem too technical you should look at the Easier events on the Sunday OR develop your skills in those areas leading up to the event. (after all it is meant to be an adventure right !!!)

Some of the Obstacles you are likely to encounter on your ALBANY MTB ride:

  • Steep hills – and a few of them, see the elevation profiles provides to get a good picture of the course
  • Traffic – Some obstacles will be traffic related in the form of having to dismount to cross a road or share the road with a vehicle in a couple of spots.(No road closures but signs are erected to warn motorists in these instances)
  • Stair descending- there are walking tracks we use in order to be able to link up enough trail to make the MTB track. These include sections of stairs which can be quite hard to ride even for experienced xc riders…it is recommended that you attempt to ride some stairs prior to the event or better still go over the course prior to the event.
  • Sharp rocks and Narrow tracks- Some of the areas on the track are walking tracks which have areas only wide enough to walk through, leaving only 1 line option to ride through safely, these lines can include having to roll over or jump over sharp rocks so having control of your bike is imperative. Also ensuring you ride within your capabilities.
  • Berms & Wall rides (wooden and earth made)
  • Drop offs- there is one descent sized drop on the course as well as a couple of steep stairs that need to be hit as you would hit a drop
  • Dirt Jumps- Dirt jumps appear in the Downhill area of the track, dirt jumps can be rolled over easily by controlling your speed… obviously you can jump it too.
  • Loose dirt on fire trails – After all that intense riding you may think its easy to descend a fire trail but the lack of obstacles makes it easy to get speed going, if you happen to hit some soft sand your can lose control so be aware of soil types and changes

RUN TRACK

The Saturdays run course is quite technical in places, if it seems too technical you should look at the Easier events on the Sunday OR develop your skills in those areas leading up to the event. (after all it is meant to be an adventure right !!!)

  • Rock hop-  There are a couple of Kilometres of hopping between descent sized boulders on the edge of the water, you can walk these sections where needed and it is recommended you wear your helmet in this area before dumping your helmet with a marshal at the end of the rock hop section. ONLY STEP ON ROCKS, NEVER STEP ON WET ROCKS!!
  • Vehicles and Suburbia- You will have to cross a road a couple of times, vehicles are notorious for hurting you when they run into you, so take 5 seconds before crossing a road to make sure you don’t end up hit and having to take an ambulance ride
  • Steep Up hills- You had better make sure your body can deal with running up a hill or a few
  • Stairs- near the Desert Corp memorial there are a bunch of stairs… don’t disrespect the diggers by not pushing yourself when you get there
  • Technical downhill running- YESSS! almost as fun as technical mountain biking …make sure you have some practice descending technical trail stairs etc so you can really enjoy race day
  • War memorial- there are old barbed wire sections and things you can fall off in this area…don’t be a goose!
  • Members of the public- they will be around, respect them and encourage them
