Awaba National round

18 01 2012

We had an onsite meeting at Awaba today to do a little planning for the impending National round. We focused on some temporary XC track sections which we can use to link up the best bits of trail to give the required 5km loop. The trail is going to be freaking brutal. Along with the usual camelback climb, there will be a new technical climb that goes a LONG way up the hill and through a few nice rock structures including a ‘hammer head’ esk rock that will be an awesome feature.

It’s going to be a pretty ‘euro’ style course with big climbs and steep descents that will be really worth of a National round. With a little bit of work, we should have some of the sections scratched in shortly and we’ll open them up to get some wheels over them for anyone with a big motor or big ambition.

There will be a notice soon enough on the HMBA website for help with some build days that are going to be needed on both the XC trail and the downhill track. If you can get along, it will be a huge boost to the club.
