2017 Round 1 All Mountain race day

posted Mar 5, 2017, 6:52 PM by WMBC store

Great days racing at GV for the first round of the WMBC club championship. Great turn out with the iffy weather (which thankfully held off). 63 riders took part today with perfect track conditions as the track dried out. There was some great close racing and once again a lot of new riders giving racing a go for the first time.

Big thank you to all that helped out on the day. We are now a well oiled machine. Thanks to our new timing guys giving it a go for the first time. Thanks to all the riders for the co-operation today and making things run smoothly. Thanks to GV for the use of the facility.

Race results can be found on the website Results page.

The club has some great momentum at the moment and our race days have been well attended and run.
To maintain the momentum and to help the club move forward we need to have more people come on board and help with the running of your club, especially the running of our race days.
All positions will be elected on the night and we will look at establishing a race day committee to help with the running of events. 
We hope you can attend the meeting and get involved in the running of the club. Attendance at the meeting doesn't necessarily mean you will be given a formal role, but it gives you an opportunity to have a say in the future of the club. All welcome - hope to see you there.
