After a Fantastic weekend’s racing at the downhill in Clyde on Saturday and the Enduro in Alex on Sunday the third instalment of Linger and Die is due to take place on Sunday September 28 in Alexandria. ¬†This is a classic Central Otago XC race so if you have not done it yet you should make this the year, it is well worth competing in as it encompasses a broad range of top quality singeltrack. ¬†This year it is timed to coincide with the annual Blossom festival so why not make a weekend of it?
Check out the great photos of the DH and Enduro races on the Linger and Die Facebook Page
DOC recently have discovered some evidence of bikers on some of their walking-only trails. ¬†Remember there are some pretty stiff penalties for riding on walking only tracks and DOC are pretty serious about inforcing them so it’s best to keep off them for your own protection. ¬†The club does have a good working relationship with DOC and we are working with them to gain access to trails where we can. ¬†If you want to find out which DOC tracks you can ride on have a look at their website here where you can get a full list of tracks open to mountain bikers.
Until the end of October Outside Sports are increasing their usual discount on all items* for QMTBC members¬†from 10% to 20% for all Specialized Helmets and Shoes! ¬†This is a great opportunity to get the season off to a good start and replace that ageing helmet and/or uncomfortable shoes you keep hanging on to. ¬†A quality helmet is a key piece of safety equipment and should be replaced if you have crashed it or dropped it hard.
