Make sure you get in contact with Mark Bullen at the Armidale Bicycle Centre to get your entry in for the Mt Yarrowyck “Hell of the North West” – tell him which race you want to do (20/40/100). The earlier we get numbers, the easier things are to organise.
The Tamworth club have listed an email entry contact for Nemingha-Nundle on the 15th of May – get clicking! If a chump like me can contemplate entering it, then so can you.

This weekend is a 40km race on Dangarsleigh – so it’s a bit longer than usual on an extended course. If you’re thinking to yourself: “Hey, isn’t the road there a vertical cliff like those old-timey pictures of sailing boats floating off the edge of the world?”, you’re right.

It’s made of chocolate and marshmallows and who doesn’t like that?
