    So with a little less than three weeks until the fun starts we are rally starting to ramp up preps. We have run our shake down events on the DH and 4X but the XC will be a bit of an unknown. Its had lots of traffic, and lots of hot laps but its never been tested in anger - should be interesting.


    I had confirmation that the current Swiss world champ boys will be heading down right after the olympics so am keen to see what they think.

    We are still looking for Vols - so if you have some time then please think about it. If not then perhaps you can just come and watch - its going to be fun

    I am looking forward to the urban crit in the middle of canberra too - on the 15th, at night and right outside the pub - should be sweet

    mtbworlds.com.au is the place for all the info
