Race 3 | Coondoo NSW

Date

Saturday 9. May 2020

This is classic cross-country lap racing at its best – race solo or in teams for four or seven hours!

The Coondoo trails at Nowra are such a treat and truly add to the variety of trails we have in the whole series – they are seriously fast and we can’t wait to see the 2020 finish sprints. For two years in a row the 4 hour solo racers have absolutely smashed themselves, which provided for such an exciting racing atmosphere! In 2019 young Owen Gordon properly challenged Mr. Jason English in the 7 hour too! 👇 The team racers will enjoy each lap and you’ll find this is a track where you can really dial those lines, each lap is more fun than the previous one… until the legs start screaming that is.

Bring the whole family for the perfect riding and racing weekend getaway close to the beaches of the South Coast for a perfect long weekend autumn riding getaway.

Location

The trails we used in 2019 have been badly damaged by the recent bush fires. Luckily there are other trails in the same forest that were not affected by the fires and we are currently exploring all options together with the SCUM club. We will have an updated map for you a few weeks before the event.

2019 trails (likely to change in 2020):

We are racing at Coondoo with thanks to the local SCUM South Coast United Mountain Bikers. Located just south of Nowra this trail is fast and flowy with little climbing per lap. The area is managed by the Forestry Corporation. Camping is allowed at this venue.
