The 6 hour Goldrush Weekend

What a great weekend, everyone had a blast.
The weather was fine, if a little chilly on Saturday night, I'm sure it got below 5 degrees that night!!!!. The temperature did not bother the competitors for the night dirt dash... it was a action packed racing format. As the field was slowly culled to leave the final seven racers to compete for line honours.... in the elite division it was Aiden Lefmann first and Andy Fellows hot on his tail. It was great to watch.

When Sunday rolled around, everyone was keen to race, the weather was cool but dry ... perfect riding conditions. Everyone liked the course, some parts were really technical and challenging but it just made for better camp fire stories that night. The hill climbs and tight switchbacks were tough but it made the last 2-3 kms of downhill and sweeping corners awesome. The final stretch (named "Big Ring Fling") was perfect for that sprint home just flick it the big ring and let it rip. We had a great turn out from the Sunshine Coast, The Noosa Trailblazers and  The Bushrangers MTB clubs. Check here for all the juicy results.
After making the rounds and chatting to people, it seems the weekend was a great success and it was a perfect way to spend a long weekend.
See you there next year.
