Singletrack Mind Series

... for anyone obsessed with singletrack

Update - 2015 Singletrack Mind Series

Further to the announcement (below) made on 16 December, we have changed the date of Singletrack Mind Series 2 from 17 May to 28 June. It conflicted with the Australian Marathon Champs in Tassie, and given that there are 3 rounds of the series this year, each of which will count towards series points for solo riders, we didn't want to see our awesome soloists penalised by choosing to race the Championships. With such a packed calendar these days, there will always be event clashes but we feel that, given the update to our series this year, this one was worth avoiding.

2015 will mark the 6th awesome year of the Singletrack Mind series. It’ll remain the same with 4 hour solo and 7 hour solo & team categories, the finest singletrack in NSW and our usual slick organisation and relaxed vibe of the events. With so much on the racing calendar we’ve decided to pare the series back to a leaner and more acheiveable 3 event format and they’ll be 3 VERY memorable days out on your bike!

The Series is again made possible by the kind cooperation of our hosts, the great mountain bike clubs of South Coast United Mountain Bikers at Nowra, Southern Highlands Cycling Club at Wingello and the management of Western Sydney Parklands. We are looking forward to working together with them to bring you another singletrack extravaganza!

Also new for 2015 is the inclusion of the first round in the new Evocities MTB series. Our round at Wylde MTB park will be the only metropolitan round of the series which focuses on delivering high quality MTB events to regional “Evocities" such as Dubbo, Wagga and Tamworth. We think this series is a great initiative and are very excited to be an event partner.

As ever, we’ll organise everything you could need for a great day out on the bike: sublime singletrack, fantastic prizes, kids' racing, plus plenty of chances to win schwag with spot prizes and competitions.

Round 1, 12 April: The newly-built Wylde MTB Park is the most highly anticipated MTB facility in Sydney and located near the MTB course for the 2000 Olympics. We’re really stoked about kicking off the series here for 3 reasons: it’s a great track, we’ll be hosting the first major event for the track and it’s also part of the Evocities Series. Boom!

Round 2, 28 June: Wingello in the Southern Highlands is synonymous with fast, fun and challenging singletrack! The Highlands Trails group have been busy with a recent singletrack addition and with the wonderful Southern Highlands MTB club partnering with us for this round, this is not to be missed!

Round 3, 30 August: The fast and flowy Coondoo Road trails at Nowra have featured in each of the previous five years of the Singletrack Mind Series. Hosted by the South Coast Mountainbikers, the course offers a bunch of different options for course setting, and while it’s great for the novice rider, more experienced riders love it as it's challenging to ride consistently fast!
