Finsh Line Singletrack Mind Series 2014 - competitor and supporter comments


Round 5, Kinross State Forest, Orange

Thanks to Fiona & Joe for the superb work of pulling together round after round of great trails and event organising. Can't wait for 2015!

Epic race. Epic series. Awesome people. So much fun. Thanx.

Thank you to you, Joe and the team for making it so easy to enjoy Choccy Foot events - always great tracks maintained by dedicated local mtn bike clubs, laid back atmosphere/great people to hang out with/wonderful volunteers, commitment to supporting women in mtn biking (great year for the Choccy Foot girls!!)...Steve for making me look fast, and Dave Bateman and Ian always getting my good side ;o) Great year thank you!

A few thanks I have to make. Firstly Chocolate Foot's Joe and Fi for putting on an awesome series and setting up these races in all the best locations. Also to the sponsors and clubs for their support without whom none of these events would happen.

And thanks to you both, and your team of volunteers for some superb events throughout nsw. Although I didn't race all of them, the ones I did were top notch. Great organization, a great bunch of people as well as competitors and such a good atmosphere. Good job guys!

The Chocolate Foot series always seems to throw up close, competitive racing at wonderful venues around New South Wales.

Thank you for hosting as always a great well organised race. The weather was perfect and the trails were sweet. You guys have done some amazing things with developing women participation in the sport and I think that is really amazing and we have really noticed the increasing numbers of women and the juniors. The vibe at the races is always upbeat, happy and relaxed and that is a real draw card for us. Your no dickhead rule works.

Thanks for organising such awesome races & great track today, I was told it is going to be logged. Quite a shame as I would say one of the best tracks I've raced

Thanks to all! Loved the whole series! See you next year!

What an awesome series! Great challenges and fun all round. What amazing competition!

Thank you Fi and Joe for organising the Singletrack series races and how well organised all was and for the great tracks and locations! From now on you can go to races yourself and not only watch others having fun :-)

It was an awesome series- you guys really do put on a great event.

Thanks so much for organising such a great Singletrack Mind series this year. The events were expertly run and a pleasure to race in.

had a great ride at kinross. The track was awesome, as was the whole series. Thanks very much for all your hard work so we could all have fun.

Round 4, Coondoo Road, Nowra

What a cracker of a day! Thank you Fi and Joe for putting on an awesome event!

Well done to the chocolate foot and SCUM crews Great event as usual!

A superb event, lots of fun, smiles, encouragement and mud....Overall it was great. Good work jo, fi and the team!

Thanks for putting on another great day. Fab trails, weather and company.

Thanks Chocolate Foot, great event!!

Thanks Joe, Fi and all the other people that come together to make an event like that happen. Totally scored on the weather!



Round 3, Awaba MTB Park, Cooranbong

Joe and Fi, thank you to you and the usual suspects for running yet another great event, showcasing some amazing tracks. A big thanks also to all the volunteers (special shout to the whooping/cheering ones!!) and HMBA for maintaining such a great sure know how to do a good fire trail climb...;o) and some sweet single track :o) And finally, thank you to all the very kind riders that let me sneak past on the first lap after Jack decided to self-seed us last...(and yes, he's ok)

Hi guys, thanks for another great day on the trails - appreciate all your hard work and effort!

I am still buzzing from the day, looking forward to Round 4 at Condoo Road Nowra at the end of the month.

Thanks for all your great work so far this year. This years events have a great feel to them. There seems to be a lot more new female competitors as well - in addition to your development team members - which is a credit to you both.

The Chocolate Foot events are always a lot of fun, good atmosphere, good people and excellently organised and supported.

Thanks to Chocolate Foot for putting on a great race, the organisation seemed to run perfectly.


Round 2, Maulbrooks MTB Park, Mogo

A big “thank you!” to the Choc Foot team and Eurobodalla Cyclists for bringing us a fantastic race on the amazing trails.  Singletrack Mind is always pencilled in on my calendar, because you get great racing with fast, friendly fields on great trails.  It’s a simple formula for fun.

Great day at Mogo, best STM ever? Probably. Great trails and another quality Chocolate Foot event, thank you

That measured off the Frotho'meter

Thank you so much for a brilliant introduction into the sport. MTB is what everyone says - people are so welcoming and encouraging. From guys offering to car pool, a group of people who let me stay with them last night and a team who allowed me to join them today.

On the track, every single rider was courteous and went out of their way to thank me as they passed or encourage me. I was blown away.

Such a well run event. I can't wait to keep coming back for more and see where my switch to MTB takes me. 

Loved the weather, trail, atmosphere, organisation. Even the portaloos smelt fresh. You ROCK!

Thanks for another awesome day on amazing trails guys!

Joe and Fi have certainly dished out a winning combination by including this venue in their wonderful series, allowing mountain bikers of all levels to experience one of the best tracks NSW has to offer. Without doubt this is a race that will live long in the memory...

Thanks to the Chocolate Foot team for putting on another awesome event and supporting Short Circuit Cancer. See you in two weeks at Awaba.

Thanks to a great race today. As a new comer to the sport I was a bit nervous and intimidated by all theses super fit looking machines, I didn't need to be though as everyone was really cool and polite. Definately a sport you'll see me participating in again

Thanks for organising Chocolate Foot we had a fantastic time! Such a friendly atmosphere and the track was so much fun.

A great day of racing in Mogo y'day! Thanks @chocolatefootAU and the local MTB club for the insanely fun trails! 

Thanks for another awesome day on amazing trails guys!

Thanx Chocolate Foot, Fiona Dick & Joe - for putting on such an epic event. 

Thx for a great event today! Great trail which we really enjoyed!

Extremely appreciative of all that helped me just get out and race today ... Joe Ward & Fiona Dick for helping me race and making us drive 4.5hrs to the best race track I have ever ridden. (seriously get yourself and mates to Mogo) and to all that cheered me on it really helped in the most mentally tough 7hr race today. The MTB family is the BEST.
DAMN that was a tough day!

thanks to the chocolate foot crew, the eurobodalla locals and everyone else for putting on a great event! Thanks Joe and Fiona!

Thanks for a great day! I really enjoyed the course and the company. It was fantastic to see so many good female riders out there too. Thanks Fi and Joe for another fab day out. 

Happy tired legs from the inaugural Mogo @chocolatefootAU round, more please!



Round 1, Kiwarrak State Forest, Taree

Thanks Choccy Team and many many thanks to the tip riders who put together such an awesome track!

As it was my first Chocolate Foot Singletrack race, I was apprehensive about being out on the track and “getting in the way” of the faster riders.

Graeme is a great mentor and has encouraged and taught me a great deal, but I know I have come away from Taree with a lot more knowledge than when I arrived. Being a fast track I was able to sit on people's wheels and learn what they did through different sections. Although I was passed many times, each and every rider was courteous and encouraging.

My fears and worries soon faded and I found my own rhythm and enjoyed what Taree had to offer.

Thanks @chocolatefootAU for a ripper 1st round, love these races!

Thanks Chocolate Foot and Taree Mtb club. The trails were perfect.

I just wanted to thank you guys for such a top day that you put on. Looking forward to the next race thanks again

Thanks Fiona Dick & Joe Ward for putting on such a great event! Looking forward to round two! :)

Awesome day riding some ridiculously fantastic single track. Thanks Chocolate Foot looking forward to Mogo.

How amazing were those trails. Thanks guys for an awesome day of singletrack.

Well done everyone & thanks Joe Ward and Fiona Dick for a great race.

Amazing trails today!!

Worth the long haul! Looking forward to MOGO baby!

Taree trails are WICKED! AWESOME event Joe Ward & Fiona Dick

A huge thank you to the Manning Valley riding club and Chocolate Foot for an awesome race

Tkx guys awesome day on the trails :-)

What a beautiful track.... Awesome day!

I told everyone how awesome this event was last year, I reckon the 4hr event just wouldn't be long enough around the Taree trails. I'll be back next year!

Great event! Thanks Chocolate Foot.

Thanks for a fantastic weekend. Looking forward to Mogo and another great weekend away.

Loved Taree!

Epic fun weekend.
