Round 4, Welby - Rescheduled to 3 November

Update: Saturday 19 October, 9.00pm

Dear Singletrackers

Many thanks for your understanding and your patience over the postponement of Sunday's SRAM Singletrack Mind Series race at Welby while we've been working hard to find a suitable date for its reschedule.

We'd like to say a massive thank you to our host club SHCC who have been awesome! While it's a bummer not to run the race this weekend, we support the council's decision as keeping you guys safe is always our utmost concern. Really, it's just a bike race and plenty of people in the Blue Mtns, Lithgow and just north of the Highlands have and will be dealing with far more pressing problems this week.

So, drumroll please ... the new date for Round 4 of the SRAM Singletrack Mind Series is Sunday 3 November at Welby. It's soon, we know, but that's the only date that the club and our service providers could manage.

What to do now? If you're able to attend, then you don't need to do anything. All current entries will be transfered to the new date, any merchandise you have ordered will be available at the event, and you'll hear more from us in the days before the event. If your MTBA membership happens to expire between now and then, please renew it (the entry system does a check with MTBA on expired memberships).

If you or some of your team members are unable to attend, we are offering three options:

  • Substitute: Substitute rider or riders in your team, or transfer your entry to another rider or team - this transfer must be completed by the new date's closing date (midnight on 30 October 2013) and sort out the financials between you. Please see our website for info on how to change your entry.

  • Refund: Notify us that you are unable to attend, and the reason why, and we will refund 50% of your entry fee. If you have purchased any merchandise and wish for that to be refunded, we are happy to do so. If you'd still like this merchandise, we can arrange to mail it to you. How?

  • Transfer: As for previously rescheduled events, we've decided to flex the rules of our refund policy a little. We're offering to transfer your entry (and merchandise ordered) to Round 5 at Kinross on 24 November. How? To arrange this, you must This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you have any questions about anything above, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We have re-opened entries to the event, so if you know of anyone who is keen to race at Welby but couldn't make last weekend, please let them know the news!

Thanks again for your support and we look forward to seeing you all at Welby on 3 November!
