Despite the weather doing its best to spoil our event; the MaD Sunday Roast, went off like clockwork. The venue is just amazing. Many people are surprised by the features and areas that allow a never-ending choice of course layout.
With the sun shinning and the riders itching to race, things kicked off just after 11 am; having held a minute silence for remembrance Sunday. The new course for this event was around 2 miles long with the leaders lapping around the 8 minute mark. Nic Burridge showed up again and led to the first corner with the rest of the field in hot pursuit.
With not a lot of competition for mountain bike racers in the area, we seem to be attracting some quick boys and girls with the Malvern Cycles riders ripping up the course, 1 of these being Dave Creber who made short work of passing Nic ; but all did not go to plan for Dave.
With the main aim of our events being to attract new riders, it was great to see so many rookie racers, this included Ashleigh Theron-Morris; who had been encouraged to take part by her fellow slam69ers and seemed to enjoy the experience.
The riders had some rather damp areas to cope with but thankfully everyone seemed to take it all in their stride.
Punctures were to play a part in the event with a hidden piece of metal fence post appearing during the race and catching some out, this included our early race leader, Dave Creber but with true racing spirit Dave carried on for 2 further laps and still managed 2nd place.

All in all again another great event and a great precursor to the next round on December 1st.
We’d like to thank everyone for taking parts and all of our helpers, whom without these events could not happen. Thanks guys.
As mentioned our next event is not far away. Keep up to date on our website
