Welli Mills Update

Hi all,

Things have been moving along behind the scenes in relation to Welli Mills rehabilitation and getting the tracks up and running again. We expect to be able to announce a track day out there soon. At this track day there will be team leaders who will supervise groups of people working on sections of track to get everything back to adequate condition. Whilst we will be attempting to largely recreate existing tracks, we do have some approvals for exciting variations.

It is critically important that nobody builds anything out at Welli Mills unless it is expressly done through Peel – Peel has the approvals and must supervise the work. Any illegal track and feature building slows down the whole process.

Illegal tracks and features will be destroyed, and it will probably have to be destroyed by the club. This will take time away from us building legitimate tracks out there which is worse for everyone. So please dont do it.

If you know of anyone planning to or currently building anything please let them know as we dont want to spend days destroying stuff before we can start building again. Those individuals will be welcome at the official build days.

Cheers

2015 Calendar

The 2015 Calendar is now live and dates are confirmed!
race callendar small 2015


We start the season with a Gravity Skills and Development day to get everyone ready for the upcoming season and allow beginners or new entrants to see what downhill and enduro racing is all about. There will be demo bikes and more at this event. The following day you can test what youve learnt for real at the first DH Club race of the series.

Once again we are running a Club race and a State Series. The Club races are designed to be simple and low cost and more suited to beginners. The State Series is the pinnacle of high performance gravity racing in Western Australia.

The event locations were challenging this year due to a combination of our favourite locations being logged all at once (Welli Mills, Nannup, Dwellingup) but we are confident that everyone will be stoked with the courses we have lined up. Once Welli Mills is thinned we will need to work hard to get the tracks rehabilitated prior to the races. Trail maintenance days will be advertised as soon as we can do it.

State Championships are once again at Goat Farm which cant be beaten in terms of spectator and supporter access as well as proximity to Perth.

And the season ends with the Roller Enduro race at Pemberton Mountain Bike Park – held over two days and incorporating the end of year dinner and presentations on the Saturday night.

We look forward to seeing you back out racing in 2015!
