An Epic Adventure In The Wild Mountains That Make The Dial Range

To eliminate an epic liaison stage between the Leven River and Mt Dial we have made the decision to run this event over 2 days.

Day 1 - Consists of Stage 1 on the legendary trails in Marcelo's backyard and Stage 2 will start from the top of Mt Dial and descend all the way back to near the MTB park. 

For the adrenaline junkies, we will then have a slope style contest on the crazy features at the Penguin MTB Park before calling it a day.

Day 2 - Start and finish at the Gnomon Farm. Stage 3 will be the one for the speed freaks on the Sth Duncan trail then stage 4 will be the epic descent from near Mt Duncan to the Leven river. This stage is raw, steep in places and ENDURO AS. . . . . You know what.  The perfect finish to an epic adventure near the sleepy coastal town of Penguin.

EVENT SCHEDULE

Day 1 - Saturday - 16km + practice laps at Marcelo's

Day 1 car parking - There is very limited parking at Marcelo's. Please park at the MTB park and commute to Marcelo's (5 minutes). If you have family/friends attending to give you a good heckle and show some stoke, then you are welcome to park at Marcelo's. If you turn up to Marcelo's with competitors only you will be turned around so please take note. Saturday's proceedings will finish at the MTB park.

In order to manage numbers on the top of Mt Dial and ensure minimal impact, we are going to split into 2 groups on Day 1. Group one will race stage 1 and group 2 will race stage 2 before swapping. A start list will be available prior to the event to highlight which group you are in. Both groups will meet at the Penguin MTB Park post race.

Round 1 - Hobart

After the smoking success of 2016, we are going to kick off the season with a lap around the mountain. The event will be hosted once again on the doorstep of the Cascade Brewery. The course is yet to be confirmed but it will most likely be very similar to our last adventure down south. Huge shout to the land managers for their enthusiasm in helping us put this one together again. Entries open soon

We have teamed up with Cascade Brewery, Hobart City Council and the Wellington Trust to bring you an event of epic proportion. Set on the majestic slopes of kunanyi / Mt Wellington and based out of the iconic Cascade Brewery, this event will be one to remember. With a slick combination of cruise and race stages, your day will be a tough one, but one to savour for the ages. 

This event will start and finish on the doorstep of the iconic landmark that is the Cascade Brewery. From there we will ascend the lower slopes of the mountain before linking together some classic "Special" stages and "Cruise" stages as we make our way back to base. The "Special Stages" that we have included will keep even the fastest pinner entertained for well over 20min of race time. Yeehaa!!

The first climb of the day is a corker. From Cascade to The Springs via the dirt should be enough motivation to keep the legs turning during these colder months. But remember what goes up, must come down, and what a descent it will be!!

JUNIORS (U15)

Junior riders can catch a shuttle up the second half of the first climb. This will cut out about 400m of climbing.

2.00pm - Event presentations (or when everyone is finished)

A big shout out to the Wellington Trust, Hobart City Council and the quality Australians at Cascade Brewery for their assistance in getting this one off the ground.

ROUND 3 HEADS SOUTH
kunanyi / Mt Wellington - October 2016

Riders have spoken and we have listened. "GET AN EVENT TO HOBART!!!" they said, so we have teamed up with Cascade Brewery, Hobart City Council and the Wellington Trust to bring you an event of epic proportion. It has been quite a lot of work to bring all this together but it will all be worth it as we bring to southern Tasmania what they have been craving for so long. Set on the majestic slopes of kunanyi / Mt Wellington and based out of the iconic Cascade Brewery, this event will be one to remember. With a slick combination of cruise and race stages, your day will be a tough one, but one to savour for the ages.

Course Overview

Distance - 27km                 Elevation Gain 1200m

 

Rnd 3 will start and finish on the doorstep of the iconic landmark that is the Cascade Brewery. From there we will ascend the lower slopes of the mountain before linking together some classic "Special" stages and "Cruise" stages as we make our way back to base. The "Special Stages" that we have included will keep even the fastest pinner entertained for well over 20min of race time. Yeehaa!!

The first climb of the day is a corker. From Cascade to The Springs via the dirt should be enough motivation to keep the legs turning during these colder months. But remember what goes up, must come down, and what a descent it will be!!

In order to obtain the quality stages there is a requirement for some serious elevation gain in the form of 1200m. Although when compared to the last EWS round, where riders climbed 2300m, ours pales in significance, but we still realise that it may be too much of a challenge for some. We want to make the event as achievable as possible for everyone so we have put the following 3 steps in place

1 - We have extended the cutoff time to 5 hours instead of the standard 4
2 - Refreshments will be available from the top of the first climb
3 - We have included a SPORT category where riders can catch a shuttle for a significant part of the climb. Riders will stay in their normal category but their results will be listed beneath those that have completed the full course.

Sport Category

As mention above we will be offering a sport category to support those that genuinely do not think they will be able to make it up the climb. Sport riders will receive a shuttle for the second part of the days major climb eliminating around 400m of elevation gain. Sport riders will stay in their original category but their results will be listed below those that complete the full course.

If you have already entered and you would like to take up the sport category uplift option please email kingmillerevents@westnet.com.au with your intent and bring $10 cash on the day. If you are yet to sign up then you can pay for this option online. 

JUNIORS (U17)

Junior riders can catch a shuttle up the second half of the first climb. This will cut out about 400m of climbing.

Course Overview

Trail Notes and Mt Montgomery Map

DESCRIPTION

Persistence has paid off and we now have an incredible new venue on the NW Coast to make the 2016 series truly STATEWIDE!! 

The Dial Range is a stunning wilderness experience. This course includes epic race stages that will take you from mountain tops to riverbanks via dense bushland on old fire roads and narrow trails.

These trails are different to anything we have raced on before. No sculpted MTB specific single trails here, these trails are OLD SCHOOL!! Including fast open sections, rock gardens, creek crossings, natural berms that will hold you at 30-40km/h, water bar launching pads and much more to keep you entertained all the way to the finish line. Add to this the scenic views from the ridges and mountain tops along the course and this is going to be a day that you will never forget. 

SATURDAY SOCIAL EVENTS

On Saturday, we will have social activities at 2 venues. From 12-2pm the Cradle Coast MTB Club will host riders at the Penguin MTB park for a session at their incredible jumps park. This unique set of jumps that are unlike anything you will see anywhere. Whilst this air time is happening the club will put on a BBQ at the viewing platform. For those who have not seen the viewing platform it is an elevated area that overlooks the jumps and perfect place to relax and enjoy spectating. Then from 2pm, those that have signed up  will ride from here to Marcelo's. Local trail building legend Marcelo Cardona has agreed to open up his backyard for us to experience. It's an amazing place and we are truly privileged to have this opportunity. In Marcelo's spare time (I am surprised he has any) he likes to play Spielberg. Check out a couple of his quality edits below to get the adrenaline pumping.

COMPETITOR INFORMATION  - HERE

What better way to kick off the season than by getting nostalgic and revisiting and old favourite. Based around the legendary Juggernaut, Hollybank is a gravity fiends paradise. With its unique mix or technical terrain and flat out fun stuff , it is unlike anything else on offer in Tassie and has put quite a few eager mainland MTBers on big birds en route to come and sample its goodness. Combine Juggernaut with the flow and g-force inducing berms of Tall Timbers and you have the perfect venue for a great day of Gravity Enduro racing. So get your mates together, lets kick off the season with a bang and get some points up in the overall 2016 series early on. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!
