Paterson All Mountain 2013
Hunter Mountain Bike Association, in conjunction with event sponsor Peter Evans and Associates Solicitors and Attorneys, are set to host the Paterson Super G All Mountain event on Sunday October 20, 2013.
There will be three individual gravity tracks and it will be the fastest combined times that will take the podium spots. Those of you who raced it last year should have fond memories of the "Pearly Gates" track, well it's back in and along for the ride with two new decent runs "Bovine Inspiration" and "The Square Mile".
All racers will be allocated two shuttle uplifts for each track, that is one for a recon run and one more for your race run. Any additional practice runs, time permitting, will require you to make your own way to the top with no private shuttles allowed.
Entry to this class event will be $35 per rider (including race and shuttle fees) and an additional $20 for anyone who does not hold current MTBA membership. Event sign in will be from 8am and the first shuttle runs will begin at 9am. There will be a link posted in the near future on the HMBA website http://www.hmba.asn.au/
for online registration.
In an effort to provide you with minimum shuttle turn around times and maximum ride time all entrants are encouraged to register online prior to the event. Those who pre-register will be given custom race numbers and race day super powers to leap ahead of the "on the day" entrants in both the shuttle and start gate queue.
There will be first aid and a toilet on site. At this stage the event won't be catered so please bring your own lunch and drinks. If you happen to forget, there are options for both only five minutes away in Paterson.
Camping will be available on-site (no amenities however) for race entrants on Saturday night before the race for a small donation to the land owner.
The event venue is on private property and as such cannot be accessed outside of HMBA sanctioned events. Stay tuned here for further event details and a working bee weekend closer to the event date.

It doesn't matter if you ride an 8 inch DH monster, a 6 inch trail bike, or a fully rigid XC machine, this track plays no favourites to anyone. It's a new kind of race for HMBA, so come along and give it a go.
