Inspired by Matthew Acklands race report, I’ve decided to post my thoughts on my own performance in the twelve hour version of the Bike SA Dirty Weekend. I always intended to analyse and critique my preparation and performance but making it available for all to read is a great way to encourage others to reflect on their own performances. With a little bit of time and effort we can learn a lot from ourselves and I know first hand just how easy it is to simply walk away from an event, taking outcomes or results at par value.

The guided track walk and pre-ride for is on again at Willunga, designed specifically for beginners, novice racers or anybody a little nervous about getting down the track! It will happen before the Saturday Practice session at 8am sharp.
The session will include a track walk guided by Tyson Schmidt, followed by a slow ride down the course with coaching through the most technical bits.
Head for the Hills, along with Inside Line Mountain Bike Club, will be offering a guided track walk and pre-ride to beginner riders throughout the 2018 race season. These group sessions are designed for riders who are new to the sport or riders who feel they need some help getting down the track. They are not for riders looking at improving their times simply to snag a place on the podium!
This weekend plays host to Round One of Inside Line’s Giant Adelaide South Australian State Downhill Series which will be held on the “Secret Connection” trail at Fox Creek. Although the trail is short, it is steep and technical with a fast finish line sprint section. At 8am on Saturday, Tyson Schmidt will lead a group track walk before helping the group ride down the course in a safe and controlled manner.
The track will be open for others to walk from 8:30am.
There are limited places so please book your place when you register to race. If you have already signed up to race, please contact us to book your spot.
