How Exciting. With the 25km limit we know many of you must be chomping at the bit to have a crack at the Ginger Ninja XC loop in the Willsmear section of the Yarra Trials. To spur you on, we are offering rewards for your efforts. But you have to earn it!
You have to beat these times: Men's 7:15 Women's: 8:20
If you beat this time (you must ride the course properly, no strava shortcuts thanks) and send us the link you then Win a block of hand made, custom logo Big Hill Events Chocolate from the Mildura Chocolate Company .
By doing this, you will be helping Rohin, the BHE director. This collection of Chocolate at the start of the 2nd lockdown was alot bigger. With none of these events likely within the chocolate use by date his been trying to reduce the stock the only way possible : EATING IT.
So help him out. If you make the time please email Rohin at Big Hill Events. Chocolate pick up is at the Big Hill Events office in Richmond.
Things have really hotted up today in the Ginger Ninja Challenge. First Paul van der Ploeg - Cyclist goes and smashes the time to take the KOM and then David Kier jumps into 3rd.
Both earing the Choccies. But what will happen in the arvo session?? And Dave, 3 seconds of breaking the 7m barrier. Surly this needs a 2nd shot
yay. choccy for me. Sent you guys an email. thanks 😀
I can't ride yet cos my damn broken wrist still isn't healed enough. Do you perhaps have a trail run target time instead? 😁 can't run to save myself but would give it a crack.
All we can do as an event organiser during this time is keep in contact with our land managers / owners and be ready to pull the trigger on an event if the proverbial NOD gets given. But I tell you if feels very much unlikely that NOD will happen as our state government drives the race for elimination without actually staying it.
So we wait.
Luckily for Big Hill Events, its never been about making money. In fact BHE has never posted a profit in 12 years of operation. I (Rohin Adams, Director) am a building design and owner of a small building and interior design company called Two Design. Events has always been as a fellow rider about trying to bring more to the community and sport I love. We do however really feel for all those who were employed in the event management space as well as hospo, retail and other casual workers who have been without income since March. Once events can continue we will be here to not only provide events but also help spread the word and attend as many others as we can. Its a community and we look forward to enjoying it again with you all.
Its WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MTB WEEKEND! The XCO action starts tonight at 9:30 our time with Bec Henderson lining up in the womens. Then 11:30 tonight is the mens throwdown with Dan McConnell facing a pretty big task but as his form is coming back should get a good result for Australia. Go Dan and Bec!
Another plug for the Wiggle Sticks XC race pack. When we get some racing happening we will be giving some of these away. Until then though well worth the investment in case of a wiggly stick bite. www.wigglesticks.cc... See MoreSee Less
Have you heard of Wiggle Sticks? Made here in Melbourne by fellow rider Russell Kerr out of recycled tubes they come with a snake bite compression bandage. Pictured here on all my bikes is the XC Race pack version. Its a bit smaller and comes with 2 bandages, but I am running it with one bandage, 2 CO2, 2 tyre leavers and a multi tool. I've been trail testing these for a year now and the latest models are spot on! Plus at $35 they are super cheap and look cool! Get on it peeps and avoid the wiggly things on the trails where ever possible.
