Have you tried XCO racing?
Big Hill Events is hosting 2 rounds at Mount Avoca Winery, just 2hrs from Melbourne this weekend.
Its a special venue to Rohin having grown up in Avoca and kept these trails alive for many years now to allow racing such as this.
There are no Day Licenses needed this weekend so very affordable race entry.
Lets not forget that the 100% Organic wine at Mount Avoca Winery is amazing so great chance to have way more than a bike weekend.
Entries open up until 8am each day

Did you know that Big Hill Events is hosting two Cross Country Rounds this weekend at Forrest!
Its all been a bit hectic but with 140 riders turning up tomorrow there will be some great racing.
Riders can still enter and there is no Day License costs so a great way to try this version of the sport.
We are also hosting 2 rounds at Mount Avoca Winery on January 16th and 17th. Great area for a weekend getaway and a spot of wine tasting.

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:
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.

You must be within rules of the DHHS for either work or the 25kms limit from home. We can not encourage any F%*$ Dan bike rides sorry
Ben, Jono and Verita your chocolate is waiting for you. ... See MoreSee Less
Damn, the men's is within 20 seconds of the KOM, but the women's is only 2 seconds slower than the QOM? :O
How did you not eat it all during lockdown?
Shaun we going to hit this
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.

Thanks for the update Rohin and thank you for what you and the BHE team do for the mtb community. Like everyone I also very much look forward to NODs being given! PS slick design and project work

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.
