Pilbara News - - Pilbara | Sport - Amanda Ewin

Cape Range Rid­ers in Ex­mouth hosted Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club over the WA Day long week­end, leav­ing lasting im­pres­sions of the Ex­mouth moun­tain bik­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

More than 30 rid­ers, in­clud­ing chil­dren, ven­tured to Ex­mouth and joined the lo­cal club for the first time, tak­ing part in three so­cial rides on a va­ri­ety of trails.

BMBC’s RaceTec tim­ing equip­ment was used for a time trial on the Cape Range Rid­ers Time Trial Loop.

Kar­ratha rid­ers were treated to an evening bar­be­cue at Town Beach fol­lowed by a Sun­day morn­ing ride on the Thomas Carter Trail, a 9km loop with some epic views of the rugged Cape Range.

Those that could not make it took to the Yara Dr Bayn­ton six-hour course to prac­tise their skills for the re­lay event, which is rapidly ap­proach­ing on June 17.

This event is open to any­one, from se­ri­ous to so­cial rid­ers, who can choose the 10km loop or a ju­nior and so­cial shorter loop.

The race be­gins at 3pm and more than 140 rid­ers are ex­pected to take part.

En­tries are now open via the web­site at bur­rupmtb.com.

This week­end is the fifth race of the cham­pi­onship sea­son — a night race rid­ing the so­cial loop of the six-hour course in prepa­ra­tion for the Yara Dr Bayn­ton event.
