New MTB event
The growth of mountainbiking has led to a new event in the Teviot Valley. The Roxburgh Multisport Club is behind the Beaumont Station MTB Classic on December 11. Options include a short course of 43km or a 60km course which will take in more of the high country station. Both events start and finish at the Millers Flat hall with registrations from 9.30am and briefing at 10.15, and a $40 entry fee. Entry forms can be found at www.roxmultisport.co.nz. Organiser Tracy Pringle said the race would be a chance for people to see a lot of country not generally open to the public, and she was grateful to station owners Alan and Richard Hore.
