Summer Session Round 2

Posted by Russell Bell, Thursday, 28th January 2016 @ 10:33am

  • The KMBC Summer Sessions have been going from strength to strength with the second round attracting 51 riders with a stack on new faces. The ladies of the dirt had a wonderful showing making up a missive third of the riders! The evening ride was using the long run down Gunjin, Judderbars and Alchemy. There was a lot of chat about bikes and gear pre ride with some showing off there new bike purchases like peacocks trying to attract a mate. The first run couldn't start without the long ride up Brand New Second Hand toward the top of Gunjin. Once reached many took an extended break to build back some energy to attempt the flowy descent.


    Once again riders were able to ride as many runs as they could squeeze in between 6pm and 8pm, with a sneaky few heading off a touch early. Everybody managed to navigate the trails well, only a few unlucky ones having to change tubes after their runs.


    The riding came to an end and food and drinks began suddenly out of nowhere the "bearded madman" smashed out a super fast run well past 8 o'clock leaving everybody cheering with a massive whip under lights over the final double! The crowd settled and the very lucky Darren Grimston managed to score himself the $100 NZO clothing voucher - 
    www.nzoactive.com/au/ . The very generous riders dug deep and donated a heap of notes and loose change to the KMBC youth development scholarship fund. Thanks heaps guys hopefully this will help facilitate the next Jordan Prochyra or Sam Hill.


    The results for round 2 are now available - HERE Also have a few photos from the night on our facebook discussion page - and HERE

    The final round of the Summer Session Series will be on Feb 10th with a double header on Scorpion and Feral Groove (Start/meet at Farrell Grove Carpark) entries are now open at 
    www.kalamundacollective.com.au/pages/summer-night-sessions Be sure to pre register to not only be in the chance to win another $100 NZO voucher, but we will be limiting numbers for this round so first in best dressed.


    Big thanks once again to all that were involved with special thanks to Peter the "SUPER" volunteer, Steve from WA Gravity Enduro for the use of the timing equipment and data collation, NZO clothing for yet another $100 voucher and Terry from Beeliar IGA for the great deal on the food.

    Happy Riding!

Summer Session round 1

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Thursday, 14th January 2016 @ 9:53am

  • So the first Summer Session has been run and it was a great turnout, with 42 riders hitting up the Goldie locks – 3 bears – Mercury Street run. There was a plenty of pre-ride mind games going on and a few rumoured small tweaks (to other people’s bikes/camaelbaks) before the first run, which most managed without lights. 

    The format, allowing as many runs as you like, seemed to not necessarily favour the fastest climbers with many posting there fastest run first up. The strong female contingent kept it pretty tight but I think had the most fun. After a few solid runs we all kicked back with a BBQ and a nice cold brevvie, whilst Frank Marzoli took out the $100 NZO clothing voucher ( www.nzoactive.com/au/

    So the results are now available at Summer Night Sessions

    Registrations now open for both the 27th Jan and the 10th Feb rounds, along with entry into the draw to win a $100 NZO voucher each social ride. 

    Big thanks to all involved particularly Steve of WAGE, NZO (clothing voucher sponsor), “King volunteer “Peter and Siyang for slaving away over the BBQ.

  • Kmbc would like to wish a champion of our club Tony Ratcliffe all the best for the future. Tony has made the decision to live in Manila. Whenever we needed a hand Tony was always there. To thank him for the hundreds of hours volunteer work we decided to throw a surprise ride/bbq for him.
