InterWinter Rd1 done - here comes Rd2!

Were you there last Sunday at Creswick for the first round of InterWinter 2013??   What a perfect day (not a drop of rain!)  and fun Enduro laps around the golf course at the Novotel.    Check out all the results here!
So it’s time to get ready for the next InterWinter round – Castlemaine, at the Pineys on Sunday 16th June for an XCO (multi-lap race) and Super D (Individual timed short course).

Need a race partner or social ride friend?

Our 'Team Mate Finder' had some teething problems, but it's all fixed now and ready to go! :-)

If you're looking for a team or partner for anything; VES, S.H.I.T.S, Club Events, or just a social ride after work or on the weekend, (maybe even a bit of internet mtb dating!) POST IT HERE!
The information will come up on the screen for public viewing, and people that are interested can login to find your contact details and hookup with you for whatever event you've advertised.
Give it a go - we think you'll find it very handy! :-) It's under the EVENTS tab.
