From all accounts the Ballarat round was a great day of riding. Ok so it got a bit cold and then a bit wet but when it comes to Mountian Biking that’s all part of the fun. We can’t all go having society thinking we are tough because we mountain bike and then only expect to ride in perfect weather. Or we had better all move north!

After the wash out Bendigo have released a new date and now become the final round of the series. Entries will re open soon.
Having ridden a road loop around the Central Victorian area this morning and seen all the flooded paddocks, flowing rivers and ground water running down the roads it was clearly a good idea of the Bendigo club to postpone their Round. This was a tough decision by the club and we appreciate all of your patience with this. As soon as more news on a new date becomes available we will share it and stay tuned for entry information on the Ballarat Round set for Sunday 16th October at Canadian Forest.
The wait is over! Series results after Round 4 of the 2016 Victorian Endurance Series are now online. We have corrected all of the anomalies with double up’s from round 3 but if you find something there please let us know and we will look into it.
You can find the results on the Series page

2016 VES Series Results Following Round 3
What a battle unfolded at the Albury 6hr in the Solo category with Canberra rider Shaun Lewis taking it to the 24hr specialist Tobais Lestrell in what was described as a ding dong battle. Tobais in his post race report said that he just could not hold Shaun down the descents and making up the time on every climb eventual took its toll. But not by much. At the end of the day the two were still on the lead lap covering 125kms and split by under 50 seconds. Wow! That’s almost a sprint in 6hr terms. They actually came 3rd and 2nd overall with only the Torq Merida and MarathonMTB.com teams beating them.
