The Gippsland mtb club put on an amazing race once again attracting a strong field of contenders including Jason Archer the World 24 hr Masters 45-49 Champion and super respectfully 6th in the World outright! And in the Womens Kate Penglase 4th in the World! But did you spot the young kid ripping up the 3hr? Kian Lerch-Mackinnon is about to take on the World XCO Championships in Under 23 and won both the hr on Satruday and then backed it up to win the A Grade mens CX race on Sunday. Best of luck Kian.
The race in the 6hr was won with a strong show by Tyla Windham with come back king Tobias Lestrell getting 2nd and Jason Archer taking 3rd.
There were lots of battles through the fields as we now crest the past the half way point in the series. All eyes not look to Round 5 at Andy’s Trail network Blores Hill.

Jason Archer here seen negotiating one of the rock gardens
This Saturday after a 2 month break the Victorian Endurance Series returns with the ever popular Blores Hill rounds hosted by the Gipplsand MTB club.
This course has something for everybody with great flowing single track, gradual climbs and a few rock gardens to that come with a view.
Boasting over $2000 in cash and prizes the big hitters are sure to be there but with this brilliant course and race atmosphere its really a round for the masses. Get your entry in via this LINK

Did you know you were among the company of a WORLD CHAMPION?
Yesterday, just weeks after his win at the Wembo World 24hr Solo champs in his ‘older’ Man category tough nut Jason Archer took the win in the 40+ Category. His fellow World Champs hitters also competing in the series were either still sunning themselvs in Italy or finding it hard to drag themselves onto the bike just yet (sensibility so some may say) But not Mr Archer. Is it because his Ginger??
Here is what his Facebook post said
“Good times yesterday racing the Crazy 6hr at the You Yangs hosted by GMBC who did another cracking job. Ridiculous amounts of pedalling done and just under 160kms for the day. Top job by old mate Jason Archer for taking the win and huge respect to Richard Read on 3rd, poor bloke hasn’t got his own class so has to race with the young pups. Massive shout out to Tyla Windham who gave it the berries for the overall solo win, so good to see your progress mate. Shotz sports nutrition kept me going all day, they are the bomb. Can’t wait for the next one!”

Round 3 is now just 2 weeks away and entries are open and filing.
The CRAZY 6 at the You Yangs is one for the KM counters with its flat fast course always seeing some pretty big figures and high average speeds.
With their separate 3hr and 6hr event courses this is a very unique event to the series.
