  • Thanks for the UNE track soil surveys Calvin If you ride the SportUNE trail regularly you will probably have met Calvin who likes to ride (very fast) laps and repeats on small sections.

David Harris (“Harry”) has mapped out an XCO track for the 2014 A@A (31 August) using parts of the Piney Yellow and Black Tracks, forest access roads and the tracks in and out of Charleston Willows. Our job today was to get it ready. Paul B, Steve R., Andrew, Joe, Matt, Angus, Emily, Harry and Peter Ho. cleared the track of forest litter, low branches, dead grass etc. Greg hit it with the leaf blower and removed thousands of pieces of chewed up pinecones left by the black cockatoos. The track was very messy in places. Harry and Andrew also remodeled one gnarly corner into something much more pleasant to ride. David B., Shireen, Calvin and Zig (with the ...
