  • 2014 Queensland State Championships Adare, Gatton 24th August The Northern Inland Academy of Sport (NIAS) Mountain Bike Squad headed north over the weekend to compete in the Queensland Cross Country National Championships being held in Adare just out of Gatton.

Overall it is “so far so good” with our construction but we are still trying to work out what material to use for the tread ...

  • The UNE Hero Dirt gets an aerial weed inspection! After a couple of early morning rolls from 'El Presidente', one being the track inspection variety and the second being a carbo loading 'chiko roll' racing was given the go ahead to race a wet track. The predictions of a flooded weekend failed to materialise and what transpired should be viewed as an inspiration to anyone who loves making 'braap braap' moto noises whilst getting their bike dirty.After the rain, Saturday riders were greeted with a sunny but cool winters afternoon and perfect track conditions. The mud had transitioned into that perfect mix, where moisture and dirt combine into the exact right consistency known as Hero Dirt. You know the stuff, where almost no wrong can be done because ...
