Lost Something?

We have uploaded pics of the lost property handed in during the event to our Facebook page.

If its yours, then please email info@corc24hour.com.au and we can figure out how to get it back to you.

 

Photos are Up!

Dominik and crew had a great time photographing the Scott. As they departed on their way back to Sydney on Sunday evening, Dominik was setting himself up to start processing the thousands of photos they took during the race while someone else did the driving. That’s some serious commitment!

The results are the tip-top images we have come to love from Sportograf. They are searchable via your raceplate or, you can checkout the Best Of gallery.

The big question!

No! Not *that* big question! I’m far too old and broken to get down on one knee!
 
Yes, the Scott is most definitely happening! The weather forecast for this week looks to be spot-on for the trails to dry out (well, after tomorrow!), and the weekend forecast is looking dandy for a 24 hour race!
 
After much discussion, derision and debate, we have decided that getting a bit of recycling going on would be wise; hence we will be using the course from last year. Not as fun as we were hoping to make it, but we see it as the best choice given the extraordinary rainfall we have received!There may be some small diversions if a few dry days doesn’t sort things out, but the course will still be mucho singletrack!

Stromlo is wet, there is no doubt about it, but we spent a few hours out there today, working on drainage where we can. There are a few spots that need some serious work, the top of Western Wedgetail and the mid point of Muck Raker being two. Makin’ Trax will be working on those two trails tomorrow or Wednesday so please respect any trail closures you come across, it is all in the best interest of your race!
 
Entries are open, if you haven’t already, get your mates together and get yourselves to Canberra for the 8/9 October!

Scott Camping

Hi All,

If you’re wondering where you can camp at the Scott, please refer to the attached image!We will have limited camping on the Thursday night, by prior arrangement with the event organisers. Camping is free on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

The lower part of the crit track is reserved for solos only, with pairs accommodated on the lowest area if space allows. The high area above transition is open to schools and teams on a first served basis.

An area of the car park will be cordoned off for vans, with extra spaces reserved for those paying for a powered van site. The area around the DH finish is for team camping.

The spots above the 4X track may still be quite soggy!

Please be very careful in taking cars off the roads. scott_2016-campingWe’ll most likely be able to pull you out if you’re bogged, but it’ll cost you!

The Weather…

Hi All,

We have understandably had a few nervous questions about the weather and we certainly understand that you are feeling the strain…

Looking at the long range forecasts we are confident that the Scott will be good to go. One advantage of Stromlo is that it can tolerate the rain pretty well and if it all goes pear shaped we can look to delay, cancel or reschedule. Those on the crit track have an added bonus under their feet!

We will make a firm announcement on Monday of next week, once we have seen the predictions. Until then, entries are open and we look forward to seeing you there!

Rider List and Results

As always, we’ll be using CORC’s RaceResult timing to provide you with live results which also provides the rider list.

Entries are open, and we look forward to seeing you all at Stromlo Forest Park on 8/9 October!

The Right Tools For The Job!

As you know, one of the Scott’s oldest friends is the crew from GU Energy. The GU satchels are a ubiquitous staple of MTB racing. Providing energy in a convenient little packet when and where you need it.

GU have been developing new products such as their chews to give you some options and variety than just the satchels. Latest out of the GU Enerhy Labs is the Stroopwafle, a tasty alternate to their other products that GU tell us have been;

“Created for daily use before and during training and competition, the new GU Energy Stroopwafel delivers all the nutrients needed to power your performance: quality carbohydrates (immediate and long-lasting energy from complex and simple carbohydrates), essential amino acids (prevent mental fatigue and repair muscle damage during long-duration activities), and electrolytes (replenish what’s lost when you sweat). The Stroopwafel is made with a layer of delicious syrup between two thin wafers, and it’s individually packaged to make it portable and easy to take on a ride or run.”

GU have their gels, chews and the Stroopwafle available in their online store right now, or you can get your hands on them at the Scott.

While the solo category is hotting up to be a fantastic tussle, the team’s medals are wide open for competition. So get your mates together and come join GU, Scott and a bevvy of other sponsors like Mitas Tyres, Aussie Butt Cream, and Nitelights to celebrate Scott’s 18th at Stromlo Forest Park on 8-9 October!

Entries are open, so get your mates together and get started!

Stromlo and The Rain

As many of you would know, the ACT, like much of eastern Australia, has had a pretty wet winter and spring is looking much the same (but a bunch warmer!). We have had a few questions about how we’ll handle the race if we have significant wet weather in the lead up.

Firstly, Stromlo handles the wet weather really well. The trails will mostly drain and dry out pretty quickly. Those sections that have developed soaks or bogs, which can’t be fixed by Makin’ Trax before race day, can be diverted without removing too much fun! The camping areas are generally pretty good at staying dry enough, with only a few spots being unsuitable.

Secondly, on the occasion that we do have to cancel or reschedule in the lead up to the event, we’ve got you covered. We will endeavour to find a favourable date to reschedule to, but if you can’t make that p, then you will be refunded, as covered under the relevant consumer laws.

We have less than four weeks to go until race day! We look forward to seeing you there!
