    Default Details of Kinross round of STM

    Hi Mr Pants,

    Do you have any more details of the first round of the Singletrack Mind series. Will there be a video to show people what to expect? I hear Kinross is the most awesome track in NSW! is this true?

    Indeedly we'll do a video but until then check out the photos and video from the Ginja Ninja event from a few weeks ago:

    It's going to be well worth the trip to Orange and there's a stack of other riding in the region if you want to make it a long weekend of sweet singletrack.

    Kinross has evolved into a truly awesome trail network. Smoothish fairly fast flowing pine forest singletrack that never seems to end. Few rocky areas with moderate elevation gains. Just a great network of trails. Lord knows the town sucks ass so the trails are a blessing...

    Maybe to live, but Orange is a great place to visit - great food and wine, the local beer isn't too bad either

    Default Capital Punishment....

    Looks like 2012 is going to be the year of cancellation and rescheduling, we're almost glad we got so much practice in last year! Due to AROC rescheduling their Capital Punishment race to the date of our SRAM Singletrack Mind series Round 1 event we're struggling to see what point there is in running on the same weekend as an event that already has 2000 competitors pre-entered. We imagine that a significant proportion of you may have entered that event and probably want to race most of the STM series as well which puts you and us in an unfortunate predicament.

    We really want this to happen for the cool CWORB club out at Orange and we can guarantee you that the singletrack at Kinross is as good or better than what you'll ride in the CP... and it's been much drier in Orange.

    Also AROC have discussed with us offering a full refund to CP competitors who forward to them their STM Round 1 entry. Also we're thinking of making Orange a bonus points round, where every entrant will receive 40 bonus, equivalent to 5th place.

    To make this decision whether to go ahead we need your feedback so head over to our Facebook page where we have set up a poll or just give us your thoughts in the comments.

    Cheers,

    Big statement Mr Pants with claims Kinross is as good or better than Kowen/majura/stromlo!!

    Hope I can make it up there to experience it. Unfortunately I couldn't make the ninja.

    I'd choose Kinross over those three by a mile.

    Thumbs up Round 1 is go!

    Good news! We couldn't deny you all the opportunity to race the super shweet trails of Kinross so we are pleased to announced that Round 1 on April 29 is officially GO! So if you're entered in Capital Punishment you can either choose to do both events for which you will win a special prize: sore legs! Or if you have a purely Singletrack Mind check out our latest newsletter for details on what you can do about you CP entry. We're pumped for the 3rd edition of the series and entries open on Tuesday so get your teams sorted now!

    Interesting for someone from Bathurst to say that about 'the town',
