Hot on the heels of JetBlack MTB Racing's announcement that they're coming to the PBM HARDROCK 6HR MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE with up to 50 of their team riders, comes another sterling bit of news from one of this region's powerhouse development squads and race teams.
ARMIDALE 2 WHEEL ACADEMY, having recently run selection for their ELITE and LOCAL race teams, will make the PBM the first event of their racing calendar!
We caught up with Team Director David Harris recently to find out more.
MGLTR: Hi Dave, thanks for talking to us! We hear you're bringing the team over for the Hardrock. Tell us more.
Dave: We've picked our Elite and Local teams, and now we're ready to have our first hit-out for the season. What better way to do this than at the PBM!
MGLTR: Thanks for the vote of confidence! Why have you chosen the PBM as the first event in the team's race calendar for 2017/2018?
We love the PBM HARDROCK 6HR because the Tippies look after everyone as though they are local. The Tracks are fast and flowy and the weather is warm.
MGLTR: Sounds about right! What's your plan for the race?
Dave: As most of our team members are junior aged, we'll be running them into teams to smash out some hot laps. We hope to see all the coastal juniors racing around to see how they fare against our 'high country kids'!
MGLTR: Awesome! How about the announcement that JetBlack Racing will be fronting up with a considerable field of racers, including juniors?
Dave: Three words - BRING. IT. ON.
So there you have it folks, there's two teams now confirmed for the start line of the PBM HARDROCK 6HR MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE. Things are certainly starting to hot up around the joint! Of course, don't forget that the race, held over the weekend of 19/20 August 2017 is for ALL levels of competitors, and there is SOOOO much more going on, not just the race!
