Wow... OUR BIGGEST Friday night race EVER with over 120 participants and our first ever e-Bike race at Lysterfield Park!! We had 5 registrations for the e-Bike category!.

Pictures can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Lysterfieldmtb/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1925426810827837

Thanks to everyone who attended for making the race awesome. It's great to see the community growing and to see so many riders enjoying the trails at Lysty.

A huge thank you to all of our volunteers who assisted with the race centre set up, course set up, rego/race plate check in, timing, packing up. You're a bunch of legends.

A massive thank you to the Willara Venturers for there delicious BBQ and to Lorraine from StopnGo Coffee Page for making some delicious beverages.

As always, thanks to the great team at Life of Bikes for their continued support in this series. Providing prizes and offering e-bikes to demo for the race is an awesome addition. If you haven't been to Life of Bikes, make sure you show them your support as our races wouldn't be as awesome without them.

We have had some frustrating complications in regards to the timing of last night's race and are currently working hard to see if anything can be solved for the results, but it isn't looking promising. We'll have an update around this later to see what we can offer to everyone who raced last night.

If you enjoyed yourself last night, be sure to check out Round 2 on the 9th November - rego will open the Monday before the race.

Cheers crew!

Photos thanks to Praveen!

Dear FFLL October 26th participant,

Unfortunately, our Event electronic timing was unavailable for round one. As you know all these events are run by volunteers giving up their time and sometimes there are other commitments.

We used our regular back up timing system (Racesplitter App), however we haven’t used this for 12 months and the two volunteers with experience in this app both had work commitments for this round so a few new people stepped in to help out, despite their best efforts we endured some technical issues and only received the first lap of information for each participant. So, let’s call it a one lap dash event and we have compiled these details to share with you here.

We apologise for this situation and are disappointed the technology has let us down in this result. All the volunteers put in a large amount of effort on these events and we know timing is a key part. We will ensure we expand our knowledge of this back up system for future use.
We have included the first lap results here on the forum, see attached files.

Thanks so much for your support,

LDTR Crew.

FFLL Round 4 Friday 14th DEC UPDATE - RACE CANCELED

As the sole volunteer MTB trail crew at Lysterfield Park, LDTR has decided to cancel the last round of the FFLL race series rescheduled for this Friday due to the unprecedented amount of rain forecast for Thursday and Friday. We want to set best practice when it comes to caring for our trail network and we hope other users do too.

All registrations will be offered full refunds or a transfer to the next FFLL race series. Please contact us for a refund.

On behalf of the LDTR committee, we wish you a Merry Christmass and a Happy New Year!

Keep the rubber side down

LDTR
