The Jet Black NSW All Schools XC MTB Championship was hosted by the Western Sydney Mountain Bike Club (WSMTB) at Yellomundee this weekend. Two hour skills clinics were held on the Saturday, with several riders from the local racing community coming along to pass on some wisdom and teach about 70 kids of different skill levels new ways of attacking the course.
It’s really exciting to see so much enthusiasm growing for the sport, and to see so many riders keen to improve what are already enviable skills. There were also about 30 females registered to race on the Sunday which also is a super exciting sign of times to come. I’d like to say a big thank you to Dave, Ray and Alex from WSMTB, and all the other volunteers involved for pulling this event together.
