HUSKY 2014 POSTPONED

Once again the Shoalhaven region, along with a substantial proportion of the East Coast of Australia, has been the subject of a severe weather event that has seen storms affecting the entire region.  In the 8 full days of December thus far, more than 1/6th of the average annual rainfall has fallen on the local region.

Unfortunately, from our perspective, this means that we have 'picked' four major weather events in the five year history of the Husky.  This year has proven to be the toughest for us, as the majority of the rainfall occurred at least one week prior to the event date, and given the event is in December, the chance of warm weather had left us with a glimmer of hope that the trails may dry quicker than they have in past years.

We have attempted to delay this decision for as long as possible so that we can give the course every chance to be ready, while also making the decision as early as possible so that we can give all participants ample notice as to whether it was going to proceed or not.
 
Following final inspections in conjunction with the local Mountain Bike Club (SCUM) and the Callala RSL Country Club, and given the forecasted increased chance of rain in the days leading up to the event date, all parties are convinced that it is in no ones interest to ride the trails this weekend.  There is still substantial amounts of water pooled over the trails all around the course.  The Callala RSL, with the Golf Course currently shut, has completely retracted their permit for us to host the event on their grounds.  Needless to say, this was the decisive factor in our decision.

We have never viewed the complete cancellation of an event as a valid option and, as in the past, we will postpone the event to a later date.  Unfortunately, with the current proximity to Christmas, we are unable to announce a new date until after the Christmas holiday period.

Thank you to all of our landowners and stakeholders who have been very supportive over the last few days.  Like us, they are keen to see people come to the Shoalhaven Region and enjoy the wonderful riding experience that it has to offer – under dry conditions.  The South Coast United Mountain Bikers have been working hard on their trails this year, and have been enthusiastically talked about how well the trails have been riding in the months leading up to the event.
 
A few notes with regard to the rescheduling of events:

 

  • Everyone with valid entries for this weekends event will have their entries transferred across to the new date, when announced.
  • Those participants that had been requesting a refund AFTER our refund eligibility date of the 22nd of November, still have a valid entry.
  • If you have purchased a jersey, we are happy to post the jerseys out early OR you may still pick them up at race registration on the new date.  If you want your jersey posted to you, please email us with the appropriate postal address.
  •  As with all of our past postponements, for riders who cannot make the new date we offer free transfers of your entry to another rider.  Obviously this option will not be applicable until we have announced the new date. 

 

What Now?

Chill out, relax and have a great Christmas.  We will send out another update on or before the 14th of January, once we have had a chance to organise a new date.  At this time we will advise you on how to transfer your entries to another rider IF you are unable to make the new date.

Apologies for the bad news, however we are sure that everyone understands that we cannot control the weather.  We look forward to seeing you in 2015.

 

Even more great single-track at this years Husky100

A massive weekend here at Husky HQ. In the course of finalising this years routes, we've been able to tweak here, add there, and we're very pleased with the changes that we've come up with for the Husky100.

After losing some trail last year and losing a few km's off the Husky100 course, we now estimate that this years course will be about 101km. To be confirmed!

The Husky50 remains relatively unchanged from last year, heading to the North side of Forest Rd again, to take in the trails of Super Bowl & Butterfly Track.

The route for the participation ride remains unchanged from last year.

Remember, there's only a little over 1 week left to get your entries in, and with less than 140 entries remaining to this years event, it's very worthwhile getting your entries in sooner rather than later.

 

EVERYONE RELAX! - It's a race report from team "everyone relax"

24 November 2013 iAdventure Race Report – Everyone Relax

Pre Event

I’m not sure really where it all started.  Perhaps it was Kath’s decision to compete in her first 10km fun run this year, which then led to some focused training and the conversion of Kath into a genuine runner (with a natural style and stride consistency that makes me truly jealous!). Maybe it was the orienteering and rogaining Kath has done over the past few years. Maybe it was the training she did with That’s Cray when we were training for XPD. Or maybe after supporting me at enough races, including the tough gig of crewing a few geoquests, Kath finally just decided she may as well compete rather than wait around at the event hub.

Sydney Adventure Race Report - Paul Grundy

IAdventure Narrabeen Race 29 September 2013.

Teams "Hurry Up Dad" and "Come On Mum".

Once again the weather gods were shining their sunny light upon Narrabeen for the IAdventure Race.

In conversation earlier in the week my wife had offered that I race off with Rebecca in tow and complete the course, and she would “plod along”, with Alicia. That conversation ended very abruptly when I mentioned that if this were the case then she would need to navigate – response was OMG, you mean with a map and compass, so it was quickly decided we would complete the race alongside each other.

Race Report - Australia's Next Top Models

Australia’s Next Top Models were excited to be racing in their final event of the year.  The team for this race consisted of father and son Pete and Murphy.  At 11 years old, it was to be Murphy’s first race and it’s fair to say he was a little nervous about what was in store for him in the week leading up to the race.  After arriving at Tin Hut and collecting the registration kit, Murphy was bemused and perhaps a  little distracted from final race preparations after a visit to the ‘long drop’ style toilet.  Rather surprisingly the smell was not enough to put him off and he would make another visit post race as well….
