    Yep, got called off this morning.

    Might go down and do KotB instead - not really MX training, but a lot better than sitting at home. They reckon the track is looking OK.

    And the planets have aligned.

    Depends on numbers but they have been running A & B together and C on their own.
    Watch the website with all this rain they will probably cancel.

    I would have entered c grade lites but they won't let you on a 250 2T. The A & B grade lites would grind me into the Canberra clay.

    If the planets align, I will be there to try to remember how to race MX before the VMX titles in a few weekend's time. Lites & O35s.

    Thanks, Had a look at Ballaballa one and it looked real rocky, Is it?

    Thanks again for those directions,

    Is forest gate open every weekend? if so how much generally?

    Both Forestgate and Ballallaba Springs have MX tracks. Neither is total rubbish, but I prefer the Ballallaba one.

    Both are typical private MX tracks, in that they are a bit one-lined and are hard-packed and dusty (or one-lined and slippery in the wet).

    I think the directions to Larbert are earlier in this thread, bt here goes:
    Larbert Rd comes off the Kings Hwy, between Bungendore and Braidwood. If you've left Canberra, its on the left a couple of kays after the Shoalhaven River bridge.
    Travel to the end of Larbert Rd, and onto the property. Travel right to the end of the driveway (straight past the weighbridge on the left, straight past the main access road for the sand trucks that is on the right) and veer right into the yard around the farmhouse, and pay your money. Then go back and park somewhere off to the side of the access road.

    maps.google.com.au

    ------------

    At Fairbairn, the MX, DT & Trials practice days often don't coincide. When I've been there for an MX-only practice day, they've been OK with people riding the Endurocross track as well as the MX track.
    I was instructed to go and ask the DT people about riding Kumagutsa, and the DT people have always said yes.

    The one time I've ridden the dirt track, knobbies were OK. Not sure if this is always the case, but it was when I was there.

    Wow thanks a lot!! How far out are they roughly from Canberra, haven't been here long and no idea how far out captains flat is. Whats forest gate like? Are Ballallaba Springs and Forest gate more of a mx track??

    Also, do you know the full address at larbert? I'm super keen to go for a ride this sunday, this is the only place i know apart from Fairbairn and i don't really know how to get there.

    Just keen to find stuff similar to home where it was a decent track, pay 30 or 40 dollars, and you can ride for the day, go on and off the track as often as you like.

    Need to find my way around, Thanks again!


    QUOTE=Spac;1798942]The further out you go, the less swappers and pit bikes you'll see - and the terrain gets better too (less whopped out...).

    Other options are Forestgate & Ballallaba Springs, both out past Captains Flat. Both are dearer and smaller than Larbert.
    More jumps, though.

    Ballallaba is more organised - you've got to book in advance, she only lets limited numbers of riders there, blah blah. It's a bit more hassle, but keeps the d-head factor down.

    Between the three, and practice days at Fairbairn, we're pretty spoiled, really.[/QUOTE]

    Do they have practice days every wkend and can you ride what ever track you want? Say start with some flat track then do some m/x and then have a go at some of the trials stuff all on a m/x bike with knobbies? Or do you have to have different tyres for each track?
