The Kandos Mountain Bike Club is excited to be hosting Round 3 of the Central West Interclub Race Series this weekend, Sunday, August 13.

It will be held in the beautiful Clandulla State Forrest.

The track into the trailhead starts on Bylong Valley Way between Ilford/Castlereagh Hwy and Kandos.

The entry is 10.5 Km in from the Highway and the trailhead is 850m along the fire road.

Plenty of signage will be in place.

Riders from Dubbo, Orange, Bathurst, Lithgow, Mudgee, Western Sydney MTB Club and the Blue Mountains will travel to Kandos to battle it out for series points.

Many noteworthy riders from last years’ event are eager to carve up the track again.

Riders including Brett Robinson from Dubbo who always strives for 110 per cent. Steve Tomczyk from Western Sydney who is blindingly fast on his single-speed and Dan Watson from Bathurst.

Last year, Dan won fastest lap and is showing incredible consistency in this years’ series, blink and you’ll miss him!

The Kandos Mountain Bike Club have made considerable efforts to make the race spectator friendly, and are encouraging the region to cheer or (or heckle) the riders.

It’s advised that spectators arrive early and speak to the greeting organisers who will direct you to the best vantage points.
