Hi all Mountain Bikers.

This weekend, Grey High & Grey Junior schools are hosting Grey College (Bloem) for our annual derby fixture.

We are very excited to announce a first for Grey - We are hosting a mountain bike event against Grey Bloem Mountain bikers!

The event will take place from the Containers on Friday morning starting at 8h30 and finishing approximately 12h30 with our U11 boys starting their race at 9am.  They will be followed on by the U13s then the high school teams (U16 & U18).  The juniors will be racing a 1.9km loop  (5 times) while the high school teams will be doing an interesting 3.9km loop (5 times).

This is a first for myself and the Grey junior staff with regards to organisation etc. 

For this reason I would like to appeal to all mountain bikers to please support us with this event where possible with regards to the following pointers to ensure a successful event:

1)      We will be marking the course on Thursday afternoon so please do not remove any tape on trees (it is not litter it is our markers). We will remove it all after the race on Friday.

2)      A big appeal to those planning on riding the valley on Friday morning to stay off our marked track for safety (but please feel free to stand on the sides of the track to watch).  It is predominantly the Mayhem Route and Spur Series Route that we will be using. 

3)      Please feel free to come and support our teams - take a walk or ride out onto the course or view from the start.  There will be a coffee vendor at the start.

Another exciting aspect to the day is that our cross country athletes will also be hosting their event on the same route after the last MTB event. 

It is going to be a great morning!  We look forward to the public support

Thank you ALL in anticipation of your support for our fixture -  this is very important to us as it is so important to continue to grow mountain biking amongst our schools.
