“Race the clock, ride with mates. Good times!”

Chocolate Foot is proud to announce an exciting new MTB series kicking off in 2015 – the Good Times enduro series. Focused on fun, high quality trail riding, this will appeal to our regular competitors and those into Enduro-style racing.

We hope to make this more than just a race against the clock, it’s about creating the same vibe as if you were out trail riding with your mates – but with racing, bragging rights, and prizes thrown into the mix. It’s not all about chasing split seconds, we’re going to make sure you have a good time whether you’re at the pointy end or if it’s your first enduro event!

We’ve modelled this series on the format of the Enduro World Series. We plan to have a point to point course made up of around 5 timed sections and numerous liaison or cruising stages which competitors can ride at a relaxed pace with their mates and dozens of new mates. The liaisons won’t just be firetrail bashing either, we plan to make these as fun as the timed sections but without the pressure of racing. It’s all about good times!

Proposed dates and locations for the inaugural Good Times enduro series are:7 June: Mogo State Forest, Mogo. The Maulbrooks MTB Park hosted a round of the Singletrack Mind Series last year and everyone raved about descents of AST and The Snake Track! But there’s plenty more gold in them thar hills and we’ll have 5 timed sections to test your skills. And it’s not all fast, buff stuff like the Snake track there’s plenty of rock for the more technically minded. We’ll link this all up with fun liaison sections that will have you yelling for more! Good times!

4 October: Kiwarrak State Forest, Taree. The Singletrack Mind series has visited the ‘Tip Trails’on two occasions and each time we’ve been blown away with the quality of the trails, especially after they have been groomed to perfection with a leaf blower! What you might not know is that further up the ridge is plenty of amazing trails and through the liaison and 5 race stages you’ll get to know plenty more of Taree’s fine singletrack, and trails like ‘Frontal Lobotomy’ and ‘Son of Skull’!

15 November: Orange. The capital of the central west has an abundance of great riding! The Singletrack Mind Series has been to Kinross State Forest 3 times and the stoke factor has been huge! While Kinross itself offers some great descents like the North Shore, there’s also trails on the slopes of the 1,395m peak of Mt Conobolas, while we’ve yet to ride them, the local trail fairies tell us these secret trails are epic!

The Good Times event website and more information will be available in the New Year at www.chocolatefoot.com.au, and details of the 6th season of Chocolate Foot’s 2015 Singletrack Mind endurance series will be released shortly.
