Thanks :-)

Did I make a mistake or has the date changed?

I had 28th April in my calendar as the date, which I'm sure I read somewhere.

Argh! The website was down and it wasn't listed in the Events Section: http://www.vorb.org.nz/index-events.html

So I thought it wasn't happening and haven't included it as an upcoming event for the next issue of Spoke Magazine. We've still got a chance to get it in (going to the printers at the end of this week.) Where's some information about it? Can someone list it here: http://www.vorb.org.nz/index-events.html

The Ohope Ordeal offers long (40km) and short course (20km) options, both very hilly. The long course includes a mid-race main climb that soars to over 450 metres. On a clear day there are spectacular views over Ohiwa Harbour and out to White Island (Whaakari) and Whale Island (Moutohora).The mix of riding terrain is diverse, with lengthy stretches of single-track and meandering farmland cattle trails, as well as swooping pine needle and shingle covered forestry roads. The ride finishes off with a 50-metre dash across Ohope Beach School playing field.

As well as being – almost - 100 percent ridable, the event is 100 percent mellow. “It’s a really good race. It’s a really interesting course,â€

The course is looking great with some new single track and fast downhills to really get the juices flowing. The whakatane MTB club is pulling out all stops to have the course in primo condition for the event.
