The Denniston Plateau is over 2,400 hectares in size, Buller Coal are planning to mine an area of around 100 hectares, none of which will all be happening in the first few months of operation (if it goes ahead by then).

There are mountain bike trails riddled over the Plateau and we'll be ensuring we are well clear of any mining hazards if there will be any by that time.

So it's unique, but not that unique. We can spare some of it to line the pockets of the shareholders of an ozzy mining company.

We are here simply running an event we have for a number of years and we're excited to do it again. This event is not for you to facilitate your political woes.

Wouldn't want to upset the sponsors. I might even come!

Entries on the day?

Myself and my riding buddies plan our lives about 3 minutes in advance, so if I could swing it for a mission up friday night would we be able to enter saturday morning?
