What a weekend for the Mascor Greytown MTB festival!  A cold and wet start on Saturday afternoon meant lots of muddy participants.

Sunday followed with a magnificent day and a good turnout for the day’s events. Record entries in the kiddies rides and some challenging riding on the longer courses with lots of positive comments from the competitors.

Overall a great weekend with lots of benefits for our worthy beneficiaries.

Very well balanced course, but a group of us took a wrong turning after exiting the forest single track about 5km from the finish. We lost around 15 minutes having to back track and find the route markers. Very muddy and quite heavy going, but it must be a stunning ride when it is not quite so wet and treacherous. Well organised and marshals were most enthusiastic and helpful. Thanks and we will be back!!

Race was cold and muddy, very muddy. But that can't be blamed on the organizers. Overall the race was quite a decent route, markings were ok but could have been better. I found sections of the course extremely bumpy, and literally just wishing I had a dual sus, and praying for the finish line to come!

I wouldn't do this event again on a hardtail.
