"Quain and myself are organising the 3rd round of the NSW Trials series at Arcadia. The beginner sections will be set for XC bikes, so i thought you guys might like to come (or anyone else interested) you wont be hopping any of that shit, just technical rolling stuff. Should be pretty good fun. Just put ya seat down and some flat pedals would help, but not essential.
Anyway check the flyer for more details."
