Margaret River News

The mini excavator and the compactors have been shut down, as another annual re-alignment of the Margaret River Pines is completed for this years Cape to Cape Race.What you will find on your next visit are four new alignments that extend and complement the existing trails that have been developed over the past four years.

‘Lilly Trail’ now has a downhill run twice the original length with a lot more technical features in the build.(watch out for the kickers on the leading lips) A new ‘up’ has been created, that switchbacks the hill, to turn directly into the down for ‘G Land’.

‘Double Espresso’ now crosses Baker Rd. and flows directly into a narrow winding ribbon trail called ‘Long Macchiato’. This trail cuts through a mix of native bush and rouge pines, with few technical features, but lots of flowing turns, that doubles the length of ‘Double Espresso’.

‘Big Pine’ now replaces ‘Pine Tree Trail’. This trail will give race riders their first taste of the single track available in the Pines and is guaranteed to put a big smile on their dial. Cut through a unique forest of tree ferns, big Karri and 100 year old planted pines, ‘Big Pine’ runs on red ocrea earth and comprises big rollers, flowing corners and sweet lines to start the adrenaline pumping for what is to follow.

The exit climb, out of ‘Noodle Bowl’, now heads north to parallel Fox Rd. until it crosses Able Rd. where the trail of ‘Aunt Lou’ begins. Now don’t let the name fool you as ‘Aunt Lou’ has more technical features than a carnival ride. Big solid berms, hip jumps, tables and rollers pitch you in all directions so that when you take the final left hander at the bottom you don’t miss the show bag and fairy floss you could almost taste when you were riding it.

So what are you waiting for? Turn into Carters Rd. off Bussel Hwy. and park in the carpark of Warncliffe Mill, on your right before the bridge. Ride out onto Carters Rd. over the bridge and take the first dirt road on your right. Welcome to the Pines.

Beginner Skills Loop at the Camel Farm

Construction has started on the new beginners' skills loop, located just to the south of the Camel Farm car park being built by Rock'n'Roll mountain biking, inconjunction with WAMBA and the Live Lighter campaign.

This exciting new facility will consist of an area of practise "skinnies" and an 800m beginners loop with 7 trail features to practise on. Each of these features will be accompanied by an interpretive sign explaining how to best tackle it. The features in order as they will appear on the loop are neutral body position, braking, corning, lofting, step up and step downs and berms.

The guys from Rock'n'Roll are out there every spare minute they have to get this project finished before the grand opening at the end of the year.
