Howdy! Round 2 here we go Sunday September 15th 2013 a new track will be used for this round we'll be on an old revamped "ROAD GAP" Track which has lot of natural terrain..... Big thanks to our sponsors from the last round RockShox, SRAM, Avid, Truvativ, Maxxis, Yarra Valley Cycles,and Kennards Hire Lilydale for all the awesome prizes....Here we have a few happy snaps of the new track.... and Pommy John says it's RAD
To celebrate the impending end to winter FTFDH are having a couple of races in spring. These will be held at Long Gully (thanks Scotty!!). We'd also like to thank the event sponsors: RockShox, Avid, Truvativ, SRAM, Maxxis, Yarra Valley Cycles and Kennards Hire in Lilydale.
For those of you who don't know where to find it Long Gully is at 330 Long Gully Road, Healesville, 3777. Signs will be out on the day but follow signs for Long Gully Winery. When you've gone past the winery the venue is about 2.3kms further along the road on the right. See you there!
Thanks to Kennards Hire in Lilydale, we've been able to get on with some serious building over at Long Gully. Benny's been spending a good amount of time up there. Here's some pictures of what's going on.

Thanks Scott for continuing to let FTFDH use Long Gully as our "home ground". Thanks to Kennards Hire in Lilydale for helping us out with equipment... and Thanks Benny for putting in the time and effort!
Just a quick thank you to Kennards hire in Lilydale. They've helped us at FTFDH with a really good deal on equipment rental so we can keep the trails and shuttle roads we use in top condition, as well as build new ones! Thanks Guys!
