The RATS Cycling Club is proud to be the home of bike trials in South East Queensland.
In 2015 club member Janine Jungfels became the first ever Australian to win the UCI Trials World Championship as well as being named Australian female Mountain Biker of the Year and Logan Sportswoman of the year. In 2016 Janine will be working closely with the club to promote and grow the sport of trials at our one of a kind trials training park at Underwood Park.
2016 RATS Trials Series: The Winter Wheelies
Good new for Queensland trials riders with the dates for the 2016 RATS Cycling Club Trials Series being announced. Known as "The Winter Wheelies" this club series will take place over 4 rounds held at 2 great venues only 20 minutes from the Brisbane CBD.
Rounds 1 and 4 will be held at the Underwood Park trials facility, a brand new trials destination established by the RATS Cycling Club at the start of this year. Rounds 2 and 3 will take place at Le's TNN training facility at Ellen Grove. Both venues cater to riders of all levels and new riders are invited to compete in the Novice Junior and Novice Senior categories.
Entries are now being excepted online and the cost is only $10 per round for MTBA members. If you aren't an MTBA member you should consider joining the RATS Cycling Club. Not only will you save on day licence fees at trials and MTB events Australia wide but you will also be part of the club responsible for getting Underwood Park up and running. Without the RATS club this park would not be open and your support of the club will help grow this facility in the future.
