The You Yangs Mountain Bike Club was developed as a not-for profit organisation to assist with the improvement and maintenance of the Mountain Bike Park, raising funds via Racing, Events and Shuttle Days.
The You Yangs MTB trails are not government funded. We have been building and maintaining trails since 2010. All work is done by volunteers, donations & dedication. Our ride days & events are purely fundraisers.
The lads had been working hard in the lead up to Rd 1 of the VDHS with their coach/trainer Jake Royle of RaceFit Athlete Development, taking on various physical and mental aspects of the sport, his words to the boys after the race;
“Amazing to see you all killing it and representing the colours in amazing fashion.. The attitudes and skills on display were really commendable and a positive for all of the other competitors.. Working as a team at times and having each other's backs is a big plus in a sport that is sometimes very solo daunting at a place like Barjarg. On a human performance note. We turn from rnd1 which was mind bender and quite easy physically compared to the other races, like Rnd2 and the long, fast, runs of Narbethong..”
Keep up the training and good work ahead of the weekend fellas.

Will Arblaster Racing at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Mont-Sainte-Anne was certainly a highlight for the club this year and an inspiration to many including our 4 new junior development riders. Hopefully the first of many to compete at this level as we look forward to seeing Will step up to the Elite class for the upcoming Victorian Downhill Series 🤟🏻😉
