A note on sport: This group is for riders who are pretty new to the sport and want to give racing a go, but don’t feel fit enough to be on the trail for over an hour.
A note on expert: This is a group for riders who feel they are faster than sport, but not fit enough to compete with their age group. It will generally be around the same duration as Masters 1/2.

IMPORTANT: Age is calculated based on your age at the end of 2019 as per MTBA guidelines.

Prior to the main race there is a junior ride for children who are 10 years old or younger. This is non-competitive with an emphasis on fun and group participation. It runs for approximately 15-20 minutes.

Getting There

Results

Wow, once again a great turn out and pretty awesome weather. A heap of junior riders too, which is excellent for the future of XC racing in Hobart. I hope everyone enjoyed the course – some new bits and some bits run in a different way. I think it made it sufficiently challenging without too hard. Next one at Glenorchy will probably be a bit harder!

Thanks again to everyone who signed up online (saving you money and us time), to the awesome vollies who helped track setup, pull down, flipping sausages, taking photos, and so on.

Next race in a month at Belbins Road. Should be a blast!
