If your little shredder is under the age of 13 then we need to have a chat and make sure they are up for the challenge. Please contact the event organiser.
Age categories are based on your age at the final round of the series (30/12/2021) per MTBA regulations. This is to prevent age category changes during the series.
SERIES POINTS will operate under the 2018 MTBA National Series scoring system as follows:
Points will be awarded to the all finishers at each of the series races and the final standings will be based on the total points earned in the series. In the event of a tie the winner will be determined by the competitor who has the highest places. If a tie remains the series winner will be determined by the competitor with the best placing in the most recent race.

MTBA Event Entries – AusCyling transitional issues
Club events still use the MTBA event booking system (MOS) whilst transitioning under the new AusCyling structure.
AusCycling have advised that at present there is an issue with the current MTBA event system being unable to verify the new AusCycling TidyHQ memberships. When you renew or take out a new membership with AusCyling then enter for an MTBA event the system will advise you that a day licence will be charged.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE REGISTERING FOR AN EVENT
Members who are experiencing this issue, which also applies to current BMX & CA members, need to email their membership details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Auscyling will then set up accounts in MOS which you can use to register for events.
- Currently all event entries are online only.
- Due to this issue it is recommended that you renew or take out your membership in advance of entering an event to avoid missing the event entry closure period.
Online Entry Only
