Cyclocross (sometimes known as CX) is a mix between road roading and cross country mountain biking. Races are generally  over short courses with racers avoiding obstacles (which may require dismounting), riding on grass, gravel, step hills and more. It’s a muddy, fun experience for all ages of riders.

A new event type at a favourite location – Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park

We will be looking to take advantage of the fire roads and extensive grassy sections to build a course with a range of terrain and challenges.

Race Overview

Cyclocross (CX) Racing involve multiple laps of a short, non technical, mixed terrain circuit. Racing will be the “mini – enduro” format with who ever completes the most laps in 45 minutes being declared the winner. Where CX differs from traditional Cross Country Racing is the addition of barriers, run ups and other sections of track where participants need to dismount and run with their bikes. There will be barriers at St Virgils and a run up as well.

Bikes

All types of bike (and rider) are welcome to get involved, and get rad! (as long as they have 2 working brakes, and bar plugs in the handlebars)
