The State XCO Mountain Bike Championships are being held in the North of the state this year, and we’d love to see a lot of southern riders make the journey north.
The race is XCO style, meaning that riders will complete a certain number of laps as fast as possible.
Compete in at least 2 races in the series to be eligible for series prizes.
Series points will be allocated as follows (1-90, 2-70, 3-60, 4-50, 5-40, 6-35, 7-30, 8-25, 9-21, 10-17, 11-14, 12-11, 11-9, 12-6. If you fail to finish, you will score 5 points).
XCO Style race – complete a given number of laps.
Position to count towards season points.
Series categories consist of:
Masters 1/2 Men/Women
Masters 3/4 Men/Women
Masters 5/6 Men/Women
U13, U15, U17, U19 Men/Women
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.
Age is calculated based on your age at the end of 2018 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.
