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.

From main road, enter the main gate, take the driveway up the hill to the left, taking the first right and then right again to get to the car park area.
And again, Hobart turns on some stunning weather for our race. Sunny day, cool breeze.
Congratulations to everyone who came out and gave it a go. It’s a tough course at St Virgils, tight and twisty with not a lot of time to cruise along. It was great to see so many new and young riders out there. I hope you all had fun and come along again to the next one (March 4th at Clarence MTB Park)
Series points so far are here:
I have had to jiggle these around a bit due to some of the younger riders being in the wrong age group for the first few races. I think it’s been done fairly. Any complaints, please get in touch. 🙂 Chris
