All climbing or all Downhill? Why not both? XC mountain biking will have you covered. This series is XCO style which means laps around a defined loop course. It means plenty of folks to chat with while you race and guaranteed good times for all racers.
This is our final race of the series, and will take place at the same time as the final DH race for the series too. We have done this a few times, and it makes for a great event. XC Race will take place during DH practice and finish in time for XC riders to watch the DH final run.
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).
