MTBA Event EntriesAusCyling 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.


Members who are experiencing this issue, which also applies to current BMX & CA members, need to email their membership details to 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.
