About Highlands Trails

Highlands Trails recently took over the responsibility of running all mountain bike events in the Southern Highlands. Previously Southern Highlands Cycling Club organised events in road, track and MTB, but they now specialise in only road and track. Highlands Trails has cared for the trails of Wingello for many years and has now taken on the custodianship of looking after all mountain bike trails in the Southern Highlands. We are a family oriented club, looking to promote riding in the beautiful Southern Highlands area of NSW. Please visit our website www.highlandstrails.com.au for additional information.

Event Summary

This race is a round of the Interclub Series being held by Sutherland Shire Cycling Club, South Coast United Mountainbikers and Helensburgh Off Road Cycling Club. Riders entering from visiting clubs can enter any category but if we do not offer the category that you are competing in for the Interclub (Master etc), please mention this in the comments as we can make the categories required.

Please note all entry is online - CUTOFF is at 10:00am on Sunday, so that we have time to print start lists etc before heading to the track.

This is a traditional cross country race on a loop of around 5km. Perfect for beginners or those wanting to try racing for the first time but also fun and fast for experienced riders. Lap numbers determined on the day, dependent on category. Number plate pickup any time after 1:00pm, racing at 2pm for all categories.

Last time kids raced first, then adults, so this time it's the other way around, with a presentation for the series after both races are finished.

We recommend riders do a practice lap around the course between 1:00pm-2:00pm, before racing begins. The course is on private property so there will not be access until then.

There are categories for all ages, from beginners and young kids to experienced racers. $10 adults, $5 children.

New members welcome!

To enter you will need a valid AusCycling Race Licence. Please go to Membership on the AusCycling website if you are not currently a member.

Note: U17s are turning 13-16 in 2022. U13s are turning 11-12 in 2022. U11s are turning 9-10 in 2022 and may ride a modified course. Riders who are U11 and want to complete the adult course can enter U13s. U9s are turning anything up to 8 in 2022 and will ride a modified course.
