All climbing or all downhill ? Why not both ? XC mountain biking will have you covered with a course over varying terrain including climbs, descents and the occasional flat bit.
This series is XCO style which means competitors complete a certain number of laps around a defined loop course. Open / Elite riders will complete the most laps with less laps required for other grades. For more technical courses, the juniors and Sport riders will a shortened / easier lap. Prior to the main race there is a junior ride for children who are not wanting to race but enjoy riding off road in a group. This is non-competitive with an emphasis on fun and group participation . It runs for approximately 15-20 mins . Oh and we nearly forgot to mention... We are now running an E-Bike category for those who like a little assistance!
For more information , see our website https://hobartwheelers.com.au/.
The track will link together a number of existing trails with the addition of some wider trails to allow for passing. The circuit is expected to be around 4-5km long, with a map of the circuit to be provided with the pre-race briefing (to be emailed after registration closes).
Please be sure your bike is in great nick, with working brakes, no play in the bearings and plugged bar ends. Mountain bike riding can be dangerous and we need you to wear a helmet and gloves.
