Clarence MTB Park TAS
25km, 50km or 75km
The Meehan Monster has quite the reputation for being a cute little friend in the Meehan Range… The only problem is, once a year in late spring it comes out with a hunger for unsuspecting victims legs. For the last few years, the monster has been in hibernation but now it has a dirt devilish little buddy, who has bought him back. His hunger is greater than ever and word has it that he has even started to chew on the batteries of unsuspecting E-bikers.
The RIDE Bellerive Meehan Monster is a XCM race held in the Meehan Range, Clarence Tasmania. The event will be hosted by The Hobart Wheelers Dirt Devils CC. There are several race options to suit all:
Solo: 1, 2 or 3 laps Team: 3 laps (1 lap each)
Each lap is approx. 25km with 750m climbing!!! The course consists of around 90% single track, much of which is has been hand built over many years. The course will be similar to the original with a few modern twists added to keep the Monster happy. With the Monster’s new hunger for batteries, we are now open for E-Bike entries!
If you don’t think you're up for more than one lap, then team up for a team multi lap relay!
Food and coffee vendors will be onsite for refreshments all event.
Clarence Mtb Park, Meehan Range
Our Race Village will be set up in the heart of the Clarence MTB Park. From there riders will set out on the best mix of single track and fire road the Meehan Range has to offer.
Marshal Points and feed stations will be available on course.
Please be sure your bike is in great nick, with working front and rear brakes, no play in the bearings and plugged bar ends. Mountain bike riding can be dangerous and we need everyone to wear a helmet and gloves as per Auscycling technical regulations.
Riders must be self-sufficient with food and water. There will be feed two feed zones on each lap but please do not rely on these to be your only source of nutrition.
E-Bikes are more than welcome (beware the monster loves to eat batteries). You will be restricted to 1 battery for 1-2 laps and 2 batteries for 3 laps. Batteries may only be changed in the Tech zone at the start/ finish.
Riders must be self-sufficient in the way of spares. Mechanical assistance from a non-competitor will only be allowed in the feed/ tech zones. Competitors may help each other whilst on course outside of the feed/ tech zone.
The hardest choice you will need to make is how long you will risk being on course with the monster lurking.
