15/30/45km event, Wingello, Sunday 28th April, 2pm
Return to Wingello! Since the forest fires of 2020, Wingello has been closed as most of the old 26km loop was lost. A team of volunteers from Highlands Trails have rejuvenated part of the old loop and plans are underway for extending the network. Come and ride the first reclaimed section, which includes classic favourites such as Cover Shot, Princesses Revenge and Tangles, with some cool new features.
This event will be based on a 15km loop. Adults can choose to ride in C, B or A grade, which corresponds to 1, 2 or 3 laps of the 15km course, so that you ride 15, 30 or 45km in total. U9, U11 and U13 riders will ride 1 lap of the course (which may be shortened depending on the experience level of the entrants). E-Bike, U15 rand U17 riders should specify in the comments of their entry the number of laps they would like to ride.
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.
Number plate pickup any time after 1:00pm, racing at 2pm for all categories.
Riders may do a practice lap around the 6km XCO course between 1:00pm-2:00pm, before racing begins if they wish, but the main 15km course will probably be too long to need a practice lap as the remaining 9km will be made up of fire trail. Also, the XCO course does not contain anything so radical that you need to have practised it beforehand.
There are categories for all ages, from beginners and young kids to experienced racers. $10 adults, $5 children.
U9s and U11s may ride a modified course, depending on the experience level of the entrants, but will race at the same time as the adult categories.
New members welcome!
