No Frills Mountain Bike Racing is for 13yo and older Male and Female Riders. The focus is on fun and gaining skills through a typical club racing format.

Please note: If you do decide to race with an e-bike please let us know either via comments upon entry or on race day, as although e-bikes are welcome to race in our events, we do not have enough entrants to create a separate category at this stage. E-bike competitors are not eligible to place or collect prizes (chocolates).

Adaptive Riders are welcome to race in all our events. Although we do not have enough entrants to create a separate category at this stage, adaptive riders are eligible to compete in whatever grade they feel suit their ability level. We are always considerate of the needs of the adaptive rider and will do our best to run courses that also cater for their needs as well as the rest of our members. As an adaptive rider if you can let us know in advance then we can also alter our courses even more to cater for your needs

The course lap will be 8km in length and you will be able continue on the course as many times you wish. When the checkered flag comes out at your cut off time of either 2hrs for U17 and 3hrs for all other riders you will not be able continue on another lap.

Presentations will commence ~30 mins after your race cut off time and we encourage everyone to hang around after the race as we will have post race drinks while chat about the past three hours of incredible racing.
