    COURSE

    Specific course information will be released closer to the date

    Course will be set up the day before unless noted otherwise. Please contact racedirector@ambc.asn.au in advance if you would like to help setup the course.

    XCO courses 4-5km long, aiming to be a total race time of 1h 15 for the winner of each category. This means that Elite riders are expected to do approximately 12.5minute laps. The trails used are generally Intermediate-Advanced and B-lines are provided where possible. AMBC may publish a proposed course, however we cannot guarantee that this will be the exact course used on race day due to the demands of the land owners, park managers, weather conditions and other factors.


    PARKING

    Specific parking arrangements for each race will be released closer to the date

    Car pool if you can. Save the environment and minimise your impact.
