Great spectator viewing and intense racing action right to the finish line.

This event has been planned to be a fun and exciting days racing. The 4 race format is a little different to anything else and the shorter race duration will cater for all skill levels but still challenge the Pro riders in a sprint format with higher intensities.

The format is popular with the entrants with plenty of smiles and bench racing between events.

The prize money system is designed to spread the wealth ($500) around a little. $100 will be paid to the winner of each race (Two 1 hour XCs, and two Super Finals). With a $100 bonus to a rider who wins all races, which hopefully will provide some close racing right to the final flag.

Race format:

Some conditions/rules apply.

Top 10 from the XC races will qualify for super finals.

There will be a Junior race.

Start of each race will be dead engine.
