With less than a week to go before entries close for the end of year pony express party – here’s some info for the masses!
To finish the year off AMBC is hosting a Pony Express race at Victoria Park (Park 16) in the Adelaide Parklands – Forrest of Doom.
The race will be held on Sunday 7th Dec, sign-on from 9am and race start at 10am. Racing will last for aprox. 1.5 hours, with some prizes and a BBQ happening afterwards.
Pony Express is a team relay format of racing that requires each team to contain at least 1 junior or female rider. Each team member completes the required number of laps (usually 3-4 of a short course) and the first team to complete the laps is the winner. The race plate is the relay baton and must be transferred from rider to rider for each lap – AMBC encourages the use of your imagination when thinking of efficient ways to do this!
Transponders are not required for this race and race plates will be issued on the day.
Entry for adults is $15 and juniors $10. If you’re not an MTBA member, you will need a $20 day license as well. Registration is available here.
If you can’t form a team, but still wish to race, enter as an individual and we can allocate a team on the day.
Following the race, we will be raffling of a Giant Bike to anyone who has competed in three or more races throughout the year (includes GESA). Winners will need to be there to win the prize.
