  • Light requirements:
    • Lights will be required for any competitor starting a lap after 17:30.
    • Defining a light? You must have:
      • One red rear and one white front light.
      • The rear light should be on solid and does not need to blind people 50km away enjoying the sofa at home.
      • The front light should be bright enough for you to feel comfortable riding through a pine forest at night. If it can blind the person 50km away enjoying the sofa I suppose we’ll get one more angry spectator!
    • Don’t have lights? Ask around – you never know who might have some spare sets laying around.

Juniors – if you’re looking to join a team then get in contact with the Junior Coordinators – juniors@ambc.asn.au – and get chatting. A breakdown of the Junior categories:

  • Solo Juniors, full course – must be 16 years of age in 2017 – born in 2001 and before;
  • U15 teams teams of 4, full course – born in 2003 & 2004;
  • U13 teams teams of 4 – born in 2005 & 2006 – racing on a short course (aprox. 4-5kms) for 4 hours.

There is also an option to register individual juniors and be teamed up on the day. If you are choosing this option please notify juniors@ambc.asn.au so that we can be prepared on the day. Select the option “Junior individual team entry” when registering.
