RACE COURSE INFO
The race course, race HQ and parking locations will be located near the main gate at Cobbler’s Creek. Parking will be in the main trail head car park.
 
The loop is 3.65km long with 95vm and utilises beginner to intermediate trails. Each club race course is designed based on the target race time, which for all summer series races is approximately 1 hour. The lap time is approximately 11 mins for A grade men, doing 6 laps. To get a better approximation, it is best to pre-ride the course.
 
Start order is A-grade men, followed by each grade as a wave with a gap (tba) to the next grade. Call up and briefing will be 10 mins before start.
 
A proposed course map and .gpx file is available in the discussion section of this event page. It is a guide of the layout of the course.
