State Champs results are up

Preliminary results are up on the results page. They will be finalised at 6:00pm Wednesday. If you have any questions, please send an email to timing@ambc.asn.au

Thanks to David Knight and Evan James for laying out a good tough course. Apparently just over 1,000m of climbing for the 6 laps – I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge!

Thanks to all who volunteered to help out to make this race happen.

Next “race” is on the 6th Dec and will be a pony express – one junior and/or female required per team. No official timing and we will be drawing the raffle for the Giant Bike – two race entries throughout the year will get you in the draw, BUT, you have to be there to win it! More details to follow soon.

State champs course map

The State Champs track has been finalised.

The design criteria for State Champs differs a bit to the Winter Series XCO courses to accommodate age group versus ability based classes and to act as a stepping stone to the more difficult courses found at National Series and National Championship events.

The course features a mix of tight pine forest single track, steep climbs and fast open sections all interconnected with plenty of passing opportunities. The lap is 5km in length and has 180m of climbing.

There is a separate map for the first and second half of the lap and most of the major intersections have already been marked out to allow riders to practice in preparation for next weekends race.

Don’t forget entries close 10am Saturday November 15th and there are strictly NO on the day entries.See you on race day!
