CANCELLATION – Summer XCO Eagle MTB Park

Unfortunately AMBC has decided to cancel the Summer XCO race tomorrow (3/2/18) due to a Total Fire Ban and Severe fire danger rating in the district of Eagle Mountain Bike Park. The decision is made in accordance to the park’s rules and MTBA’s guidelines. There will be a total refund for entries made online through MTBA as soon as possible.

We are very apologetic however feeling more excited for our next race at Cobbler’s on the 3rd March.
