What is XCO?

Cross Country Olympic (XCO) racing is a lap based mountain bike race that features longer climbs (2-6minutes), traversing and downhill trails.

Typically, courses are approximately 5km in length, using a range of green through to black diamond trails.

The winner is the competitor who completes the allocated number of laps and crosses the finish line first!
