2012 Giant Bikes XCO Series Winners Announced

The committee would like to congratulate the winners of the Adelaide Mountain Bike Club’s 2012 Giant Bikes XCO series.

In 2012, XCO riders were categorised on their ability rather than their age or gender. This had the result of making racing more challenging and more rewarding, increasing category sizes and providing close matched competition for riders regardless of age or gender.

This year, members competed for points towards a prize pool.  Points were awarded for loyalty, consistency, performance and volunteering.

If you want to know what it takes to be a winner in this years competition then its worth noting that all winners were club members, 9 out of 10 volunteered their time and 9 out of 10 competed in all five rounds of the competition

So, the winners of the 2012 Giant Bikes XCO Series are.

1st Prize Giant Adelaide Bikes Tim Klein wins a Giant Anthem X1 26er (Medium), Team jersey, Team bibs, and T-shirt. Total approximate value $3,500 from our series sponsor.
