2016 Winter XC Series

10th April people.  Lock it in! Link to AMBC website in our bio for all your information and entering needs ?Sam Bruce #howihammer #adelaidemtbclub #foxcreekmtb @hammernutritionausThe first round of the Winter XC series is fast approaching with Round 1 of the Hammer Nutrition Enduro coming up on Sunday 10th April. Entries close on Saturday at 10am.

We are always looking for people to help out around race HQ, so if you can help with any of the following, send an email to

  • BBQ cooking – yes, the winter series sees the return of the BBQ!
  • Course pack up – relive the adventure one last time!
  • Registration – control the masses and dish out order!

The basics of the racing format will be the same as previous years with a few key changes all competitors should be aware of.

Elite series? GONE!

The committee has decided that the “Elite Winter Series” is to be discontinued. So you won’t see any “elite” categories this year – Enduros will be “Solo Male” and XCO will be “A Grade”.


We will be following our existing guidelines regarding minimum age for juniors – 11 years old. If you (or your child) doesn’t quite meet the requirements, but still want to join in the fun, send an email to and options can be discussed. We aim to be inclusive of everyone, but also want to ensure the enjoyment and safety of all competitors.

Series entry…….is it cheaper??…No.

A solid reminder that “series entry” is available, but there is NO discount for it. The registration system used by the club needs all events to be part of a series in order for entries to process properly. Everyone is welcome to enter the entire series if they tend to be forgetful – if you can’t make a race for some reason, let us know through with some notice and a refund can be organised.

Race directoring

Our current Race Director David Knight who has supported the club in this role over the last 2.5 years (previously the juniors coordinator) will be looking to pass on this prestigious position to someone next year. So get ready to hear us harp on about this at every race/presentations/email/etc. over the year as, similar to the timing and registration coordinator positions, they are an essential part of hosting races. For information on the position, email

2016 registration – all open!

ALL EVENTS for the rest of 2016 are open for registration. Links are located on the calendar page, the respective events page and we’ll throw them in here for you with dates as well (gee, we’re nice people! Maybe, save this email/page if you want for easy reference…….winks as good as a nudge to a blind bat!):
