There is no transponder hire anyore and you don’t need to own one either.  We still use one but its included in your race entry along with the race plate. All event information around categories, costs, start times, and the like can be found on our xco race page; click here

For anyone who hasn’t been to a club race, we will have a toilet at the race.  We will also fire up the bbq – sausages and soft drink will be available for purchase at the race, so don’t forget to bring that spare change.

VOLUNTEERS – The club races wouldn’t be possible without our fabulous volunteers that help out.  If you are able to help out this sunday or your cheer squad is able to help out then please contact Robyn on .  We always need help with such things as race set up, race pack up, sign on, and bbq duties.  All volunteers receive a free race entry and sausage.

MEMBERSHIP – If your membership has expired or you’re not a member then now is a great time to renew and avoid paying a $25 day license. Racing as a club member works out cheaper if you plan on racing all the club events and your membership will also allow you to race at a discounted cost at other mtba affiliated events (GESA, Inside Line, PACC Cyclocross).   Click here to find out more about membership or to join/renew.  If you’re not 100% convinced that racing is for you then you can still race at member prices by taking out MTBA’s 2-month free trial membership offer click here.

LOCATION – Make sure you rock up to Shepherds Hill Reserve this sunday morning.  Entry is off of Ayliffes Rd, St Mary’s.  The gates will be open on race day so drive in and follow the main fireroad to the parking area.  For details on the park and how to get there click here.

COURSE MAP – From the start/finish the lap heads up behind the houses along slinky toy marking the beginning of the grey box loop.  Down the grey box dh to then turn sharply and up diagonal climb.  The downhill fun begins again heading down DH3 on to viaduct track for a cruise back to the start/finish. The loop is approximately 5km and should take about 16 minutes for A grade men.  Dave our race director with his crew of set up vollies will be setting up the course on saturday so be sure to say hi to them.
