AMBC Races

Mt Torrens 4hr – This Sunday!

Wow, it’s our final 4hr for 2017 already. If you haven’t done one yet then we’d love to see you out either as a solo or get a mate together and enter as a duo.

Remember this one is a private property race and well worth entering the race just to get an opportunity to ride these trails. Big thanks to Carol Moore and Darren Dazzle Moore for sharing your property with us!!

Enter as a team or solo, it works out to $30 per person for club members. Juniors are cheaper. Entries close Saturday 22nd July at 10am.

If you’re not sure how to get there then check out our website for a google maps link and directions. Race head quarters will be on the Mt Torrens footy oval.

Its cheaper to race as a club member. To join or renew visit the MTBA website and select Adelaide Mountain Bike Club as your club. FREE once-off 8 week trial MTBA memberships are also available on the above link.

On the day sign on will open from 8:15am with racing starting at 9am and finishing 4hrs later with presentations following shortly after.

If you’re wondering what to expect, essentially it is 3 climbs and 200m of climbing per lap. The lap will be just under 7km long. We start at the footy oval, head up the fireroad to the first switch back climb. This will take us to the top ridge and straight down a rocky decent out the back. There we play for a bit, including a ramp over, some tight corners and the second climb which leads us in to the mincer (not as rocky as it used to be but you’ll understand how it got its name). This leads us back to the top ridge. A few rocks here and there but your momentum will carry you over these just fine. Down a decent up another climb and down a fast flowy DH on to the ramp, into a dual slalom, out in to the paddock and back to the footy oval.

Course will be set up the day before. If you or your cheer squad can help please get in touch with P’an-Tau on

Yes! Coffee Cubicle will be joining us!!
