Come and try a new location. Come and try mountain biking. Come and try racing in a fun social atmosphere. Yep just come and try!! AMBC is excited to partner with MTBA and add an extra event to the calendar for 2017. Mountain Bike Australia will provide insurance cover to all participants FREE OF CHARGE regardless of whether they are MTBA members or not. Adelaide Mountain Bike Club will provide a great day out!

Monarto Forest, aka Monarta Woodlands, or my personal reference Calli Tower Single Track is fast flowy and flat with bermed corners, dirt moguls and a sandy fire road. It is only 35 minutes from the CBD up the freeway just before Monarto Zoo and opposite the callington phone tower. It is an ideal location for beginners to ride or an ideal location for a warm up to an epic ride that takes in the jailbreak and rocky gully single track that Monarto/Murray Bridge is known for. There is nothing on the trail that would catch you out. All abilities welcome.

Sign on will open at around 8:15am with the first race under way by 9am.

Race 1: Fast and furious hot lap race. Ride as fast as you can and really blow that heart rate out of this world. We’ll have categories for men, women, juniors and cx bikes. Cash prizes up for grabs. Prizes will be awarded for 1st place and a random mid-field place. Anyone can be a winner!
Race 2: Poker race. Max 1hr 15mins of riding and the best poker hand will win, not the first person across the line. Complete either 5 laps, 4 laps, 3 laps ….choose the one you feel comfortable with and the one that you will complete in 1hr 15mins.
Crazy sock competition – wear your craziest socks, and if you don’t have any get your plain ones and sew, hang or do something crazy and funky to them. Best socks will be determined by crowd chearing.

rego closes 7th Oct, saturday 2pm.

Day licence is free. If you’re not a club member MTBA will cover your day insurance for you. Race entry for the day $5 to cover costs of such things as toilet hire, St john, and anything else to make the race comfortable and safe. Race 1 is an additional $5 which will go back towards the prize pool for this race. Cash prizes up for grabs to 1st place and random place (we’ll decide once we know how many have entered by saturday).
