2023 XCO State Championship + AGM

Sun 10 Nov 2024

The State Championships is a stand alone event that determines who is entitled to call themselves the champion of South Australian XCO mountain biking. The title is recognized at AusCycling national level events and is an important stepping stone for riders, both established and aspiring.

Day license and Trial memberships are not sufficient memberships for State Championship events. Your entry will be reviewed and if you’re membership is not sufficient, an email will be sent to alert you. If no response is received, your entry may automatically be refunded.

2023 Annual General Meeting:

As per tradition for AMBC, we will be hosting the club Annual General Meeting within quick succession of the racing on the 25th September 2022.

This involves presenting volunteer of the year awards, a quick member update and financial review and voting of the 2023 committee, the last part being the most important.

All positions on the committee, that is President, Race Director, Treasurer, Secretary, Volunteer Coordinator, Junior Development, Sponsorship and Social Media; become vacant at this time, and we hope to receive nominations for each position over the course of the month – feel free to get in contact with us with any questions! Any adults are eligible to make a nomination. The commitments are generous, and usually involve a meeting on Monday nights approximately 2 weeks before a event, in addition to general communication via email + group chat.

XCO courses 4-5km long, aiming to be a total race time of 1h 15 for the winner of each category. This means that Elite riders are expected to do approximately 12.5minute laps. The trails used are generally Intermediate-Advanced, although B-lines are provided where possible. We have supplied some proposed loops however we cannot guarantee that these will be the exact loop used on race day due to the demands of the land owners, park managers and other factors.


The race van, rego and sign on will be located in the Eagle Mezzanine Area. Parking will be in the bowl area. Enter via the main gate off of Mt Barker Road.


We need you. These races happen with the good work done by our volunteers. If you are available to help set up or pack up or assist with anything else please get in touch with our volunteers coordinator via email: racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au
