04: L&D: MAXXIS Cross Country Info :: Sun 27/9/2020

27/9/20: the race is run and the results are here.

XC Start, Sign-on and day entries will be signposted from Little Valley Rd/Tarbert St Corner (follow the arrows!)on Little Valley Rd, approx 5km up from Tarbert St, on the gravel part (see map below) And look for the double gate/signs/people/tents/banners etc. The prize-giving will be at the The Stadium Tavern (aka ‘Top Pub’ and see map below) from approx 1.30pm (depends on last finisher a bit) in the annex bar, staff will direct you, go through the main bar.

We will be using SportIdent Timing with P-Cards (same as the Enduro) so you will have to dip at course controls to finish with a time. There will be multiple finish lanes. And you will need to unload the P-Card at the final check to get a result.
Race Start: 10:00am :: This will be on the land adjacent to Little Valley Rd, close to the sign-on area.
Race Finish: Approx 1:30pm and apres race/prize-giving approx 2.00pm at the Top Pub , Alexandra where great food and wholesome beer and wines will be on tap!

Course description:
This years new main course will follow mostly single trails and some four wheel drive tracks in the area to the east of Alexandra. We include flowing fast single track, technical rock features for your cycling pleasure. The main MAXXIS Linger and Die XC course will be approx 50km of these luscious rock encrusted, briar-lined trails.

A shorter (15km-ish) rec/family course will feature softer climbs and gentler descents so your kids will be tired after their loop with mum (or dad) needing a cold drink at the end. The $60 entry fee allows 1 adult rec rider (mum & dad and any kids you own) to ride with you. It’s about encouraging you and your kids… This event is the perfect Sunday wind down after a tough day at the Blossom Festival!
