Sign-on: at Ferris Road Brewery, from 9:00am and on the day entries will be an extra $10.00 (please enter & pay online if poss).
When entering online, please pay as close to the entry time as possible. It makes keeping entry things tidy and acknowledging your payment so much easier! This will help reduce us chasing you for payment and you chasing us to ask if your payment has been received.
Race Briefing: 9:45am :: Race Start: 10:00am :: Coffee & pre-race nourishment available here. 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.
Race Start: 10:00am :: This will be in the rail trail car-park just over the road rail bridge/Little Valley Rd. It is where the pump track/jumps are and well signposted, rest easy.
Race Finish: Approx 1:00pm and apres race/prizegiving at the Ferris Road Brewery where great pizzas and wholesome craft beers will be on tap!
The course in general 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 20-30km of these luscious rock encrusted, briar-lined trails. We are planning on having timing that will allow us to have a ‘King of the Mountain’ and ‘Fast Downhill’ stage winners. Just a wee plan at the mo’.
You will be carrying SportIdent RFID cards on your right wrist and we use SportIdent Section Start & Finish RFID Controls for this events timing. Most are familiar with these but we’ll give a quick demo at briefing anyway.
A shorter rec/family course will feature softer climbs and 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!
