With the first ever round of the Cairns MTB club cross country series to be held this coming Sunday 14th September at Atherton forest mountain bike park we are sure all you guys and girls are interested in what the course will be, well here it is!
The Lap is 5.83km in length with 203 mts of climbing per lap – number of laps you have to do will depend on what class you enter
Up track 2 [V6 rock n Roll], cross the road, up the access road past 3Y junction, turn in Track 11 [Waterfalls], turn in to Trail 10 [Beady eye] and up to the hub, down Trail 5 [Ridgey didge], right in to trail 2 [Two tooth] past Georges pool, left at the fire road, across the dry creek and back across the road.
A condition of the QPWS permit is that the event cannot be run from within the park boundaries I.E. no parking, no sponsors tents etc [We have a plan to work on this condition for future events, please bear with us] so the Registration, sponsor porta shades, dunnys, pits etc will be set up in the trail head car park.
The start will be a 1000 mt drag race from the gate to the left turn in to the start of trail 2 where participants will proceed to do the required number of laps.
The park will be closed from 9.00am through to 3.00pm on the day of the race so if you want a ride during those hours why not have a crack at cross country, you never know, you might be faster than you think you are!
