It is the third race in the Cairns MTB club series
1 lap will be approximately 5 kms. Unlike the Elev8XCM the plan is to have no fire road what so ever 100% single track comprising some tasty descents and tricky climbs
The usual format is something like this [TBC]:
Elite men – 5 laps
Elite women – 4 laps
Masters men – 4 laps
Masters woman – 3 laps
Super masters – 3 laps
Juniors – 2 laps
The race will typically last 1:30 to 1:50 depending on your class and speed.
GIVE IT A CRACK, it is bloody good fun
