After 10 years of racing at Cobble Hill, race organizers feel they have the perfect combination of single and double track trails, with course distance dialled in at 21 km for Experts, 14 km for Intermediates and 7 km for Beginners, and enough tough climbing to satisfy a billy goat! Expect a similar route to 2015 with some variations to explore some of the new trails built on Cobble Hill over the last year.
The race begins at 12:00pm for the Experts, then a 1 minute stagger for the Intermediates and then another 1 minute stagger for the Beginners.
Bring the Kids!
Cobble Hill Mountain is fortunate to have the Cleasby Bike Park located at the base of the mountain which has beginner friendly pump track and jump lines for the young rippers to ride while Mom or Dad are off racing.
The course is climbing to the summit this year and the tired racers are going to need all the help they can get. We are encouraging spectators to make their way to the summit during the race to cheer on the racers. We will provide some cowbells and noisemakers during registration. Costumes are encouraged.
Every racers will receive a BBQ ticket along with a chance to win some awesome draw prizes.
The winner of each category will receive a coveted custom made mug.
