The series will take place at Yellomundee Regional Park (subject to change based on other location’s availability) The series will be using the existing trail network, with each timed stage focusing on the more technical descending trails at the venue. A typical round will be rideable on any kind of Mountain Bike. However, a Dual Suspension Trail bike would be most suitable.
