Information

Please get in touch with us at cx@wsmtb.com if you can help with course setup on the morning of the races.

A valid Auscycling, MTBA or CA license is required. We do not issue day licenses anymore, but you can purchase a day license online here or if you are eligible, a free trial license is available here. The cost of entry is $20.

For riders racing in C-Grade any bike is welcome, however for A-Grade Men and A Grade-Women, in the spirit of cyclocross, a maximum tyre width of 35mm is required for the NSW/ACT Series but not for our club races. For B Grade men and Women CX and Gravel bikes with a maximum tyre width of 35mm is preferred but not mandatory.

NSW/ACT State Series (Race 4 July 18th only) point scoring: The NSW/ACT series categories align with the club categories, with 3 differences: For this round only those on cross/gravel bikes and 35ísh tyre width will collect points for the series, tyres 36mm and over will not be eligible but remain eligible for our own series results. The NSW/ACT series has a U17 (boys + girls) category that we do not offer in club races. If you enter A or B grade you will not be allocated any points in U17, you must select U17’s. U15’s is not an NSW/ACT Category, If you want to score points in the NSW/ACT club series you will need to ride up in U17’s, your points will still count towards your club u15 series points.

Sun Valley Reserve

The series will take place at Sun Valley Reserve, Sun Valley Road, Sun Valley NSW, 2777 (subject to change based on other location’s availability)
