Junior MTB Race Series

2020/21 Junior MTB Race Series

This is a great opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to try racing in a fun, inclusive and low-key way.

 

This year we are running seven races over six venues:

  1. Saturday 7 November 2020 – Dinner Plain
  2. Saturday 28 November 2020 – Bright
  3. Saturday 12 December 2020 – Falls Creek
  4. Saturday 16 January 2021 – Mt Beauty
  5. Saturday 6 February 2021 – Beechworth
  6. Saturday 27 February 2021 – Yackandandah
  7. Saturday 27 March 2021 — Bright

All courses and duration of races is set to suit the developmental stages of junior riders, there will be two courses running at each event, a shorter, easier course for younger riders and a slightly longer course for older riders.

 

Whilst some riders will be racing to beat their friends, others will be there for the opportunity to ride a different track with loads of other kids from around the region, everyone is welcome, no matter how fast or slow, as long as they come with a friendly attitude, two wheels and a helmet!

 

Cost is $10 per race

 

A BBQ and series presentation will take place at the final race of the series.

 

  • A certificate and small prize will be awarded to top 3 in each category at each individual race.
  • Points are awarded on a sliding scale for all riders (best 4 races)
  • Series results will not be published until the end of the series as the main goal of the series is participation
  • Series prizes will be awarded to winners of each category with 3 or more competitors
  • To be eligible for a series prize, competitors must have raced in at least 4 races
  • special prizes awarded at the discretion of the race organisers.
