This Sunday afternoon the 23rd of July marks the Tip Riders' return to racing. The last event we held was a super-fun 'Poker Run' race. The wet weather didn't dampen anyone's spirits and an awesome day was had by all. This Sunday's race aims to be just as fun and is suitable for beginners and experienced mountain bikers alike!
The Race, focussed at all ages and skill levels, will be a two hour timed race. This means that racers will ride around the racetrack for two hours, and the riders with the most laps completed after the two hour time has lapsed are the winners!
There are a bunch of different categories you can enter:
- A, B, C or D grades
- Solos or pairs
- Males, females or mixed.
This means you can definitely get amongst the action with whoever you want to ride with!
The race loop is another bottler, taking in some of the coolest trails in the forest. It's about 5kms long. Here's the trail list for the loop:
1. Start at EVENT CENTRE
2. The Box
3. The Whip
6. Two Dogs
9. Finish at the EVENT CENTRE, and go round again!
