The 2020 MTBA Fat Bike National Championships will be held on Cable Beach Broome, Friday the 15th of May, 2020 as a prologue race stage to The Gibb Challenge.
The Championship course will incorporate natural and improvised obstacles to create a unique race experience on the hard, flat, tidal sands of Broome’s iconic Cable Beach and the ancient songlines of the Yawuru. It’s the only beach cycling race event in Australia, and one of only two events of its kind anywhere in the World.
‘Fat Bikes’ are hybrid mountain bikes with wide, high volume, balloon tyres originally designed for the snow fields of the northern hemisphere. In Australia they’ve found favour amongst off road cycling enthusiasts for their unrivalled traction and agility on otherwise unrideable terrain including sandy trails and beaches.
The Championships are sanctioned by our sport’s peak national body, Mountain Bike Australia to recognise and award Australia’s National Champions in this unique cycling discipline. Categories for Men, Women and Youth will be contested across Elite, Expert, Masters (1/2), (3/4), (5/6), (7/8), Under 15 & Under 19.
Adults $20 Juniors $10 including Mountain Bike Australia Race Day Licence.
