How to Enter
Online registrations through MTBA. Link will be provided soon.
Please note: This year Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) is covering the insurance of all riders through their mass participation licence so riders DO NOT need to be MTBA members or pay for day licences.
To register online please have the following information ready to go: Name and DOB of each participant, contact details for the teacher or parent delegate (name, phone and email), school name and address and credit card payment.
Primary School Challenge:
The 2020 Primary School Challenge will be set similar to Perth MTB Club Sprocket races and follow MTBA rules with regards to timing. Depending on numbers we will race Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6 in either one group or as two separate races.
Students will be given a small track (approx. 1-2 km) and will have approx. 25 minutes to complete as many laps as they can in that time. Places 1, 2 and 3 will be awarded an individual medal and all riders will receive a participation medal. Students will have practice time and Rock and Roll Mountain Biking coaches will be onsite to help. This is a fun race so teachers and parents will be encouraged to ride with students around the course.
**Suitable for all students that can confidently ride a bicycle. Please note that bikes need to meet safety standards, knobby tyre, front and rear brakes. Bikes can be made available at no extra cost from Rock and Roll Mountain Biking. Please book via email or phone (Jen 0410 949 182 / email@example.com)
Primary school students can race up a year group at the discretion of parents and schools (for example if a student already races). No students can race down a year level. The registration is not based on ages but on year level at school.
Senior School : RACE CONDITIONS
The race format is a cross country (XCO) team event. Each event will be a mass start event. Each rider completes the required number of laps, with the rider’s place determining the points he or she gains.
The team with the HIGHEST total number will be the winner. Second highest points will be second and so on.
A team, must have three (3) riders. You can enter all boys, all girls or mixed teams.
Each member within a team MUST be from the same school, and each team member must be in the correct year for that category.
The team rider must complete in the current year they are attending at school, there are no age categories, only school year categories.
Students from a lower year category may race in one of the higher school categories, but NO student will be allowed to race down a year category.
Students are able to race more than one race event during the day, as long as they meet the above conditions.
Three (3) year group categories will be catered for, each with male/female/mixed sub-categories. The group categories are as follows:
1. Junior High: Years 7 and 8.
2. Middle High: Years 9 and 10.
3. Senior High: Years 11 and 12.
Students from Year 6 will be allowed to race in a Junior High team, as long as they attend the same parent school.
Students from a school with insufficient numbers to form their own team, can enter an individual rider to race. They can race for an overall place, but as they will not meet the team conditions, the school will therefore not place in the team event.
The courses will be set to be interesting and challenging for a wide range of fitness and skill levels.
Race Laps and Times
To protect the junior riders MTBA has strict maximum riding time regulations in place. Each event must comply with MTBA rules, event organisers are required to meet these rules. This limit will be enforced, thus each event will have a cut off time. After this time the race will finish, any riders still on course will be given a finishing place and will have been deemed to have completed the race.
Junior High (Years 7 & 8): Approx course length 3-4km, approx race time 45-60 mins
Middle High (Years 9 & 10): Approx course length 3-4km, approx race time 50-65 mins
Senior High (Years 11 & 12): Approx course length 6-7km, approx race time 60-75 mins
