Subaru National Mountain Bike Series - Pemberton 23-24 January 2016
Pemberton Mountain Bike Park is the venue for the Subaru National Mountain Bike Race Series following the 2015 event.
Cross Country (XCO). O is for Olympics. XCO is the mountain bike discipline in the Olympic Games and is short (ish), sharp and sweet in a painful kind of way. An XCO course will be between 4km and 6km in length and depending on your category, you’ll race for between 60 and 90 minutes. That means ample opportunity to lose your legs, find them again, nail the tricky bits and enjoy the descents. More details are provided at the Australian National Mtb page.
