*MTBA guidelines for youngsters “racing” advise that 12 years and under must not ride longer than one hour.

The 13KM junior course for the Willo is made up with two laps. We have adults riding with the young riders to keep an eye on them, so if any of them are struggling or if it looks like they will not complete the full two laps, they can pull out out one lap if they are not able to complete the course in an hour

Age used for race categories

The rider’s age is determined by what their age on Race Day (11th March 2018)

Sub Juniors

4 – 11 year olds race at the Event Centre on a small section of single track at the back of Registration. There are two categories for this race.

  • At 10am, the 7, 8, 9, 10 year olds will race.
  • At 11am the 4, 5, 6 year olds will race.

These age demarcations are flexible. This activity is designed to let all the younger kids have a go, whilst recognizing that their riding ability varies a lot. Talk to the volunteers at registration to help you decide which level your child can ride/race at. This is meant to be a fun activity not a real “race”! All sub juniors and juniors must register for this race between 10.00am & 11am at Registration. All riders need to pay $5 for a participatory licence. All riders in these two events get a race plate and a prize.
