  • 12 year old and younger must be able to complete the course in under one hour
  • 13 year old must be able to complete the course chosen in two hours
  • 14 year old must be able to complete the course chosen in two hours

Exceptions are made, when the rider has is younger but can complete the course in the prescribed time. (eg If a 10 year old rider can complete the 13 KM course in one hour, they can enter this category).

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 10.30am 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 9.30 – 10.00am at Registration. All riders need to pay $5 for a participatory licence. All riders in these two events get a race plate medallion and lots of throwaway prizes. One lucky sub junior rider will win a bike. This will be drawn at noon. You have to be there win!
