Tamworth Mountain Bikers are so pumped about this race. We want Mountain Bikers young and old to come along for weekend do what you love, on the MTB tracks that we love.
Tamworth 5hr” Smash the Mountain starts at 9:15am on Sunday 6th May. This is a 5 Hour endurance race over a 10km loop – 'is all about Solos. Pairs and Young Guns doing as many laps as possible with the last lap starting under the 5 hr limit.
Immediately after the flag drops, there is a 1.5km KOM/QOM Challenge with cash prize for the first Male and Female to the top.
A new category called Young Gun Teams 3 plus has been established. It is only available to 12 - 17 year olds and they must be in a team of 3 or more. The only riders allowed to transition at the mid loop are the Young Guns. This creates a short fast race format for the younger riders, an opportunity to get a podium placing. Fast fit young riders can still sign up for the open solo or pairs.
- The Recreational loop will accommodate teams to enable the not so experienced riders to ride on the shorter 6km of the Main event. This will ensure all calibre of rider is able to ride in the event.
- Novelty kids events on our separate purpose built kids track in and around our Event Centre will run throughout Sunday.
- Our Pump track (also in the Event Centre) will be open and pumping all weekend.
