Cyclocross Round 1

CX Round 1

Location: Smithfield Mountain Bike Park

Host Club: Cairns Mountain Bike Club


Cost: $15 + any licence needed

Rego sign in: 8am

Racing starts: 8:30am

New for 2019 cyclocross is coming to the Smithfield MTB park. Racing is suitable for all riders with the loop being short and fast, with wood features to run and a legit sand section. The race circuit is all around the Vmass world cup site, so spectators can watch the whole lap. The event will go ahead even if it’s raining, that why we are using the VEMASS area so we don’t damage any trails. (it’s more fun in the rain).

Race format:

6 laps total for race time, first across the line wins
Lap is 1.3k, so approximately 11-12k total race distance. See course map below.

Event location:

World cup site behind the James cook university

Race is more of a sprint, with fast and action packed fun. We will be running a mountain bike class also, but we encourage everyone to give it a go on road/cyclocross bikes
