    CX Round 2 – Postponed

    Location: World cup site behind the James Cook University – Smithfield Mountain Bike Park

    Host Club: Cairns Mountain Bike Club


    Event Details: 

    Plate pick up: 8:00am

    Racing from: 8:30am

    We have listened to the feedback and will make a few course changes for round 2.

    All the stepovers will all be one long 1 flat section with the short climbs and down sections being more angled (off camber) to put a new element of fun in there. The course flow will be much better! See course map below.

    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.

    Race format:
    5 laps total for race time, first across the line wins.
    Lap is about 1.3k, so it’ll be about 8 total race distance

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