I have been asked many times about what MTBA insurance covers.
So, I thought it would be easier to place a link to the Policy documentation.
Have a read, but please do not ask me any questions, I am only the messenger.
PMBC secured funding from MTBA to assist a junior state team going to the MTB nationals in Victoria in 2 weeks time (7 - 10 March). We also have support from "Rock and Roll MTB", Westcycle and Kauri Clothing.
The most pleasing thing for me is to see how much each and everyone of these juniors has improved over the last 3 months or so. All of this came together nicely today at the first XCO race of the season at Marrinup where everyone of the team performed above and beyond where they have ever ridden before. It was awesome!!
200 entries! This will be the biggest XC race in WA history and shows that MTB is going from strength to strength.
Just a note on the grades. We have had a lot more entries in Male Grades B and F than expected. If you think you might be in the wrong grade we can change you before the race on Sunday morning. Please check the lap times on the event page here: http://perthmtb.asn.au/node/45568
See you at number plate collection, 7:30 to 10:00am at the race course.

This is an introduction to the new grading system for 2014. We no longer have age based categories, except for U9 and U13 as they ride a much smaller course. You will ride with people that are as good as you, it will be competitive and you'll always have someone to yarn with as you ride.
Male - A, B, C, D, E, F
Female - A, B, C
U9 & U13
