Rider Etiquette
Please be courteous to other riders while racing. Call ahead your intentions to pass and clearly state on which side you wish to pass. If you are caught up by someone in another category let them past ASAP. Any riders found to be behaving inappropriately will be disqualified.
If you find someone injured on course, please stay with that person and await the next rider, tell them to proceed to the Finish area and state position of injured rider, we will place you according to your position in the race and you get your next race entry for free.
***Please, please do not litter, what you take in, you must take home***
The Timing Team will be posting up results asap, so please be kind and refrain from asking them for your position while they are working. Live results will be available whenever possible.

The Down Hill State Champs will run at the Goat Farm on the same days as the XCO with practice on Saturday and finals on Sunday. The two courses will be independent and we look forward to a great weekend of racing in conjunction with Peel Districts running the DH.

Volunteers
PMBC and all associated events are run completely by volunteers. We would really appreciate your help. Please email us at info@perthmtb.asn.au. Thank you.

Race Info:
http://perthmtb.asn.au/node/52608

The course will be challenging as the GF always is but we are finalising plans for two options and potentially a world cup like feature near the race village, more info soon to come as we finalise plans.

Food and drink will be available with The Bicyle Barista and the PMBC fundraising crew running the BBQ and drinks tent.

So don't be shy the State Champs are for everyone to participate in just like any other cross country race and the Goat Farm is a great Challenge after a year of great racing around the State.

WestCycle and PMBC will also be running a Hints and Tips for State Champs session on the Saturday with Elite riders to give there insight into the right techniques for the farm. This is aimed at our competent riders who are thinking mmmmm am I ready for this. This will be advertised in the next couple of days separately on Facebook so watch out !.

Sprockets will also occur and we are planning a Handcycle Event too so it is all just going to be a crazy awesome weekend so get on down.

If you cant or don't want to ride though come along and help, watch, support and have a great time!.

Finally please share the post so the message gets around.

Regards

PMBC Race Team
