PMBC presents - 2017 XCO State Series Round 5 - Forsyth Mill Chidlow 25.6.17

XCO Racing returns to the Forsyth Mill in June 2017 with the second year of this great race course being back on the racing calendar! Preliminary Laps and start times will be as follows:

Note: If Numbers are large we may choose to change to three waves - we will email all competitors already entered on Wednesday 21st if this is going to occur to advise adjusted start times.

We are looking to try and include a short race for the hand cycles guys if we can make a course for them, if we can do this it will occur between the waves and may slight push the 2nd wave start time forward 30 mins. I feel confident that everyone is in support of providing the HC guys with a race option if possible.
