MORE INFO:

Thanks to the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective and Perth Mountain Bike Club, round 3 of the 2017 WA XCO state series will bring riders to the Kalamunda Mountain bike trails. You'll want to loosen up those headsets, because this one is going to get twisty!

The race village will be located at the Camel Farm, rego will open from 8am for race plate pickup if you don't already have one.

The race will run on the trails to the west of the Camel Farm. There will be plenty of good spots to spectate, support or heckle your friends on the hill - so bring your supporters and spread the word, this will be a great race for someone new to get a taste of XCO racing.

The lap length is approx 5.5km, incorporating most of the single track in the area and passing opportunities on fireroad.

The race trail will be marked on the morning of the race and will open for practice at 7.30am to 08.30am

Registration
You must register online before midnight on Thursday the 11th of May. As usual, there will be no entries on race day.

The race will be located within the Perth hills drinking water catchment area, which means everyone attending will need to observe a few simple rules:
- Use the provided public toilets at the race village and the camel farm, keep your nature break out of the nature!
- If we encounter wet conditions, keep out of flowing streams and pools.
- No animals, including dogs, are permitted to accompany the participants, volunteers or supporters on the day.
- Please hold onto any rubbish and dispose of in one of the bins provided.
- All event parking will be at The Camel Farm as directed by our friendly volunteers.
- Please obey any other directions from the race organisers and volunteers.

If you are keen to lend a hand with this event please email us at info@perthmtb.asn.au. We will need assistance with the marshaling and general race assistance. With three waves this presents a great opportunity to race and give a little back. Please consider helping us and KMBC on the day.

Any questions please feel free to email info@perthmtb.asn.au
