Meeting Point: 



We're Back to COLLIE for ROUND 7 of the 2017 WA XCO MTB Series!

We'll be based at the brilliant Harris River Estate Winery once again
Which is on 442 Harris River Road about 2km North of the Mornington Road Intersection.
(There will be signage on Harris River Road as you approach the HRE Winery)

The Race Course for the Seniors will be similar to the 2016 layout, leaving the Harris River Estate (HRE) Winery and heading into the front half of 'Ray's Trail' MTB trails and then into some new territory. Check out the Collie MTB, Crank'n Cycles, PMBC or WAMBA Facebook page for maps and more information.
It will be a mix of Fire Trail, Single Track, the famous Xylophone Bridge ride and some Winery Paddock goodness about 6km in length.

Harris River Estate has kindly provided their facility for use by the Collie MTB Club to run the State Round.
Their only request to people coming down is to not bring pets/dogs to the winery grounds
ALSO - If you're keen to have a sit down meal in the restaurant you'll need to book seats by calling the winery on 9734 4042

Okay Everyone,

Erik Here from Crank'n Cycles in Collie welcoming you on board for Round Number 7 of the Western Australian Cross Country Series.

We're going to have a great day on Sunday 30th July based from the Harris River Estate Winery down in Collie. If you've been at either one of the Collie rounds from the last couple of years - or the Northcliffe Fundraising Ride that was held last year - You'll already know what a great facility we have here to run Mountain Bike races.

If you've never ridden the HRE / Ray's Trail loop before - you'll be happy to know that there are no big long steep climbs... just a handful of short power climbs mixed in with some open fire trails at the start and finish of the loop - with busy - but flowing - technical single track in the middle. It's about a 6km loop.

Registration/plate pick up etc will be from 8am at the HRE Winery.

With this being the last race of the season will will require all riders to have their race plate checked and registered before the start of the race at the rego desk.
