The Hunter Mountain Bike Association is pleased to be part of the Hunter Schools XCO Mountain Bike Championships in 2018. This event is scheduled for 21/09/18 and will only be made financially viable with sponsorship.
We are hoping to keep entries to just $25 per child but we want this to include:
– National Park fees (both per rider and event application fee)
– Toilet hire
– Event t-shirt
– Medals for podium positions
– Championship jersey for each age group
– Named number plates

Please note that we are also planning on having the first ever HMBA night mountain bike race at Glenrock on the evening of that same date – further details for this event will be posted in late August – this will be something else!
After a very chilly start to the day a small but keen field hit the Monkey.
