Event Information

Stop Press: discount for advising intention to come. See last para; deadline 9pm Monday.

Got a newly mapped college campus, and a MTB trail maze in close proximity. Get your money's worth! Should be of interest to elite wannabes as the international calendar is getting a knockout sprint where you'll have to do several sprints in the day. Also of interest to non-elites as we make our maps big enough to read.

The plan is for three 2km sprints which should take elite men 8min as they will get in the WOC knockout. For the rest of us we'll get anything from the standard sprint time of 12-15min up to 30min depending on your speed. Sprint A on the school campuses (there are three schools adjacent) will start between 10-10:30, jog 1km to the MTB Park for Sprint B 11-11:30, and jog back to Sprint C on the campuses 12-12:30.

Laid back organisation, you can do 1 or 2 courses if you wish, and you can drive between sprints if you wish. Controls will be partly ribbons (simulated air controls) with random SI stations. For a discount flick an email to Michael by 9pm Monday.  Pay on the day $7 for pre-orders, $10 otherwise, juniors half.  For littlies  we'll advise short-cuts. There won't be a lot of bling. Just 3 well-set courses on new areas.
