MTBO 6 - Lake Leschenaultia WA Middle Distance Champs

Sunday, 08 August 2021

Lake Leschenaultia

Come to Lake Leschenaultia to enjoy mostly gently undulating terrain. Each course traverses bushland and a lakeside section, mostly on fire breaks but with some single tracks too.

Pre-entries are now open in Eventor, and are required to enter the championship events. Pre-entries close at 23:59 on Wednesday 4 August.

For those looking for a more relaxed and non-championship kind of day, entry on the day is available for select courses (see  Information Flyer >> here)

This is a great location for a picnic after your competition, and yes, there is a café!

 

Registration: Pre-entry via Eventor preferred. Enter on the day for select courses. Cash please as credit card payment may not be available;
Start times: 9:30 am – 10:30 am;
Courses close: 1:00 pm sharp. Please return to the assembly area by then even if you have not completed your course;
Course lengths: see Information flyer
Bring: Water; bike; helmet; mapboard (a limited number of loan boards available); SI stick and compass (loans available); sunscreen; insect repellent;
Facilities: Toilet and cafe

Directions: From the intersection of Roe Highway and Great Eastern Highway, drive ~24 km east, then turn left into Old Northam Road. Drive 2.1 km. At the roundabout take the first exit (left) onto Thomas Road. After ~350 m turn right just past the Post Office onto Rosedale Road. Drive 2.2 km then turn left into Lake Leschenautia and then turn right, drive ~350 m and arrive at the event centre in the parking area on the west side of the lake.

TO MINIMISE THE SPREAD OF DIEBACK:
1. Keep to the tracks (this is an MTBO rule anyway).
2. Clean footwear and bike (especially tyres) prior to coming to the event (bring a dustpan brush).
3. At the start you will be required to spray your tyres with the provided methylated spirits.
