MTBO 6 - Lake Leschenaultia WA Middle Distance Champs
Sunday, 08 August 2021
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.

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!

TO MINIMISE THE SPREAD OF DIEBACK:
1. Keep to the tracks (this is an MTBO rule anyway).

3. At the start you will be required to spray your tyres with the provided methylated spirits.
