MTBO 5 - WA Middle Dist Championships
Sunday, 24 July 2022
Entries are now open and will close on Thursday 21st July at 11:59pm. This is a PRE-ENTRY event through Eventor for Championship classes. Enter on the day for non-Championship classes will be available for all courses and e-bikes are welcome, as are runners. Details of the courses are in the Information flyer in Eventor. Start lists for Championship courses will be posted in Eventor as soon as possible after entries have closed.
The competition area is remnant jarrah/marri forest with a complex network of tracks and some old gravel pits. There are large blocks of private property and plantations (out of bounds) bordering with the forest. The tracks are mainly vehicle tracks, many of which been dug up with mounds of gravel to impede vehicle access. Trail bike detours are common around or over these mounds but some have quite dangerous pits adjoining. Care will need to be taken when approaching these mounds. The track surfaces are mainly well-worn gravel with exposed laterite and the usual gumnuts.
The assembly area is at the eastern end of Pickering Brook Road in Pickering Brook (where the road is blocked off): park on the side of the road. The event is not accessible from the Ashendon Road end. The pre-start is adjacent to the assembly area. Coffee is available a few kilometres away at the junction of Canning Road and Pickering Brook Road.
