The 2016 Evocities MTB Series has now reached the halfway point with racing set to continue in Wagga Wagga on Sunday, 4 September 2016 with $6,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs in the fourth race of the series.
The ‘Wagga Evocities 6 hour MTB Enduro’ is an event for solo riders, pairs and teams being held at Pomingalarna Park on the western outskirts of Wagga Wagga.
2016 Evocities MTB Series Coordinator Tracey Willock said the fourth race will be an endurance format race, so it’s all about solos, pairs and teams doing as many laps as possible.
“The full circuit is a 13km figure of eight loop through natural bushland which will cater for riders of all levels and abilities with plenty to test and satisfy the more seasoned riders,” Ms Whillock said.
“Unlike most endurance rides where laps completed after the six hour mark are counted, Wagga Wagga’s race has an interesting twist. For this event, riders must be back in transition before the six hours are up in order for their last lap to count.”
“In addition to the solo riders, pairs and teams who race the full circuit, there will also be a 30-minute event for the under twelves run on a 2km course adjacent to the transition area.”
“The Wagga Evocities 6 hour MTB Enduro’ will have something to cater for riders of all ages and skill levels, not to mention there’s $6,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs,” Ms Whillock said.
The generous prize money is on offer with the support of Evocities MTB Series sponsors including Fairfax Media; QantasLink; Forestry Corporation; NSW Mining; Charles Sturt University; Macquarie and Orange Anglican Grammar Schools; Spinifex Recruiting; Maas Group Properties; and Prime 7.
