Racing in Australia’s richest mountain biking series, the 2016 Evocities MTB Series, is set to continue with $8,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs in the third race of the series to take place in Australia’s country music capital on Sunday, 7 August 2016.

The ‘Tamworth Stan’s NoTubes 5 hour’ is an event for solo riders, pairs and teams being held at Tamworth Mountain Bike Park, a purpose-built international standard facility.

Series Coordinator, Murray Wood said the third race of the Evocities MTB Series will be an endurance format race, so it’s all about solos and teams doing as many laps as possible.

“Tamworth’s track is renowned for being a classic ‘whole box and dice’ purpose-built mountain biking track that riders love to race,” Mr Wood said.

“The full circuit will be 10 kilometres of purpose built, flowing mountain biking track with jumps, berms, rocks, gardens, chutes, creeks, gullies and bridges through a mountain with spectacular views of the city of Tamworth.”

“In addition to the solo riders and pairs who race the full circuit, recreational teams can race a sub-circuit and for the primary school aged kids there will be a novelty kid’s event on the separate kids track.”

“The ‘Tamworth Stan’s NoTubes 5 hour’ will have something to cater for riders of all ages and skill levels, not to mention there’s $8,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs and the Westpac Helicopter Crew will be catering the day and raising money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service,” Mr Wood 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.
