Mountain Biking North Otago designed another fantastic course with a good mix of fast flowing downhills, tight twisting uphills and the odd jump for those that were keen. The track used elements of the last race course but in reverse, and was a bit longer with some fast and fun downhill. The track was bone dry making for some fast lap times on the longer course. An overcast morning greeted the riders, making for good conditions to race in.

All competitors completed as many laps as they could in 30mins.
