The X Scenic MTB Race will be held on Sunday Feb 8th in Centennial Park, Timaru. 

This year there are two races:

The Sport race is 20km (1½ laps) beginning at 10am.

The Elite race is 40km (3 laps) starting at 1pm. 

On-line entries click here or pick up entry forms at local bike shops.

The Elite race will also run as the second round of the new South Island MTB Cup and the 5th round of the NZ MTB Cup.  If you want to enter and get points towards the cups then click here for more details and on-line entry forms.

This is a fantastic course that has been designed by SC MTB Club members Kelvin, Alan, Simon and Wally plus others.  Many thanks to them for their continuing input.

It is a demanding course that is a good test for all levels of rider, but is more suited to intermediate/senior experienced MTBers.

On Thursday 22nd January at 6.30pm Chris Thomas, the race organiser will be leading a bunch ride around the new course (one lap is 13.5km).  Meet at the lake car park.

Chris is looking for support from club members to help with the mark out, set up, marshalling and pack out over the weekend of 6th (Waitangi Day), 7th and 8th February. 

Please spread the word as this is a great opportunity to have the best cross country riders in NZ right here in our backyard and we want to put on a great show for them.

If you can help make this a successful event and showcase for Timaru, please contact Chris Thomas directly:
