The South West Mountain Bike Summer Series is back – presented by Margaret River Off Road Cycling Association and Cape Mountain Bikers.
This is grassroots mountain bike racing at its best; the aim of the game is to get out on your bike each week, meet new people, have a laugh, be stoked and then have a yarn over a burger and a refreshing beverage afterwards! Behind all the fun is a hard-fought inter-club competition between MRORCA and CMB. Each time you race you will accumulate points for your club towards the overall title. So get involved, come represent your club!
If you have never taken part in a race or a formal mountain biking event before, this is the time to get involved! It’s not serious, it’s all about having fun. As before the Summer Series race format is two timed runs on beginner friendly descents, with cumulative time scored.
