Grassroots mountain bike racing at its best! Get out on your bike, meet new people, have a laugh, be stoked and then have a yarn over a burger and a refreshing beverage afterwards!
If you have never taken part in a race or a formal mountain biking event before, this is the time to get involved! It ain’t serious, no one cares how fast you are, it's all about having fun. The Summer Series takes place on Thursday afternoons over the summer school holidays with a race format of two timed runs on beginner-friendly descents, with cumulative time. Behind all the fun is an incredibly hard-fought-for-sheep-stations inter-club competition between Dunsborough and Margaret River (MRORCA), culminating in the fancy dress Humble Cup and post-series windup at the Brewhouse.
