MMBC Crank-It Cycles Winter Series

Winter is nearly upon us and that means the Manawatu MTB Club Winter Series is coming, again sponsored by our awesome local bike shop Crank-It Cycles.  Crank-It will be supplying a range of spot prizes at each round and a major spot prize, which will be up for grabs at the series prize-giving following the final race.

Following some discussion at the AGM, the committee have decided it is time to increase the cost of our popular Winter Series. We aim to keep the cost affordable for families with a cap on their entry fees. There are a few more costs involved with running the event but also maintaining trails, therefore it makes sense to do this. You will still get your drink and chocolate, heaps of spot prizes up for grabs as well as contributing to developing our club and trails.

Details for the series are:

Race 1 Sunday 17th May, Raumai

Race 2 Sunday 7th June, Raumai
Race 3 Sunday 28th June, Foxton
Race 4 Sunday 19th July, Raumai
Race 5 Sunday 30th August, Foxton
Race 6 Sunday 13th September, Raumai
Something for everyone, including a special course for under 13 year olds, Shorter or easier options for recreational as well as a main course for age group categories.
Registration from 12.30 pm
Race briefing at 1.15 pm
Racing starts at 1.30 pm
Round 6 registration will start at 10:30 am and the race at 11:30 am to allow an earlier finish so we can have a BBQ and prize giving after the race.
Entry fees
Members: $5 per person  (maximum $10 per family)
Non Members: $10 per person  (maximum $20 per family)
Grades and laps to be announced closer to the date once track configurations have been confirmed.
