The Australian Mountain Bike series hits Thredbo.
Posted on Friday, 2nd of December 2011
The Australian mountain bike series will take on a whole new look this summer, with two new exciting formats to be introduced which will favour riders and spectators alike. The 2011/12 season will be split into two, with the cross country riders vying for the ‘All Mountain Cup’ and the downhillers contesting the ‘Gravity Cup’. The new formats will allow for growth in both disciplines, by offering riders the chance to compete in additional events over the weekend.
The All Mountain Cup will include a number of additional elements over the course of each two-day event. Riders will compete in a stage-like environment, in which performance results will be tallied to determine the overall event winner.
In addition to the centrepiece Olympic Cross Country event, other formats such as the cross country eliminator (four-cross for cross country), cross country time trial, cross country enduro (25km to 50km), Super D (downhill cross country) and the return of the short course event will be scheduled over the weekend of competition.
In the Gravity Cup, all downhill classes will now have seeding races on the Saturday, followed by finals on the Sunday.
The Thredbo Round of the series will be held on the weekend of December 11th and 12th.
