Track

The target trails are sand based and provide a great all-weather surface during autumn and winter. The forest creates a micro-climate, which is warmer, sheltered and dry, so don’t worry about the weather. The relay track is at Target Reserve MTB Trails, off State Highway 1 by the Foxton Racecourse. Each lap is around 5km (15-20min) with a few moderate climbing sections, nothing more than 6-8 metres per climb.

Race Details

Race length is 5 hours plus one lap. Race start is at 9:45am. Hooter will sound at 2:45pm and course will be closed at the exit of the village. All riders on track at 2:45pm will complete the lap they are on which will be counted.  Places will be determined from the total number of laps and finishing order.

Electronic Timing will be used and tags are fixed to number plates with velcro.  Each team is given two number plates and one tag, which must be transferred to the next riders number plate.  It is the team’s responsibility to make sure the tag is firmly attached and does not come off during a lap.  Please return tags and number plates at the end of the race.

 

Due to race village space, only 1 car per team is allowed in the village. Cars in the race village can only leave after the race. There is plenty of parking outside the village.
