Rid­ers head south for off-road event

Joondalup Weekender - - Sport -

THE North­ern Beaches Cycling Club (NBCC) will head south to host its first ever moun­tain bike event on Sun­day, March 25.

Round 1 of the WA Moun­tain Bik­ing As­so­ci­a­tion XCO State Se­ries will run in Mar­rinup, near Dwellingup and is ex­pected to at­tract hun­dreds of rid­ers and spec­ta­tors from across the state.

The Olympic-style cross coun­try event is a short cir­cuit race with A-C grades for women, A-E grades for men and ju­nior rac­ing for U9s, U13s, U15s and U17s.

“In the ab­sence of a lo­cal moun­tain bike cir­cuit in the north­ern sub­urbs, it was a coup for the club to se­cure an event,” NBCC pres­i­dent Chris Howard said. “Un­til we are able to get lo­cal off-road fa­cil­i­ties, our ‘home ground’ will be based in the Shire of Mur­ray.”
