Pilbara News - - Sport - Amanda Ewin

The Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club’s cham­pi­onship se­ries starts this Satur­day.

The com­pe­ti­tion will in­volve a 4km marked course rid­den nu­mer­ous times, de­ter­mined by race cat­e­gory — elite, ex­pert, sport or ju­niors — with a men’s and women’s divi­sion in each.

Tro­phies are up for grabs for those who are keen, oth­er­wise rid­ers can take part just for fun.

Cham­pi­onship races are de­signed with all skill lev­els in mind and the club uses a state-ofthe-art tim­ing sys­tem.

There will be nine cham­pi­onship races between now and Septem­ber, with each race held on a dif­fer­ent course, which will be marked out be­fore­hand so rid­ers can prac­tise as much as they like.

The club held a so­cial poker run last week­end, with a huge turnout of 58 rid­ers between seven and 61 years of age.

With the event’s suc­cess, the club plans to have more so­cial rides — a great way to en­joy spec­tac­u­lar scenery and great ca­ma­raderie. So­cial rides are held reg­u­larly. To stay up to date, join the Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club on Face­book.
