Several natural terrain obstacle course short sections set over various terrain – including hills, boulders, logs, drop offs! Different colour markers within each section determine the “line” riders take according to their grading – the higher the grade, the more difficult the line.
Skill is demonstrated by the riders in overcoming different obstacles without stopping or allowing the feet to touch the ground. Riders do 4 laps of each of the 5 sections in the morning and after lunch break another 4 laps of each in reverse direction (number of laps may be varied at discretion of COC).
Points are accrued per “fault” such as:
- foot dabbing (1 point per dab max of 3),
- stopping, bike outside marked course and crossing tracks or missing a marker scoring a 5 or fail,
- a score of zero being a “clean”.
Points are tallied and the rider with lowest score is the winner. Trophies are awarded for each grade at the end of the day and at the end of the year Championship trophies are awarded.
Working Bee required for section setups on the Saturday.
Observers and helpers needed – please bring a helper – more helpers, less time each helper is needed!! Try observing or marking it’s fun - it really is!
