Choose Your Challenge

Relaxed Recreational Challenge
This course is 6kms of flowing fun non-technical single track with the fun factor turned up to the max and climbing and technical factors turned down to the min for beginners and those wanting a more relaxed ride. This is a clover leaf circuit that comes back into the event center thrice. This means for primary age children and those who would prefer shorter stints, tag team changes can take place at the 2.8km, 4.5km or 6km marks within in each full lap. Parents are also welcome to escort younger riders if needed.

Smash the Mountain Challenge
This course is the core Tamworth Mountain Bike Park 10km racing circuit including our infamous panoramic
Central Mountain and classic XCO North Hill track plus the 6km Recreational circuit. Note: unlike the Recreational Challenge, all team members must be 13 years or older and be able to complete the full lap of this circuit for the lap to count.

This is a Mountain Bike Challenge not a Mountain Bike Race

So the Family Team of 5 can challenge the elite solo, challenging the Teenage Trio, challenging the 7 Super Masters, challenging whatever other team wants to rock up, roll around, have fun within each of two Challenge Options to support our Westpac Chopper.

Call your mates, motivate the family, convince yourself grab your bike, get out, get active and rise to the Challenge.
