INTRODUCTION XCO – CROSS COUNTRY
The 2018 Sunshine Series is a combination of races held by different clubs based in southeast Queensland. Depending on the category you selected you will be racing in either the Olympic Cross Country (XCO) format or in a timed race on the same course.
In the Sunshine Series, there will be five rounds between May and August, held in various locations throughout southeast Queensland. Based on finish positions in each race, riders will accumulate points, and the rider with the most points after the five rounds is awarded the ‘Series Champion’.
Prizes are awarded to the winners of each category, and every podium place-getter will also receive Queensland Mountainbike medals for their fine efforts. Riders will also receive points based on the finishing position in their category.
There is a category for everyone to participate, to match both skill and fitness. The race is a categorised mass start around a 4-6km course. The riders will compete on a predetermined number of laps. The first rider across the finish line after completing the set number of laps is declared the winner.
