Results

Results are based on the total cumulative time across the stages.  The lowest time in each category will be the winner. In some cases (e.g. you have stopped to assist an injured rider) a derived time may be allocated to you for a stage. Penalties can also be allocated if riders do not adhere to the race guidelines or information given during the rider briefing on event day. You will receive points for each round you participate in within the series. These series points will go towards the series finale/round 5. Please note series points to do not count towards the State Championship, which is a stand-alone event to wrap up the season.

Mt Joyce

Mt Joyce – Round 4

Due to the ongoing trail maintenance at Mt Joyce we are relocating Rd 3 on June 5 to Garapine. The team at Trailworx is doing a great job of refreshing the trails out at Mt Joyce.

Unfortunately this is taking longer than planned and with the current dry conditions the trails are still very soft. As we don’t want to waste the significant investment that has been made by SEQ Water we have made the call to move this round to Garapine.

Garapine will operate a practice day this weekend and BMS will be operating shuttles.

All entries will be transferred automatically. If you are unable to make it to Garapine, full refund will be offered or we can transfer your entry to another event. please e-mail info@emsaustralia.net.au should you need a refund or transfer.

It is hoped that we will back at Mt Joyce on June 26.

Vehicle access from the carpark to the village is restricted to event vehicles.  Entrance to the carpark is via the Wyaralong Damgates off Beaudesert-Boonah Rd, Bromelton.
