Kooralbyn MTB Bike Park is

How to get there
Koorlabyn MTB Bike Park is 20minutes west of Beaudesert and about 1.5 hours from Brisbane and/or the Gold Coast.
Due to an event the weekend prior at Kooralbyn the Course map for the Round 2 will be available prior to that race.
To ensure that we look after each event site and minimise our impact on the environment the following conditions apply for entry into this series:
- No disposable goggle tear offs are allowed to be used.
- The disposal of food/rubbish packaging on the trail or maintain is strictly prohibited.
- The event reserve the right to penalise any rider whose actions are deemed to seriously damage the local environment.
- Vehicle restrictions apply to event venues e.g. no shuttles during an event, minimum access etc. This will be communicated before each event
- Riders must not store food and drinks on the trail (Food Stashes). Packaging left behind and uncontrolled food supplies may have a serious impact on local wildlife and the local environment.
- You must supply your own food and in some cases due to Covid Restrictions water and electrolyte.
Riders will have a non-competitive liaison stage between each of the timed stages. Results will be based on the total cumulative time across all the stages. The lowest time in each category will be the winner.
Riders may use any of the trails or fire roads that are not part of the timed sections to make their way to the start of the next stage. Note that care should be taken on fire roads as event vehicles will also be using these. Please do not ride up any race stage otherwise you will be allocated penalties.
Should a participant take longer than allocated on the liaison stage, the clock will start. The race director may choose to waive this penalty in extreme cases (e.g. where medical case has delayed racing). Mechanical and fitness issues will not be given any allowance in the start time.
The race stages will be in a scatter format which means you can race in any order. You just need to meet the overall race day time which will be announced the Monday prior to race day.
Stages will be taped where it is deemed appropriate. Taping will leave suitable line choices where possible, but it will not allow for any significant ‘cutting’ of race stages. Where course tape is only present on the outside of a corner, this defines the route.
Any competitor seen to be crossing course tape, marker posts or taking any route deemed to be off the official race track will be penalised. There must be no interference with the track such as removing rocks, roots or branches. Any competitor deemed to be interfering with the track will be penalised. Creative line choice is allowed, however, creating your own trail/line is not allowed. If a commissaire or marshal witnesses or receives unbiased witness evidence, the rider will be penalised.
Timing: Timing readers are located at the start and finish of each stage. Prior to starting the event, riders must tag the CLEAR timing control point and then the START timing control point. Each rider will be issued with a timing device on the morning of the event that will activate the timing control points, this is to be attached to your wrist. Please make sure when identifying which wrist to wear it on the device is not next your any Smart Watch (ie Garmin/Apple etc) as may effect the accuracy of the timing device.
At the start line: Riders must be stationary, one foot on the ground and within the starting area (no rolling starts) when they start each stage. Riders will start each stage at 30 second intervals in a scatter format.
It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure that they pass close enough to the timing points for their chip to read. (within 1 meter). Time penalties may be applied for those who fail to do this.
On completion of all stages for the day you MUST download your timing results at registration. No download no time!
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.
Prizes: In 2021 we will introduce a prize pool of $10,000 to be awarded across the races for podium winners (1st – 3rd) in all categories.
The Queen Stage: One Special Stage per race will be nominated as the Queen Stage. The winner (per category) of the Queen Stage will be awarded bonus series points. The points are as follows Men: 50 Point Bonus, Women: 50 Point Bonus U21/Master Men: 30 Point Bonus U21/Master Women: 15 Points Bonus.
The aim of the Queen stage is to provide a target for riders who need extra series points, and to provide an exciting focus on the longest, hardest or crux stage of every race. Expect some hard fought Queen Stage victories this season.
Series Points: are allocated to all participants who complete an entire round of the series. If you have moved categories during the series (e.g. Sport – Expert) you will only receive points within the category you participated in.
1st place – 520
2nd place – 450
3rd place – 420
4th place – 400
