CCMTB is hosting Round 3 of the NSW Junior Series on 29th of May 2016.
This will be run concurrently with our regular XC Rd 2.
Participants can choose one of three grades, A, B or C rather than grouping by age.
A guideline for grading,
A Grade 40mins recommended U19’s
B Grade 30mins recommended U15’s
C Grade 20mins recommended U13’s
This is just a rough guide and the kids can choose any grade they feel comfortable with.
Don’t think of the series as an Elite Rep Level competition, but one big club event.
All kids from across NSW are encouraged to enter for fun.
There are no maximum or minimum races that must be entered.

How to get here
Take the F3 from Sydney, take the Wyong Exit, turn left on to Cobbs Road and follow the road to the T-junction. Turn left towards Yarramalong for a couple of km’s and Red Hill road will be on your left as you come down the first hill. Continue up the dirt road (Red Hill Rd) and the trailhead is where the big green shipping container is.
From the North take the F3 and exit at the Sparks Rd / Toukley off ramp and turn right. After 300 meters at the T-junction turn left onto Hue Hue Rd. Follow this to the T-junction. Turn right towards Yarramalong. Red Hill Rd is a couple of Km’s on your left as you come down the first hill. Follow the signs to Tree Tops Adventure Park. Continue up the dirt road (Red Hill Rd) and the trailhead is where the big green shipping container is.
Rain kept a lot of riders away yesterday but those who did come kept the heat on for all 3 races of the short track format. The longest lap was around 3.4Km keeping each of the 3 races short and sweet.
In A-Grade Justin Millington relied heavily on his road racing tactics by sitting on Liam Flanagan’s wheel for all but the last half a kilometre. Not to be out-foxed, Liam got the better of Justin in race 3 for a well deserved win.
The B-Grade field did well to minimise the gap to first but Shane Gillett continues to be unstoppable especially over the shorter distances. The punters also welcomed 2 new faces of Andrew Stockwell and Matt Christie, well done and hope to see you again soon lads.
C and D Grades were combined so everyone could keep one another company and it also proved for some close racing. Commiserations to Peter Cullen with a broken rear derailleur denying him a clean sweep and congratulations to Paris Millington for taking advantage of the opening and beating Cameron Gilchrist home on Race 3.
Next Race is GE Rd 6 11 October. Hope to see you there.
