COVID-19 UPDATE

In response to the developing situation nationally concerning COVID-19 outbreaks and related restrictions, AusCycling, unfortunately, has made the difficult decision to cancel the AusCycling Mountain Bike Schools National Championships scheduled to be held on the Gold Coast from 13-15 August.  

This is obviously very disappointing for all involved however out of anyone’s control.  
Riders who have entered via EntryBoss can scratch from the event at any time to be provided with a full refund - https://entryboss.cc/  

We thank all our riders, partners, hosts and spectators for their understanding and cooperation.

These are challenging times and we appreciate the ongoing support of the cycling family as we navigate this together.

  • Cross-Country Time trial (XCT): Friday will commence with a prologue to determine participant seeding for subsequent events. The prologue will be a short (1-2 minute). Cross-country time trial on a grass surface inside the velodrome
  • Cross-Country Short Course (XCC): Following the prologue, the first points race will be a Cross-Country Short Course over a course of approximately 800m within the Gold Coast Cycle Centre Criterium area. Start order within each Year level will be based on the prologue results.
  • Cross-Country Olympic (XCO): The second day will be a XCO race day. Riders will start in their respective year group and race a course of 4-6km in length. Following the XCO, schools will select their best riders from junior, middle and senior levels to compete in a Team Relay event.
