The 100km Classic will again be part of the National Cross Country Marathon (XCM) Series as well as WA’s State Marathon Championship (click here to see the events in the series via the MTBA website).
This distance is a great event for those looking for the ultimate mountain biking challenge. Our course director, Tony Tucknott, is a passionate mountain biker (to say the least) and is always considering the mountain bike experience above anything else.
Course Maps will become available closer to the event.
The 100km Classic will consist of a two lap course in the Dwellingup surrounds. The event will start at the Dwellingup Football Oval, where the lead car will then escort riders out to Del Park Road to begin the first 60km loop. Riders will finish the first loop by returning back to Dwellingup Football Oval, where a feed zone will be located for participants to drop supplies before heading out on course for the 40km second lap. More information including a full description of the course will be available closer to the event.
The 100km Classic is self seeded start line. If you are a strong rider, move yourself to the front of the field; if you are just going through your paces, please remain closer to the back.
