REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN

Mini MTB Stage Races built for the Weekend Warrior!
WHICH ONE WILL YOU DO?

Riders will enjoy a weekend away, challenging themselves each day on some of Australia’s best trails, but once the riding stops, you will have just as much fun off the bike with friends and family to enjoy these beautiful tourism destinations.

Each event is an intro to the concept of stage racing, with short but challenging stages, packed with the best single track in each region, and only needing an average degree of fitness to complete. 

Our course designs are meant to create fun riding, with a lot of riders from our first series calling our events more like “Enduro/XC races”, thanks to the high percentage of flowing single trail and a lack of long, boring gravel road grinds in each stage. 

Each event has been curated to pair the best locations with the best trails, creating an awesome weekend away riding with mates. And to top it off we guarantee that the social side of the event will be just as much fun as the riding!  

Podium glory is also done differently at these events. Our search to crown the best Weekend Warrior uses a unique handicap system at each event, designed to recognise the riders who races to the best of their own ability. In effect each rider races themselves and then one who rides to the best of their ability tops the rankings each day! 

Best of all, most people will only need to take no more than one day off work to attend each event (rather than a whole week of leave to do most of the major XC Stage Races).  

Pick the event you want to do, but a word of warning, once you have done one you will want to do more!

STAGE ONE AT THE SUNNY 80!

Parklands will be hosting this cracker of a stage, as The Sunny 80 returns to Hidden Valley for the start and finish of what some say is one of the best days in all our events. 

Hidden Valley is right on the northern perimeter of the incredible trail network of Parklands, which has  over 30km of singletrack that is lovingly maintained by the awesome crew at Bushrangers MTB Club.

On this stage you can expect an incredible mix of diverse trails and flowing singletrack.  The stage design will once again features the best of Parklands’ trails, however this year our Course Director has made some revisions from last year’s course to make it a bit easier and even more fun! 

What’s that look like? The perimeter fire road sections that presented a brutal climbing challenge have gone, and the new course now cuts through the middle of Parklands out and back, and this slashed almost 500m of climbing from the old course. 

But we have kept the best of the singletrack in this stage including Bluetongue, Rookie Road, Cancer Tree, Rock N Roll, Lower and Upper NZ, Hoe Chi Ho and Road Rage. This results in a new stage distance of 30km with approximately 700m of elevation. The other addition to the stage this year is an optional re-route late in the course for riders toward the end of the field to cut 5 km off the overall distance, which will still make for an enjoyable stage but also leave a smile on your face and some energy in the legs for Sunday! 

If you are only planning to do one day, this is definitely the stage to pick as Parklands is one of Australia’s best mountain bike parks that has to be ridden to be believed. Hook up a one day leave pass entry, or go all in and join us for all three days from 7-9 June.
