Description

The Jacks Ridge Triple X Cross Country marathon is one of those must do events on the mountain bike calendar.  Its grass roots club racing at its best!

This event includes two separate race distances of 100km and 50km for both Solo and Team riders. Over all there are 20 categories to choose from over the two separate races.

The track length is 12.5km so our 100k riders and teams will do 8 laps and 50k riders will do 4 laps.

This course is the main Jacks Ridge single track with sections of fire roads and will include the Dead Cow section.

The Brian Cockbain Memorial Trophy

The fastest male and female solo riders who compete in the 100km race, regardless of their chosen category (except E-Bike categories), will be announced as the winners of the Brian Cockbain Memorial Trophy.

Junior Participation

We encourage juniors ages 11+ to grab a mate and race the Triple X even if they have never raced before.  We want you to come away with a smile on your face and therefore the race director reserves the right to adjust the junior lap or limit a riders laps if it is deemed necessary.

We ask that all junior riders please where possible complete a lap of Jacks Ridge prior to the event to familiarise themselves with the track.

"Scratch" Function

Have you already entered the event, but then for some reason you are unable to attend on race day? No problem, just use the SCRATCH function to withdraw from the event and receive a refund.

To protect junior riders our races comply with guidelines set by Auscycling.  These guidelines are designed to manage the amount of time a junior rider is allowed to race for and varies from discipline to discipline.  We would rather juniors went hard for a shorter time and finished with a smile rather than doing too much and ending up busted and disappointed!

The minimum age to participate in the Triple X is 11 (age as of 10th July) in our Junior Team of 4 in the 50k.  Under Auscyling rules U13 riders are allowed to ride for 1 hour and therefore will be limited to a maximum of 1 lap per rider.

Under 13 riders will NOT be given permission to ride up in a Junior Team of 2.

Riders under the age of 11 will not be permitted to ride.

Riders should complete roughly the same amount of laps as each other, however dispensation may be made for mechanical failure.

Please notify the race director if for some reason a team mate has to withdraw from the race.

Technical assistance outside of the race village is not permitted unless from another rider.  Riders may replace wheels and other mechanical parts during the race but must complete the race on the same frame.

Teams utilising an ebike will be required to register under the ebike category even if other members of the team are not on ebikes.

There are no seperate age categories for ebike participation.

Rider under 19 are not permitted to race in the ebike category.
