This is classic cross-country lap racing at its best – race solo or in teams for four or seven hours!
For the first time Rocky Trail heads to Orange and we will be racing at Kinross State Forest with thanks to the local Orange MTB Club. This will be most likely be your last chance to race on these infamous mountain bike trails, before the scheduled logging activity by NSW State Forests, so come and enjoy the lush pine forest trails.
The Kinross mountain bike trail network is located just 5 minutes out of town and they are pure flowy trail goodness with that distinct fresh pine forest smell. We’ll be sure to use every bit of terrain on offer and will showcase the amazing mix of pine forest and native vegetation that surrounds the event centre.
The trails are managed by the Forestry Corporation and built and maintained by the Orange Mountain Bike Club. Camping is allowed at this venue.
All day The track is marked and you can practice on it but we won’t have any services (marshalls, first aid) in place
