Carnival City Macsteel National MTB Race

October 26 @ 7:00 am

Carnival City MTB

This fourth edition of this fast and flat race, with a mix of single and jeep track. A choice of 60km, 35km and family friendly jeans.

60Km Route

The route starts and finishes inside the Carnival City outside entertainment area, west of the Casino.

Dubbed “the Race“, this route is suitable for all levels of rider, but with about 380m of elevation gain, this route is deceivingly tougher than it looks on paper. With a mix of single track, jeep track, district road, gentle gradients as well as some short punchy climbs, this is more than just a dirt-roadie race.

  • 3 Water points at 15Km, 33Km and 52Km, plus recovery drinks at the finish line;
  • Roaming bike mechanics, to assist with basic bike repairs

34Km Route

Dubbed the “Fun ride“, the event caters for the beginner to mid-level rider wanting to enjoy a mix of off-road terrains, i.e. jeep track, district road, some single track, minimal amounts of tar road and about 191m of elevation gain. Following the same route as the 60Km until the 18Km, before riding the final 16Km of the 60Km route. There is ample space for the 60Km riders to pass, but riders on this event are requested to keep left wherever possible.

  • 2 Water points at 15Km and 26Km, plus recovery drinks at the finish line;
  • Roaming bike mechanics, to assist with basic bike repairs

12Km or 6Km – Family Friendly*

This event is catered for the families that want to ride together, without worrying about any technically-challenging sections that riders would experience on the two longer distance events.

This event will take in two laps (12Km) or one lap (6Km) respectively on a route inside the Carnival City premises. Mostly graded tracks, with some minor drags (gentle uphills) and a few twists & turns.

Kids/parents have the choice to ride one or two laps, whichever suits their fitness and/or experience.
