The Goat Farm returns! PMBC bring you the 2017 WAMBA XCO State Champs in one of the premier riding locations in WA.

Well its that time to race for total glory and be the State Champion for the next twelve months or just be able to say im ranked XX in WA and have bragging rights all year.

UCI/MTBA grading will be in place for this event and you can check all the grades out on the links below or through the entry page on register now.

So don't be shy the State Champs are for everyone to participate in just like any other cross country race and the Goat Farm is a great Challenge after a year of great racing around the State.

Sprockets will also occur so it is all just going to be a crazy awesome day of racing so get on down.

If you cant or don't want to ride though come along and help, watch, support and have a great time!.

The Course
The Courses will be marked on the Saturday in the afternoon. You will be able to familiarise yourself with the course on Saturday but please be advised you will be riding without club support on the Saturday.

There will be two course one for the elite and expert riders and one for the other grades as determined by the Race Director Tony Tucknott. We will ensure the course is challenging and fun to encourage you all to come along and test yourself.

Rider Etiquette
Please be courteous to other riders while racing. Call ahead your intentions to pass and clearly state on which side you wish to pass. If you are caught up by someone in another category let them past ASAP. Any riders found to be behaving inappropriately will be disqualified.
If you find someone injured on course, please stay with that person and await the next rider, tell them to proceed to the Finish area and state position of injured rider, we will place you according to your position in the race and you get your next race entry for free.
***Please, please do not litter, what you take in, you must take home***
The Timing Team will be posting up results asap, so please be kind and refrain from asking them for your position while they are working. Live results will be available whenever possible.

Volunteers
PMBC and all associated events are run completely by volunteers. We would really appreciate your help. Please email us at info@perthmtb.asn.au. Thank you.

Finally please share the post so the message gets around.

Hi Team just wondering if the A-Lines will be in the course for the second wave or only the first wave?

Please let me know so I can enter Expert instead of Masters (if Expert has the A-Lines)

Cheers,
Kerky
