MTB Tauranga Club Champs

Events & Details

Welcome to the webpage for the Mountainbike Tauranga Club Champs. We aim to encourage spectating and club culture building with this event to encourage strong community growth and rider progression. The Club Champs events will be held at Summerhill on the 6th and 7th April 2024.

Along with race category winners, we will be crowning our two club champs, male and female overall club champions. We will also be offering kids racing and an easy Enduro as well.

Overall Club Champions.

The overall club champions are determined by a cumulation of points from the following four events. Enduro Hard, XCO, XCE & XCC. The rider with the lowest number of points at the end of the weekend wins. The points structure is weighted so that both cross-country and gravity riders have a good shot of winning the overall competition.

*Riders must be club members to be eligible for placings or prize money.
