This is Round 1 of a 5 Round Central Queensland XC series (Rockhampton and Gladstone MTB). Series points will be awarded for all places, series winners will be decided from the best 4 placings across the 5 rounds. Rocky & Gladstone MTB Club members who chose to work a round will receive average points for that round (limited to one round only).
No cash or sponsors prizes will be awarded for podium finishers, all entry fees will go towards building new club trails this year. A random draw may be held after the race if there are sufficient sponsors prizes.
