Welcome to the 2017 PBM Hardrock 6hr race loop, in the Kiwarrak Mountain Bike Park, Taree.

This year's course is focussed on providing competitors with a number of technical sections, but without sacrificing the fast and flowing characteristics that all riders love about the Kiwarrak trails.

Course Designers Bruce Pain, Dean Brame, Chad Vowles and Michael Eyb opted to include a number of A/B lines this year, which will provide more skilled riders with the opportunity to tackle harder sections of the course. As with most A/B lines in races, racers who negotiate the A line will be rewarded with the reduced time it takes to ride the A line as opposed to the B Line.

This may well be one of the last chances that riders will get to ride the iconic Kiwarrak MTB Park trails as they currently exist. Forestry Corporation plans to log these compartments of forest within the next 6-12 months, meaning that some of the trails may be lost to these operations.

We encourage you to join us for the 2017 PBM Hardrock 6hr Mountain Bike Race and even come up beforehand to train on the track
