Australian MTBO completion rules will apply to all events.
SportIdent timing will be used for all events. All competitors will be required to use a SportIdent eCard. If you don’t own one, they will be available for hire when entering on Eventor under the Additional Services menu for $3 per event.
Competition maps will use the IOF standard 4×2 track system and will conform exactly to current IOF specs.
Please note that during these events, it is only permitted to ride on tracks which are marked on the map or on open areas of ground shown which are shown on the map as open land (100% yellow) – symbol 401.
