2016 Evocities MTB Series Coordinator, Tracey Whillock, said with only two rounds remaining in the Evocities MTB Series, Dubbo was preparing to make the most of being part of Australia’s richest MTB series.

“After an extremely wet winter which resulted in the postponement of both the Dubbo and Orange races, we’re thrilled the warmer weather is finally here and that the track has dried out enough to host the sixth round of the series on Sunday, 20 November,” Ms Whillock said.

Ms Whillock said the Dubbo leg of the 2016 Evocities MTB Series will take place at the Scabbins Flat, Homestead Reserve at Geurie (Arthurville Rd) and will be a combination of three single track loops for singles, pairs and teams combining the Oaks and Homestead trail networks through the “link” which runs alongside the Macquarie River and under the Arthurville Road Bridge.

“Following feedback from last year’s competitors and the Dubbo MTB Club we have shortened the track by 2.5km to a 13.5km loop which is fun, flowy and fast with plenty of room to overtake and lots of thigh-challenging climbs followed by fast sweeping downhills.”

The Dubbo Junior Rugby Club will be catering on the day with a fundraising sausage sizzle, while a band performs live music to entertain spectators and waiting riders.

The Evocities MTB Series is the richest mountain biking series in Australia thanks to the generous support of sponsors including Fairfax Media; QantasLink; Forestry Corporation; NSW Mining; Charles Sturt University; Macquarie and Orange Anglican Grammar Schools; Spinifex Recruiting; Maas Group Properties; and Prime 7.

The 2016 Evocities MTB Series is supported by Destination NSW.
