MoreTon Bay MTB Series - Race 3: Back Stage Triple (XC Stage Race)

09-03-2017 12:40pm

Finally a stage race for us all! Tackle three diverse stages across 2 days with the aim of recording the fastest cumulative time across all three stages.

STAGE 1: TIME TRIAL (SAT AM)
Stage 1 kicks off Saturday morning with a heart pumping 4.5k Time Trial. This is your time to shine as you smash out a fast solo lap shredding up the 4.5k track. This stage will start and finish at Race HQ, so theres plenty of action for spectators and lots of encouragement for our riders.

 

STAGE 2: ELIMINATOR (SAT PM)
Stage 2 sees riders tackling an all new course across a 7.5km lap. Starting in category wave starts, riders have three opportunities in three separate races to record the fastest lap time, with the two best times counting towards riders overall time for this stage.  We expect the tactics to be as epic as the riding during this stage!

 

STAGE 3: 30K XC MTB
The final stage is an action packed 30km XC race with riders completing 3 laps of the 10km course. A great way to finish the stage race and the series.

 

The Back Stage Triple is part of the MoreTon Bay MTB Series and hosted at Murrenbong Scout Camp just 40 minutes north of Brisbane.

An absolute maze of tight, twisty trails. The network is concentrated near the township but other trails vear off to the northeast and longer loops can be created.

Access via: 63 Federation Drv. Here you'll find a grassy entrance to the forest. The trails slip off to the left a short way along. Some park in town near shops or you can park at the trailhead.

Greenpoint

08-12-2016 08:25am
Greenpoint is a small reserve on the boundary of Valentine and Belmont. It is very popular with walkers and runners who mostly stick to the cement paths or the foreshore walking track. It is vital that MTB riders avoid the foreshore walking tracks.
Although most of the riding here is not steep or high elevation, it will wear the average rider down quickly and finding more than about 15 - 18 kms to ride is difficult and takes good local knowledge. 
Mostly shale type soil. Good in wet weather. 
Access via: There are 3 main entry points into Greenpoint.
1. Dilkera Ave. Park near the end of Dilkera Ave and at the cul de sac ride up the very steep cement path to where it levels off. There's a fireroad to the right at the top but ride on a few more metres along the flat to the next fireroad on the right and take that. You'll where it dips down into single track.
2. Greenpoint Drive. The reserve is found right at the end of Greenpoint Drv at the cul de sac. Immediately to the right of the cul de sac there is a gravel/dirt climb which leads you to the biggest concentration of trails in Greenpoint.
3. 16 The Shores Way. At this point there is a reserve with parking, water and toilets. It's quite popular on weekends for walkers, families etc. Ride along the cement path and up the steep climb until you get to the seat up at the huge clearing. Turn left and head down the cement path and right where it flattens out after the s-bends you can turn off into trails to the right.

Holmesville

Mostly flat XC riding suitable for beginners but a nice change for intermediates as well. Possible to find around 20 kms of riding in here.
Access via: Park near the cricket field and BMX/jump track at 60 Appletree Rd. Ride up the dirt road beside the cricket field to get into the trails.
Trail

Killingworth (Killy)

08-12-2016 07:26am
A mix of raw and club groomed XC trails in various terrains. Gravity Enduro options are also available as is some more challenging trail riding as you get further away from the trail head. Local knowledge a huge advantage. It's possible to spend many hours heading up towards Sugarloaf Mt via these trails.
4WD's and Motos are common in the area so watch out from them. Can be muddy after heavy rain.
Access via: The Boulevarde/Killingworth Road. Parking suggested up near an old Hotel near the Junction of Broadway and The Boulevarde/Killingworth Rd unless you have someone watching the cars at the actual trail head. From this parking spot ride 450m north along Killingworth Rd towards Holmesville/West Wallsend and turn left on the dirt road. Ride 1 km along the dirt road (you'll pass under the M1 Freeway at about the 700m mark) and down to the tree line where you'll find the XC trails. The GE trails are over on the high side of the clearing.
