2014-2015 Australian MTB National Series

Subaru Australian Mountain Bike Series Announced for the Next Two Years!

Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) is thrilled to announce the details of the Subaru Australian Mountain Bike Series for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.

The Subaru Australian Mountain Bike Series is the pinnacle series for the sport in Australia.

Each year athletes from throughout Australia compete for the title of National Series Champion, prizes and to accrue UCI points toward international representation.

Following on from a highly successful 2014 Series, MTBA will deliver a truly National series in 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.

The competition for both seasons has been expanded both in the number of rounds and geographically to encompass five Australian states / territories in 2014-15 and six in the following year.

The series forms a key stepping-stone for competitive riders to international competition, with Australia’s Mountain Biking bronze medallists in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Dan McConnell and Bec Henderson, being among the many regular Elite competitors.

Racing gets underway for this year on 12-14th December, 2014 with Downhill, Cross Country and Eliminator action taking place in the You Yangs Regional Park in Victoria.

In an exciting partnership, the opening round of the series for Downhill riders will also be the opening round of the highly-successful Victorian State Downhill Series, with riders accruing points and prizes in both series for a single entry fee.

The series will continue with rounds in Western Australia, New South Wales, and the ACT, and then finish on a high note with the final round being held in conjunction with the 2015 Oceania Mountain Bike Championships in Toowoomba, QLD.

“The growth of the Subaru Australian Mountain Bike Series for 2014-15 and 2015-16 reflects the thriving nature of mountain biking across Australia” expressed Shane Coppin, Executive Officer of MTBA.

“We have worked hard with partner clubs and organisations to ensure that the series expands geographically, with both seasons stretching across Australia and visiting both Western Australia and Queensland for the first time in a number of years.

“Keeping with this aim of taking National events to a variety of exciting mountain bike destinations, we have plans for XCM events in South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

“It is also important that we recognise the importance of our clubs who are valuable partners in delivery of our national events”.

Dates, venues and discipline information for the Subaru Australian Mountain Bike Series for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 are below.
