The Kalamunda Collective are happy to again present a major weekend of events on the Kalamunda Trails! Lock in the 17th and18th of September 2016 for the "The Kalamunda Classic”, four events over the one weekend that is a truly different event format for WA. Also all the money raised will go back into the Kalamunda Trails and to assist Peel Districts Mountain Bike Club.
Saturday 17th September - Main Event Kalamunda Classic
The order of runs and number of times you do them is up to you, (apart from the red run that must be done last). You have 4hrs to return back to start, or you may receive a time penalty. Each rider will get one shuttle only, so use it wisely! More info below, limited entries available at www.wagravityenduro.org/kmbc-2016-race-registration/

Event Details Kalamunda Classic
Saturday 17th September
Timeline as follows (subject to change).
Saturday 17th September Start/parking point: Mundaring Weir Hotel Registrations: 8:00am Rider Briefing: 8:45am Race Window Start: 9:00am - 9:30am Race Finish: 1:00pm - 1:30pm Course Close: 2:30pm Presentations: 3:00pm
The main event on the Saturday is not quite gravity enduro and not quite XC. It aims to be classically Kalamunda, with the emphasis on blasting the downhills and smashing the flat sections. It will be an inclusive event and aimed at a standard for all those that love to ride the Kalamunda blue trails.
It will once again consist of timed legs which are predominantly downhill and range from 3-5km in length, the longest of any “enduro” style stage race in WA. Most of these descents have not been used in previous races and will involve “reversed” trails to keep you on your toes.
The unique event format will enable you to ride at your own pace and by your own route between individual timed stages, of which you can undertake in any order. That means you’ll decide the route, and which race tactics you want to employ!
There will be only fast times per legs and a total for all legs being recorded, but entrants must return to the start village within a set time (ie 4 hrs) or risk a rolling time penalty for every minute they are over this. Professional timing will be provided by the West Australian Gravity Enduro, and we'll be starting and finishing the event at the picturesque Mundaring Weir Hotel.
There will be some awesome prizes up for grabs after the event. Major prize being a Fat Boy donated by Al's Cycle Surgery.
Once again we will be opening entries to Individual and teams
Along with the normal “open” categories (for the best of the best) we will be offering a wider range of age groups within the “sports” categories. These “sports” categories are aimed at grouping the occasional racer and weekend warriors closer together in age and will be equal for male and female.
Be warned if you’re a “gun” we reserve the right to shift you over to “open”!!!
Team category will consist of be 2 person teams where both times will be added together producing a cumulative time of both riders. However there is a twist as both riders must start each stage together (tag on within 10 secs of each other) and you must ride between stages together.
There will be male, female and mixed teams, along with a family!
