XC National Champs 2016

This weekend seems like it's going to be a mountain bike weekend.  Following the downhill race  on Saturday, the XC athletes will take it to Mgarr to compete for the national championship title.  Although the original race location has been changed, the Mgarr trail makes for a great track with technical descents and technical climbs making it an awesome ride. 

Date  -  16.10.16

Venue  -  Mgarr

Time  -  08.00hrs - 11.00hrs

TRACK WALK - The race start is located in the Lippija area overlooking Gnejna and Ghajn Tuffieha bay with great views all round.  It sets off with a loop around a technical rock single track and heads towards the Lippija downhill.  The trail goes on to a technical climb over some loose and sharp rocks up to the Lippija table top where the riders will ride towards a climb alongside the cliff edge which will take them back to the start/finish.

TRACK WALK The trail starts off at the entrance to the barracks of Fort Campbell heading down the side in the direction towards Mistra Bay.  At the bottom of the descent the track heads left for a cliff-side ride over a rock downhill section all the way down towards the sea.  This section will challenge the riders skills over technical terrain at high speeds.  The next section takes the riders through trekking trails around the bottom of Selmun, often used by 4x4 enthusiasts.  The track finishes off with a climb towards the start/finish line over the clay hills with loose rock spread all over.  Rider stamina will definitely be tested here.  The number of laps will depend on the rider category.
