EVENT: SINGAPORE MOUNTAIN BIKE

CARNIVAL & THE OCBC NATIONAL

MOUNTAIN BIKE CHAMPIONSHIP 2015

 

 

It's here again! The 9th edition of the Singapore Mountain Bike Carnival will be held on 6 September 2015 at Lorong Asrama. It's time to put your training for the past one year into good use. Love mountain biking? Then this is one event you should not miss. Read on for the details! 

 

 

GET READY FOR THE 9TH EDITION!

The 9th edition of the Singapore Mountain Bike Carnival is actually 2 events in 1! On the same day, the venue will also be hosting the OCBC Singapore National Mountain Bike Championship 2015. This year saw some changes to the race category and format. Instead of the old 8-hour mountain bike marathon, it is now a 6-hour race. There are also 2 new events this year - the National Cross Country Olympic (XCO) Championship and National Downhill Championship races. This year also see the re-introduction of the Youth 1 lapper race. On top of the race events, expect to see more bikes and gears demos at the carnival. In our opinion, this will be a big, not-to-be-missed event with lots to offer!

With so much going on, one is forgiven for getting a little disoriented. We have the details in bite-size here.

Date: 6th Sept 2015, Sunday (6AM – 5PM)

RACE COURSE

Cross Country Olympic (XCO) and Marathon Course

 

The course (marked by the red line) are for the Cross Country Olympic (XCO) and the Marathon Race. At press time, there are 3 single track zones in addition to the infamous hill 265 and Foxhole Run section. That covers about 50% of the race course. The organizer would be looking to fine-tune the race course and add more single track sections so as to enhance the racing experience where possible - do expect some slight tweaking to the race course from now till race day.
