We understand that having to cancel the 2020 event is far from ideal for everyone involved and it is the first time in 18 years of running over 100 events that we have had to enact the “acts of God, natural disasters, terrorism or other reasons” clause. The simple reality is cancelling a week out has come with devastating financial consequences for our small company as the majority of the 2020 fees have already been spent on the event. However, we are still committed to hosting this world-class event in 2021 and everything is now ready to deliver to you an unrivalled mountain bike experience. We appreciate your support in this tough time.
The event organisers have a public liability insurance policy to the value of 20 million dollars. This is a compulsory insurance policy in Australia for events that are organised on, or cross through, any form of government land/public place.
This, however, is not personal accident insurance for you! It is strongly recommended you have your own personal accident insurance.
It is a condition of entry that you must have ambulance cover. Unless you’re from Tasmania or Queensland, you’ll need to take this out (or ensure it is part of your private health cover). Here are some details.
Unlike many mountain bike events, is NOT compulsory to also purchase a Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) Day Licence. You may choose to buy one of these if you choose and can do so here. This race is not directly affiliated with MTBA. You may already have suitable coverage through your private health insurance or superannuation.
