Each year Mountain Bike Australia summons the best mountain bikers of Australia for the national mountain bike season which kicks off in Sydney. The National Four Cross Rounds 1 & 2 return to Sydney Olympic Park’s “Monster track” on the “Spring Cycling Festival”-weekend of 18 & 19 October 2008, this year sponsored by Red Ass Mexican Food.
“We are looking forward to seeing our Mexican meals at the first two rounds of the 4X Nationals this year. Such a hardcore sport calls for some hearty food,” says owner of the Sydney-based food company racer Albert Bacci. Bacci is one of the passionate master’s four cross riders. Red Ass Mexican Meals will be available from the catering tent during the two day event.
“The venues for the Australian MTB Series again have been chosen as being high-profile in exciting locations and hosted by very capable event promoters, and as usual the courses have been selected to be fun, achievable and interesting”, says Tony Scott, Executive Officer of MTBA.
The Monster track was built for the Olympic Games in Sydney and is one of the best and most popular tracks in Australia. It has recently undergone maintenance and upgrading and is in better condition than ever! Spectators will have excellent views of the entire track from any point of the event centre, Organisers expect more than 100 riders each day.
