Cross Country mountain bike racing (XC, XCO, XCC) is a complete test of bike riding skills and fitness. Action-packed and fun for all, races are relatively short and consist of multiple laps loaded with features such as technical climbs, rock-gardens, singletrack trails, roots, drop-offs and jumps.

Wild Wild West Series Round 1. Kooralbyn 2021

Round 1 of Queenslands Wild Wild West Summer State Series kicked off at Kooralbyn bike park over the weekend. With a large turnout of riders, racing was fast and furious, providing exciting viewing for spectators.

The Wild West Series provides riders an opportunity to test their XC Mountain Biking skills and fitness, over a variety of terrain throughout the summer months in Queensland. With the Oceania Mountain Bike Championships scheduled to take place in Brisbane in March 2022, each Wild West event provides riders with valuable racing experience as they build towards peak fitness in March.

As is tradition with the Wild West series, riders compete in categories ranked on ability, rather than age. This presents a unique opportunity for all levels of rider and ensures that racing is close and competitive.
