Wild Wild West Series Round 4. Walloon 2022
The 2022 Queensland Mountain Bike Season Kicks off in style at Walloon
Queenslands 2022 XCO mountain bike season was due to begin at Samford, unfortunately, heavy rainfall (thanks to Ex Cyclone Seth), ensured that the track in Samford could not be prepared in time, placing the event in jeopardy. Step up Walloon!!! One of the regular XCO crowd pleasers, Walloon prepared an excellent racing course with an extremely short turn-around. Numbers have been growing to XCO races of late and it was important to provide a quality race prior to the Gold Level National Cup event due to take place at Nerang on the 23rd of January (Click here for details).
An impressive turnout of 110 competitors took to the start at Walloon, a great result considering the emerging SEQ Covid situation and heavy rainfall that was experienced in the week prior.
Although Walloon is not open to the public for riding between events, you can ride at the facility as part of coaching setup ‘JR’s Gym and Bike’ visit their website for contact information.
