Riders will continue to lap the course for 12hr. The rider/team with the most number of laps wins. If rider/teams have the same number of laps, then whoever finished those laps in the quickest time wins. Teams ride in a relay fashion with only 1 rider from a team on the course at any one time. You can stop riding at any time and have a break. Teams can swap with team mates whenever they like and a physical touch must occur between riders (e.g. hi five), however interchange must occur in the transition zone, after the timing tent to receive a valid lap time.

  • Friendly event atmosphere
  • Accessible location located within 1hr 30mins from Gold Coast and Brisbane
  • 1-course options available at each race
  • Fantastic door prizes at each event

Attaching Your Bike Number Plate: 

Attach your bike number to the front of your bike using at least 3 ties, securely fastening in an upright position ensuring that can be easily seen from the front. Your Number should be in front of the brake cables and not wrapped around any part of the bike. The number cannot be altered, obscured, cut or de-faced. If the race number is not attached correctly there is a possibility that the time keepers will not read your number. It is your responsibility to ensure it is fitted correctly.

Racing Bikes and Equipment

Your bike must conform to the UCI general rules for mountain bike racing. Electric bikes or power assisted bikes are not allowed.


International Standards approved bicycle helmets must be worn at all times while riding a bike during competition and practice. The following helmets are accepted: AS/NZ 2063, ANSI Z90.4, SNELL B or N Series, ASTM F-1447, CAN/CSA-D113.2-M, US CPSC standard for bicycle helmets, European CEN standard EN1078. Failure to meet this requirement may result in immediate disqualification from the event. Damaged helmets must be replaced. Skate style helmets are not approved for this race. The mounting bracket for a helmet-mounted camera must not compromise the structure of the helmet. For example, if can be attached by straps, Velcro or glue – but it cannot be bolted to the helmet. It is up to you as a rider to follow QLD bike laws.

Right-of-Way, Passing and Being Passed

A rider walking their bike must give way to a rider who is riding if you are walking your bike; make sure you leave plenty of open tracks for the other riders. The rider being overtaken has right-of-way (unless they are walking their bike) until the overtaking rider is past and clear by one bike length.

If you want to pass the rider in front on single track, call out “TRACK”. When the rider in front feels it is safe to pass, they will pull over to one side and call “PASS”. They may also call out “ON MY LEFT / ON MY RIGHT”. Let the rider in front know what you doing by calling “ON YOUR LEFT / ON YOUR RIGHT”.

If there will be more than one rider passing, let the rider in front know that as you pass them by calling, for example “TWO MORE COMING THROUGH”. If you do not make this call, the rider in front will assume you have decided not to pass and will return to the center of the track.

The rider in front is under no obligation to let you pass, but slow riders and lapped riders should not delay faster riders unless it is unsafe to let them pass.

Remember, if you are the overtaking rider, the conditions you feel are safe may not be considered safe by the rider you want to overtake. They may be less experienced than you, or they may have seen something on the track that you have not. Overtaking is not allowed on bridges or constructed ramps.

Smoke Free Environmental Act 2000 Law

All On the Edge Events are smoke free. Spectator areas at sports grounds or other recreational areas used for organized sporting events it is not against the law in QLD to smoke. Categories and Rider Age: A rider’s age is calculated on the day of racing for age grouping & the term General Classification means all riders.

Pausing or Abandoning the Race

The race may be paused or abandoned due to extreme weather, emergencies or any other reason decided by the organizer. If the race is paused, all riders must complete the lap they are on and their time and laps will be recorded. If the race is then abandoned, that will determine the placings. If the race is resumed at a later time, then the riders will be started on their lap in a staggered start method, so that each rider has the same time off the bike due to the pause and there is no unfair advantage gained. There will be no refunds or other considerations if the race is paused or abandoned.

Carrying Items during the Race

Ipod or other musical playing devices are not permitted for riders while on course. Riders are permitted to carry mobile phones or 2-way radios on course, but they must not use earpieces, and the riders must stop and pull off the course when they use using them. Riders are not allowed to wear helmet cameras, fitted either to their helmet, body or bike, in practice and during the race. The mounting bracket for a helmet-mounted camera must not compromise the structure of the helmet. For example, it can be attached by straps, Velcro or glue – but it cannot be bolted to the helmet.


Toilets will be provided.

    I loved the course. I'm excited for more single track coming. Such a great course with enough to keep me excited especially the great down back to the put area.
