From the organizer

Organizer's website

First raced in 2016, with over 400 riders the Wombat Classic was an instant hit. The 2018 Course is going back to the roots (get it, wombat pun intended) of that first 2016 race. There are a few variations to ensure fewer bottle necks in the single track, but other than that it's going to be another great loop of the Wombat State Forest MTB trails.

Course Details

Ever been confused about what distance to enter at a Mountain Bike event?

Is 100 km too much but the other options are just side events?

The Shifty 50 Series is a mass participation Victorian Mountain Bike event series with only 50 km course options. Each event will be hosted in a different location and by different event hosts offering a variety of courses in terrain, climbing, technical sections and landscape.

50 km is a great distance, go for broke and if you blow up, shouldn’t be too far to the finish, or plug away and achieve the rewarding feeling of finishing such an event. Your training doesn’t need to be too extreme to achieve 50 km and you can try to improve on you skill and fitness through the series.

This is a series and points are being tallied. Each event will have trophies or medals for podium places and the series overall will have trophies or medals for the overall top 3 in each category
