Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) are pleased to announce the Fat Tyre National Championship will be held at Cable Beach, Broome Western Australia on the 11th May 2018.
It’s the first time a fat tyre championship has been held in Australia.
The championships will be a prologue stage to The Gibb Challenge – a five day socially competitive team relay cycling event tracing the Gibb River Road from Derby to El Questro raising community awareness and funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Event promoter Simon Rimmer said it will be an amazing experience for riders.
“Cycling athletes from across Australia competing for the coveted National Champion’s Jersey on the white sands of Broome’s Cable Beach with an Indian Ocean sunset and camel tours as a backdrop.”
“There will be approximately 400 participants arriving in Broome in preparation for their life defining Kimberley adventure for the Gibb Challenge – so we thought to give them a little race action to set the hearts beating with the fat tyre race”.
The race is a multi-lap criterium of 40 minutes for men, 30 minutes for women and 20 minutes for juniors, with riders negotiating natural and improvised obstacles along the stretch of sand on Cable Beach.
