Schools X Country

The Inaugural Schools X Country at Maramarua Forest is a happening thing with riders registered from far afield looking forward to this exciting race.


Friday 12th April 2019

Power Adventures is proud to be bringing this race to the Schools and the history of Power Adventures running off road events including the popular 2 Man X C Sedries, the Grand National X Country Serioes and the annual 6 Hr X Country at National level, give them credibility to run this Schools XC race.

 

This event hais sanctioned by Sport Waikato as an official Schools Event approving time off on Friday for the Race. Power Adventures is an aproved and audited events company approved by Worksafe NZ. Safety is paramount.

 

The race is taylorer to the Schools Format with a very safe and ridable course of around 20 minutes per lap which means for the 90 minute race, fast rider will be completing 5 laps and average riders with the average being 4 laps.

 

Unique to Power Adventures, we use Rushworth computer timing sending the riders off at around 6 at a time with 30 - 40 second intervals. This allowes for riders to spread out around the course eliminating that first corner controntation and usually a big mess. Because it is computer times, each rider gets their full 90 minutes riding no matter where they start so riders are racing agains time and those of their starting grid.  So every rider gets the same opportunity to win overall no matter where on the track they finish.  This will be fully explained at briefing.

 

Trophies to 3rd (possibly more depending on entries) will be awarded at the track.
