AIR TIME: A big weekend of mountain bike action returns to Pominglarna Reserve at the end of October, just two months after the Multisport Cycling Complex hosted the 2022 AusCycling Marathon National Championships.

AusCycling Executive General Manager - Sport Kipp Kaufmann said the double-header promises a big weekend of XCO action, with approximately 130 competitors and officials expected to attend.

“The course will take riders through a magnificent network of purpose-built trails and tracks, with the individual events starting and finishing at the new Multisport Cycling Complex,” Mr Kauffman said.

“We are pleased to be working with such a great partner in Wagga Wagga City Council to deliver a high-quality event for all participants.”

Strategic Recreation Officer Peter Cook said Council received a lot of positive feedback from the 2022 AusCycling Marathon National Championships mountain bike event in August.

“We are looking forward to seeing competitors from across the country and from our local region hit the trail at another great cycling event at Pomingalarna.”
