The Gambler

The 2019 Gambler was a great success.  Dates and details for the 2020 Gambler will be announced in the new year.


The Gambler is a unique event offering a fun, challenging race with a point of difference being the introduction of a strategic element.

Riders have 4 hours to accumulate as many points as possible by completing a choice of 4 different trail loops (Grade 2 – 4) in the order of their choosing – with each loop worth different points according to their length and difficulty.  Therefore riders need to plan and strategise how they will race this event – will they do the same loop over and over, or perhaps attack the difficult loops worth more points – who knows?  Under this format it will not necessarily be the fastest rider that wins, but the most strategic rider/s of them all.  As this event caters for the avid racer as well as young teams and families, we have a trail loop that is only for Juniors riders (12 years and under).
