The Gambler

The 2019 Gambler was a great success.  The 2020 Gambler has a new date of Sunday 13th December.

Entries are now open – click on the box below (we would appreciate riders signing up as early as possible to help us with our planning and organisation of this event as it  relies heavily on a large number of volunteers)

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).
