The Gambler 2019
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 in the order of their choosing – with each loop worth different points according to their length and difficulty (Grade 2 – 4 trails). 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 first – who knows? Under this format it will not necessarily be the fastest rider that wins, but the most strategic rider/s of them all. This event caters for the avid racer as well as teams or families out to have a bit of fun. We have a dedicated loop for junior riders only (12 years and under). Registration from 9:00am. Racing: 10am – 2pm.
