Race 1 - January 25: Club Team Relay

CORC ' Geese claim opening event

Four teams contested the Club Team Relay which was based on a similar model used at the UCI World Mountain Bike Championships. Teams included one rider each of an elite/expert/sport man, a veteran/master/supermaster man, a woman and an U19/U17 man. Each rider raced one lap of the cross country course.

The Canberra Off Road Cyclists (The CORC 'Geese: Graeme Allbon, Brendan Johnston, Rebecca Henderson and Ben Henderson) collected the first win of the Australian National Mountain Bike Championships. Canberra also picked up a second place with its Giants team (Jason Chalker, Michael Baker, Rosemary Barnes and Andrew Blair). The Manly Warringah Cycling Club (Aiden Lefmann, Zoe King, Hugh Suttor, Warren Burgess) came in a close third.
