Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) finalized its national series for 2007-2008 which will see several venues, including two new ones, holding events from October 2007 to February 2008.
October 20: MTNX #1 and #2 at Sydney Olympic park
November 3-4: XCO #1, DH #2 Eagle Park in Adelaide (new venue)
November 24-25: XCO #2, DH #2, MTNX #3 Gold Coast (Illanbah) (new venue)
December 15-16: XCO #3, DH #3, MTNX #4 in Threadbo
January 12-13: MTNX #5 and #6 at Blackhill, near Newcastle
February 2-3: XCO #4 and DH #4 at Mount Beauty's Big Hill mountain bike park
Also new for this year is a short track series (XCC) being held at all venues which are holding a cross country event. The short track races will happen one day after each cross country event.
The 2008 Australian mountain bike championships happen January 23-27, the weekend before the final round of the series. They will likely draw more attention than usual because the Canberra venue will also be the site of the 2009 World mountain bike championships.
