With less than one month to go until the 2008 Australian MTB Championships, registration is open and organizers announced a few changes. The Championships are scheduled for January 24-28 in Canberra.
Organizers added more downhill practice time on Friday for Groups C and B, changed the U19 women's cross country race to Sunday following the elite women's race and moved the U15 men's race to an earlier start time Saturday. The changes should allow more equitable practice sessions for Group B & C downhillers. Saturday's women's race will use a truncated course as a group while all other start groups will used the full course.
