Organizers detailed the schedule for the 2007 Oceania MTB Championships coming up in Thredbo. The Oceania Championships will be staged within the more broad Australian MTB Open. Racers will compete for nearly AUS$10K in prize money for the following classes: Elite, U23 and U19 in the cross country, Elite in the mountain cross, and Elite and U19 in the downhill. Entry is open to any appropriately licensed entrant from an Oceania county.
