The Oceania Mountain Bike Championships are happening in less than two weeks in Thredbo, NSW, Australia, from Friday March 23 through Sunday March 25. The continental championships will feature the mountain cross, cross country, and downhill disciplines and be contested by elite riders from New Zealand, Australia, New Caledonia, and other Pacific regions.
The event is run by Raw NRG, Threadbo, in conjunction with Mountain Bike Australia. For many elite riders, this is their last race in Australia before heading overseas to compete in the World Cups. Younger riders will be tackling this race as a selection event for the World Championships in Fort William Scotland.
Last year's Oceania championships were held on the World Championships courses in Rotorua, New Zealand.
Friday March 23: Mountain cross heats & finals
Saturday March 24: Downhill qualifying, Men U19 cross country
