Date - 2017 Feb 5th (postponed from Nov 27th)

When - Race start at 09:00, duration 5hrs.

Details - Now in its fifth year! The Ninja was the pioneer for big regional events and continues to offer a cracking time for all.

New for 2016 is Gravity, yes, that's right gravity. Inside the standard lap, riders will have two opportunities to exert their prowess on predominantly downhill sections. Its not super techy, its just for fun, if you always thought those skinny XC boys couldn't handle themselves against your talent on the downhills then turn up, roll around the course until the gravity section and give it plenty. The new gravity class will be decided by cumulative time for the two sections. We think its awesome, you don't need to be a XC whippet to get some glory.

Expect another cracking Ninja loop, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, but a lot of fun on the descents.

Also new for 2016 and in conjunction with the Evocities we will have teams of three and we have stretched the duration to 5hrs (more fun!).

***Cancelled*** - see comments

This is a Cross Country MTB race on a 25km loop in Back Yamma State Forest. Formats for Beginners and Juniors (25km), Average Punters (50km, 2-3hrs) and Masochists (100km, 4-6hrs). The loop will be similar to the former Back Yamma Big Foot first lap. This is a club based event, so compared to the Big Foot, there won't be very much bling.
There are plenty of great camp sites at Back Yamma so feel free to camp the night before.
Toilets will be provided and a BBQ for lunch on Sunday but you should plan to bring all your own stuff.
