Race Course

The Chainless Champs will feature the ideal race course for this style of event.

Beginning at the start of Centre Link, riders will drop into the middle slopes of the Kosciuszko Flow Trail, where you will have to think about tactics to ensure you can hold speed on the long traversing sections and use the rollers and jumps to your advantage.

This final race course will test riders strength, stamina and bike handling skills!
