I want to help out.  Can I volunteer? Can I offer a place to stay for other like-minded CX riders from interstate?

YES, email us (webmaster@mwmwtb.com) back. Course set-up begins at 7:30 am.

Where to Stay?

Terrey Hills is about 20km out of Manly, 25km from the Sydney CBD & 40km from Sydney Airport.

If you want to stay closer there are a few options

What’s the course like?

Fun!  If you want a bit more idea Mick Hernan & his son Adam have put together videos of some of the races, and we’ve also had Dave Bateman taking some great photos.  An aerial perspective from a race in March.

Last years SBS Cycling Central Coverage

For an out-of-towners perspective, Dirty Deeds CX regulars Paddy & Dianne came up for some sneaky training last year, survived and are still keen to comeback for more.

With all that said we’ve got some special Nationals only sections for even more fun and to keep you guessing.
