WA XCM State Series…

The event membership in the alliance is limited to those mountain bike events that offer a minimum distance of 50 kilometres (km), which means our 70km and 100km races are included. 14-17 year olds will accrue points in the Junior Shredder category - a new edition to the points rules.

The WA XCM State Series utilises the following points categories: 

  • Open

  • Masters 40-49
