How does it work?
A rider can enter each event as an individual or as part of his or her school's MTB team.
Each rider will receive points based on the points log - the aim is for the school to accumulate as many points as possible but more importantly to introduce more kids to bikes.
More information about this can be found on the website.
The Spur Schools MTB League follows a Cross Country format where riders will complete laps based on a time limit. The distance will vary slightly from track to track and follow the suggested guidelines:
