The renowned Baco Trails in Castlemaine have been included again in the Shifty Fifty series calendar for 2023. We look forward to bringing you Roll’d Gold along with our co-hosts Bendigo Mountain Bike Club.
Date: Sunday 4 June 2023
Location: Walmer Forest Reserve, Castlemaine
Rego Open time: 8:30 am
Start Time: 10 am to 10:20 am – All 50km classes and all short course classes
The Shifty Fifty Series is a very specific set of Mountain Bike races in Victoria aimed at the sweet spot of mountain biking. With a 50kms option and a short course option of 25km.
Again we will showcase some of the fast, flowy and fun riding around Castlemaine. There’s a bunch of memorable singletrack that will take you through box-ironbark woodland areas of historic gold mining activity. This route features undulating terrain with generally flowy trails on smooth, sometimes loose, dirt surfaces. As to be expected in central Victoria there are some rocky sections and steeper climbs and descents.
Oh and don’t forget eMTBs are always welcome at all rounds of the Shifty Fifty.
You can either start with the fastest at 10am riders or wait for some space and start with your mates with no pressure – you just have to roll out before 10:20 am.
This event is being delivered by Castlemaine Rocky Riders and Bendigo MTB Club.
