The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

5 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Ride Database Entry: 
Kinross State Forest
Meeting Point: 

The city of Orange is around 4 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra. Kinross State Forest is situated on the northeast edge of town, a 10 minute drive or 20 minute ride from the Orange town centre.

Meet at the Bulgas Road carpark, Western edge of the forest.

Drive out from Orange on the Ophir Rd, before you reach the rubbish tip, turn right onto Bulgas Rd. Follow this about 2km to the forest (the road turns to gravel).

Note that the 'Directions there' google maps link below may not give the best route/destination. It seems that google maps ignores Bulgas Rd when selecting a route and gives the next closest spot. The 'Meeting point' link should be correct.

Event Cancelled
News just in, this morning after considerable deliberation and consultation amongst the large group that involves clubs, organisers, sponsors, councils , MTBA and other agencies we have decided to cancel this weekends race. Put simply, its too hot. We want the Evocities to deliver quality events, fun, and for riders to enjoy their weekends away; with a predicted 36' high temperature for Sunday we cant see how this is possible to achieve. This being the last race of the series and having already being postponed, now cancelled there will be further discussion amongst the stakeholders as to how the points and associated prizes will be distributed.

Thank you for understanding and your support through the last two years.

Date - Cancelled 2017 Feb 5th (postponed from Nov 27th)

When - Race start at 09:00, duration 5hrs.

Details - Now in its fifth year! The Ninja was the pioneer for big regional events and continues to offer a cracking time for all.

New for 2016 is Gravity, yes, that's right gravity. Inside the standard lap, riders will have two opportunities to exert their prowess on predominantly downhill sections. Its not super techy, its just for fun, if you always thought those skinny XC girls and boys couldn't handle themselves against your talent on the downhills then turn up, roll around the course until the gravity section and give it plenty. The new gravity class will be decided by cumulative time for the two sections. We think its awesome, you don't need to be a XC whippet to get some glory.

Expect another cracking Ninja loop, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, but a lot of fun on the descents.

Also new for 2016 and in conjunction with the Evocities we will have teams of three and we have stretched the duration to 5hrs (more fun!).

Sorry if this comes across pretty abrupt, but I'm quite tired of seeing references to males only. Is this event for females too? If so, can you please remove the reference to boys.
It's hard enough being a female in this sport, when guys don't let you pass because they think you'll be slower than them on the descent... Comments like these only encourages that behaviour.

Girls are of course welcome. Thanks for pointing that out elise.

Hey is there an age restriction on this event? Can't find a mention of one but can't register either as there is no category is the message that comes up.

Dismally poor.

Cement need to be swallowed.
