Xtreme AM & PM Qualifying

8:30am - AM Riders (Subject to change)

10:30am - PM Riders (Subject to change)

Qualifying will begin at the scoring section (near the pits). Riders need to be there ready 10 minutes before start time.

Qualifying will kick off with a fast speed course on approx a 5-mile loop which will end in the arena doing an approx 1-mile hard extreme loop. The 1st lap will be a practice starting in number order (you will only ride the speed section in practice as you will be able to walk the Extreme section before the qualifying). approx 5 second intervals between each rider. The 2nd lap will be a timed run starting again in number order and the 3rd lap will again be timed but will again be timed but will be in time order from the 2nd lap.  The 2nd & 3rd lap will be calculated, giving you your position for the start line on Sunday.

-          There will be a top 10 shoot out after the qualifying has finished (PM ONLY).

-          Those riders who are not competing in the qualifying will be positioned at the back of the start line on race day.


The above format applies for both AM & PM riders. (Anyone taking more than 20 minutes to complete the course will automatically get a time penalty of 20 minutes, this is to help us keep the flow of the event. 

Valleys Lite

2:00pm - This 2hr race will start Saturday afternoon, the course is big bike friendly. Do as many laps as you can on our approx 6-8 mile course.


Main races kick off on Sunday Morning at 9am and Sunday Afternoon at 12 noon with riders leaving in rows of 15 on the gruelling 10-mile lap.

Choose between the AM 2hr race and the PM 3hr race. The Am race is an easier version which consists of 2 laps or 2hrs "whatever one you achieve first" or chose the PM race which is 3 laps or 3hrs, again "whatever one you achieve first". The 3rd lap on the PM race has NO HELP ZONES.

Start line positions:

-          The top 10 riders from the shootout will be positioned on the first row and will be put in position order from the shootout results.

-          There will be approx 25 on a row so the next 15 riders out of the top 25 will be positioned next to the top 10 riders on a first come first serve.

-          The next few rows of 25 will be positioned on a first come first serve basis, you will be told what row to position yourself on.  (You will be able to view your position on the live timing, we will post this via our Facebook page).

The track has been designed to provide a challenging and demanding course for a competent level of riders, while spectators will be able to get up close and personal with the riders while helping them find the best lines.
