The Australian v New Zealand MTBO Challenge will take place in conjunction with the Australian MTBO Championships from October 25-27 in Maryborough, Victoria.
New Zealand, as the visiting team, determined that the challenge would be contested over the following 8 classes: W21; W40; W60; M21; M40; M50; M60; M70.
The challenge will be contested in all 4 Australian Championship competitions – the sprint, middle, long and mass start events.
The scoring system works as follows:
- The times of the two fastest of the three team riders in each contested class are added to give the team time for the stage.
- The nation with the lower team time is the winner of the class for that stage.
- The nation with the most class wins over the four events triumphs.
