Start the New Year with a new fitness challenge by taking on the 2010 X Scenic MTB Race! The perfect reason to stay fit this summer. New Year’s resolutions often fly out of the window before January has even had a chance to get started. So set yourself a goal worth sticking to, keep fit and enter the X Scenic.

The X Scenic is on January 31st, so you'll need to get on the bike over the Festive Season and get yourself into shape and get to Timaru for one of the best single-track MTB races in the region. With a redesigned course and three races to suit all levels of rider, this is the place to put your mountain biking skills to the test or develop them to the next level. The X Scenic is a challenging course with less climbing than other events but making up for that with a variety of single track and technical sections, that make you work hard.

The event takes place entirely within Timaru's Centennial Park. If you rode the Timaru 12 Hour, it's in the same park but mostly uses different trails with more single track. Based on feedback from last year, we have made some course changes making it easier to navigate, with more passing options and if you're not technically inclined - more chicken routes. It's now a shorter 9km circuit that links up well established MTB trails developed over the last few years with a variety of short, sharp single track challenges. It is an undulating, flowing course that makes you work but offers great rewards for effort. All races start at 11am making it easy to get to Timaru from Christchurch, Dunedin or Central.

Three races:
Recreational race - one lap (9k)
Sport race - two laps (18k)
Experts - three laps (27k)
