Live Results for WEMBO New Zealand 2016

 

The locations for WEMBO World Championships have been selected as iconic 24 hour race locations around the world. The locations include opportunities for non-racing experiences for both the riders and supporters.   This will make your entry in the WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships a truly memorable event for you, your helpers and family.   Many international riders take the opportunity to turn these events into a holiday after the race and the veneues we have selected are perfect for that.

WEMBO Continental Championship Venues

To provide additional Solo 24 Hour opportunities for riders, the WEMBO members and affiliates have recently agreed to host Continental Championships.   These have been held for Europe and the Oceania Region.

Courses

The course will be set to provide a true mountain-biking experience for the riders, with a lap length suitable for the number of riders entered in the race. The organisers will aim for an average rider track spacing of not less than 35 metres, ideally 45, so there will be plenty of space for overtaking and no points where riders can be blocked.

For events with very large numbers of entrants, the Race Organisers reserve the right to place the Elite riders on a separate course to the Age-Group and Single Speed categories.

Some events may decide to include a teams category in the event. If this is done, then the teams will race on a separate course to the Solo riders.  So, the Solo riders will always have their own course, although a common start/finish area may be used.

The course for each WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships will be made public 2 weeks before the race on the WEMBO website, the Event website and in international forums.
