WELCOME

Auckland MTB Club and FourForty Mountain Bike Park welcomes all North Island School
students and supporters to the 2021 SKODA North Island School Mountain Bike
Championships. We anticipate a great level of racing as well as an environment that
encourages young riders to give it a go and develop their riding skills.

Auckland Mountain Bike Club is proud to thank FourForty and the Auckland Schools
Mountain Biking Community for offering to host the 2021 event and for co-ordinating four
events across two venues. Many thanks also to Auckland Grammar School for co-ordinating
all the volunteers at Hunua, an enormous task made easy by their expertise.

To Auckland Regional Council, and in particular the Parks Team, thanks for allowing the
students the unique opportunity to race in a spectacular venue on a purpose-built course.

The venues hosting the racing need your help in keeping them clean, tidy and disease free.
In particular, the Hunua Ranges needs your vigilance in keeping out KAURI DIEBACK. Please
use all the bike and foot wash facilities provided – IT IS NECESSARY and only takes a few
moments.

SCHOOL TENTS

At the Hunua Ranges there will be sites available for schools to set up tents. To better
manage the space allocation, schools can book one of 10 premium tent sites in advance
($150 each) and so prevent any need to rush. Simply email damianmcooper@gmail.com
with your request BEFORE MARCH 1st, when applications close. These sites will be allocated
on a first in first served basis in a dedicated area in the Event Village and schools will be
invoiced directly. Please ensure that you bring appropriate weights or pegs to keep your
tent down. Schools are also responsible for removing any waste at the end of each day.
Please help us in supporting our host venues and respect their property.

All schools will be able to set up sites from 10am on Saturday March 20th at Hunua for XCO &
XCR. Access to the Hunua Ranges is via a locked gate that will be guarded overnight on
Saturday 20th March. The organisers take no responsibility for any equipment left overnight.
If dropping off equipment in the morning, it will need to be an early start as there will be NO
ACCESS TO PARKING AREAS P1, P2, P3 or P4 after 8am on race day. Cars will not be
permitted to move around the race village area after 8am until notice is given by the Event
Organiser.

At Fourforty there will be sites available for schools to set up tents on a first in first served
basis in a dedicated area in the 440 MTB Park event base adjacent to the carpark. Tents can

removing any waste at the end of each day. Please help us in supporting our host venues
and respect their property.

PARKING

The Hunua Ranges (XCO & XCR) will be providing off road parking very close to the race
course. Please make sure your vehicle is suitable. This also means that you will need to be
vigilant in following the instructions you are given by the volunteers as to how and where to
position your vehicle. Allow extra time for your journey to avoid rushing. A parking map is
included on page 12 or use GPS to navigate to 37°06'28"S 175°09'49"E

Parking at Fourforty is provided as two large gravel carparks and a nearby paddock if
needed. Please arrive early and follow all parking signs and staff instructions. Carpooling is

2021 EVENT MANUAL Presented by - Cross Country & Relay - Cycling New Zealand ...
The Hunua Ranges are a high fire risk area and so it is not just for your health
that we expect this compliance, but for the safety of everyone.

SPORTSMANSHIP

Sportsmanship is important at any level of mountain biking. We highly encourage you to
watch out for your fellow riders, whether they be your team-mates or not. Remember, if a
faster rider, approaching from behind, calls out ‘rider on your right’ or simply ‘rider’ please
allow them to pass on your right at the next possible spot that you deem is safe for yourself,
and the fellow rider to pass.

Riders overtaking must do so safely and not put other riders in danger.

Please pass this onto your students, and if we hear of any foul play the competitor could
face being disqualified.

FOOD AND WATER

Limited water is available on-site. Please ensure students have sufficient fluid and nutrition
for the duration of the event. There will be limited food outlets on the race sites so please
bring enough for the day. Auckland Grammar School will be running a cash BBQ if park fire
rules allow.

R-Line, one of our event sponsors will be providing electrolyte drinks at Hunua.

WITHDRAWING FROM THE EVENT

Please reiterate to your students that if for some reason they cannot finish the event they
must tell a race official and return their race timing tag (if applicable).

CONTINGENCY PLAN

The event recognises that there is the potential for circumstances outside of their control
occurring that could result in the published event format and/or distance being adjusted in
the interest of participant and/or officials’ safety. If inclement conditions exist, all decisions
regarding the implementation of the contingency plan will be made by the Race Organisers
at the earliest possible time.

RESULTS

CANCELLATION OF THE EVENT

The organisers reserve the right to cancel one or more of the events in the case of adverse
weather conditions or other reasons including Covid-19 Alert Level Status. Any contingency
plans will be announced via Facebook and the website. Please note that the decision to
issue refunds is solely that of the Organising Committee (AMBC for XCO and XCR and

                                                                                          10
COVID-19
At the time of publication, host region, Auckland and the rest of New Zealand are currently
in Alert Level 1. We are monitoring this daily and will provide further updates if there are
any changes that may impact the event including but not limited to a change in Alert Level
status.

If you test positive for Covid-19 after the Event please contact the Event Manager
immediately.

Golden Rules for Covid Alert Level 1

Please ensure that you and your supporters use the contact tracing available at the event
and scan the event QR code.

              If you’re sick, stay home. Please do not turn up at the event.
              If you have cold or flu symptoms call your doctor or Healthline and make sure
               you get tested.
              Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands.
              Sneeze and cough into your elbow, and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.
              If you are told by health authorities to self-isolate you must do so
               immediately.
              If you’re concerned about your wellbeing or have underlying health
               conditions, work with your GP to understand how best to stay healthy.
              Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing
               if needed. Use the NZ COVID Tracer app as a handy way of doing this.
              It is still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while
               out and about. This will help to minimize the spread of Covid-19 if community
               transmission returns.
              Continuing good habits with face coverings will keep you and others safe,
               even at Alert Level 1 when it’s no longer compulsory.
              People will have had different experiences over the last couple of months.
               Whatever you’re feeling — it’s okay. Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself.

                                                                                            11

                         help of a teammate, team mechanic or neutral technical
                         assistance. In addition to technical assistance in feed zones,
                         technical assistance is permitted outside these zones only
                         between riders who are members of the same school.

Lap Guidelines:          Provisional laps and waves are on the next page. Final wave
                         groups and lap numbers will be determined by the Chief
                         Commissaire after entries close. Once the winning rider for an
                         Age Group has finished, riders in that Age Group will not be able
                         to commence any new laps of the course.

                                                                                         16

Key Information:         Each rider secures a clear plastic race plate holder to the front
                         of their bike so that the race number is clearly visible.

                         Rider 1 starts the race with their team race number inside their
                         holder. This must stay in the plastic holder until the rider
                         returns to the Transition Area (DO NOT ride carrying the race
                         number)

                         Riders must dismount before entering the Transition Area, then
                         push their bike (running or walking) to their awaiting team
                         mate.

                         Once inside the Transition Area, at the conclusion of each lap,
                         riders must hand (NOT THROW) their race number to the next
                         rider in their team who must then put it inside their plastic
                         number plate holder (number facing forward and the right way
                         up) BEFORE leaving the Transition Area.

                         Riders must ride single laps in their designated order (Rider 1
                         hands to Rider 2 who hands to Rider 3, who hands to Rider 1,
                         etc) and may not miss a rider from their turn. Failure to do so
                         will result in disqualification.

                                                                                           19
