Junior Development


MTBA National Series and National Championship races form a fundamental part of MTBA’s junior development programs for riders ranging from intermediate through to elite level. They are also an integral part of the selection process for development squads and junior world championship teams. MTBA recognises that attending some or all of the series can be a significant time and financial burden on families.

In response MTBA has developed a program that gives the opportunity for U17, U19 and U23 riders to attend National Series and National Championship races without requiring parent/guardian accompaniment and under the supervision of experienced and accredited coaches and staff. Athletes are met at the destination airport and are under the care of MTBA staff until they are on their returning flight at the end of the camp.

The National Junior Travel Program for the 2017-2018 XCO and DHI National Season is open now. For full details please download the information sheet HERE.

Registrations are open now and can be accessed via the following links. Note registrations close strictly 4 weeks prior to each event to allow for logistics planning and minimum numbers are required to implement the program. Please register as early as possible.
