2015 Race Results

Pickles Hill overlooks Craigbourne Dam at Colebrook and the 15km loop of adventure trail is a great day out! There's plenty of racing options for beginners right through to experienced riders, so no matter your riding level we've got you covered. The event base and transition is beside the lake.

The Course

Each loop has around 500m of vertical climb. Around 100m of this is completed in the first 3 km as the trail ascends to the top of the main ridgeline. From the top there are spectacular views of the dam and valley. The trail then descends through a series of existing logging trails and sections of single track. The hill is largely sand stone based with sandy soil providing a well drained base for the tracks.

New in 2015!

The course has been refined a little from the 2014 event with an extra kilometre of single track trail and easing a couple of the climb pinch sections … hopefully making for a great days riding.

Solo & Pairs Racing!

30km, 45km & 60km Solo Racing categories are available, or you can tackle the pickle as Pairs (available for 30km & 60km). Male, Female, and Junior individual age classes are available and we're giving away spot prizes in each class too!

Getting There.

The event is being held on the privately owned Mt Bain farm. It is approximately 10km east of Colebrook off the Tunnack Road. Directional signage will be up on the day.


Entry cost is $45 for MTBA members ($25 for juniors). For non-members, a MTBA day licence can be purchased on raceday for $20. MTBA coverage is important for the event as it provides insurance coverage. Non-members can take advantage of a current free membership trial offer from MTBA. Details of this offer are outlined on the MTBA web site.
