Riders on the Australian Team are self funded, responsible for their own travel and racing expenses. The estimated cost to each rider is $3,600 to represent Australia at the World Championships. The aim is to raise $2,000 for each rider to subsidise their costs.
As an extra incentive the highest donation will win an Australian Team Jersey signed by the 2019 Champions.*
Australia has produced some of the best cyclists in the world, many whose passion for two wheels started on the dirt! We have so many talented riders but unfortunately mountain biking in Australia has never been a well funded sport. We have riders with the potential to race at the highest level internationally, however are restricted financially. It would be a shame to continue to have an Australian Team at the World Championships lacking one or more National Champions purely due financial difficulties.
All funds raised will be distributed equally between the six riders. If a rider chooses not to race at the World Championships the funds will then be shared between the remaining riders.
* If there are equal highest bids then one winner will be drawn at random.
