Important notes:
Anyone interesting in competing regularly is urged to get a full membership as after just 5 races the membership fee is cheaper than buying ‘race day licenses’.
See the full list of benefits on the MTBA website, but in summary:
Why is a full membership the best option?

You can take out as many day membership permits as you like but there are some pretty good reasons why a full 12 month membership is better:

  • You get additional insurance coverage for the time you are ‘just’ riding your bike at the same level as the great coverage you get in competition.
  • You only have to fill in forms once every 12 months instead of at every event, saving you time and the club volunteer’s time in administration.
  • Your membership fee has helped to finance IMBA Australia who lobby Local and State Governments and land managers to open, build and maintain trails that are local to you.
  • A full MTBA membership can be used at events held by any other affiliated MTBA club throughout Australia, including at state or national level. You can even accrue UCI points at selected national level events!
  • Lastly, a full MTBA membership saves you money – for a junior if you participate in just 4 or more events or for a senior if you participate in only 5 or more events in 12 months you save!
