Here’s your opportunity to have a positive influence on the mountain biking industry in WA!
WAMBA has been working hard with the Department of Sport and Recreation and WestCycle in the last few years to secure two new paid mountain bike positions. Thanks to these important partnerships, these roles represent a significant injection of funding into the advancement of mountain biking in Western Australia within the next 12 months.
Not only that . . . . . . . if you’ve been involved in high performance within mountain biking, or any other discipline/ sport, and want to be a part of defining the Western Australian High Performance plan and pathway for cycling, there’s a job waiting for you as well!
All the details can be found on the Westcycle website: http://www.westcycle.org.au/vacancies

Registrations for the MTBA Junior Development Camp being held on 6th - 9th October at Pemberton Mountain Bike Park are now open -https://www.registernow.com.au/mtba/ERegister.aspx?E=2671
This camp is not aimed at beginner or top elite riders, but U15 and U17 juniors who already ride/ race and want to improve their skills and knowledge of mountain biking (U19 riders will also be considered). The focus is on all types of riding, as past years have seen both XC and DH riders attend.
This is a great program from Mountain Bike Australia - MTBA to help grassroots junior development in WA.
