West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) is the state representative body for the West Australian mountain bike community.

A volunteer organisation, WAMBA works collaboratively with key stakeholders to identify, develop and sustain mountain bike experiences in Western Australia.

And also acts as a resource for clubs looking for help on trail advocacy and grants, and co-ordinates the racing calendar.

Event Calendar

Following on from the fantastic inaugural event organised last year by Tony Tucknott, PMBC will be organising a second WA Junior Development Camp for later this year. The final details are being finalized but if you are interested save the date. The camp is being funded through MTBA. 

Who qualifies? As there are only limited beds available for this camp, U19 and U17 athletes will receive first preference, then U15. (Please do not apply if you are U13.)

What happens? An awesome weekend of mountain biking fun with like minded people including specialised coaching and instruction for 4 days and plenty of extras. Where is it? Pemberton School Camp, Swimming Pool Road, Pemberton.

When is it? Thursday 9th October to Sunday 12th October 2014.

Why are we doing it? This annual camp focuses on both theoretical and practical skills and teaches you the skills required to compete at your highest level.

WAMBA are the Awesome Foundation Perth's August grant winner. This grant supports the Trail Builder Accreditation Program, which will provide a framework for educating volunteer trail advocates to gain skills, knowledge and experience. The grant application was submitted by Louise Wallace but unfortunately, Louise couldn't collect the grant so she sent this ninja ... I mean, she sent Sam Russell to collect the award on WAMBA's behalf.

Great news for riders in Dunsborough. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Myles Happ, the Cape Mountain Bikers have been awarded $100,000 from the 2015 Lotterywest Grants trails round for construction of trails in the Meelup Regional Park.

Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) have announced the dates for the next two year's National series and the great news for WA is that there will be XC rounds at Pemberton Mountain Bike Park in January 2015 and 2016.

Well done to the tireless efforts of Tony Tucknott and Mark Hudson.

As happy as a pig in shit!

Construction has started on a bunch of new trails to be opened for this years XC State Champs in The Pines. We are letting JD loose on the descents and we will be calling on volunteers after the WAGE race to assist with a number of connections. The new trails will extend lilly trail and connecting to Big Pine. The trails will provide an alternate loop while pines remain and will be the only loop once the western side of the pines is logged.
