The Gambler is a unique mountain bike event offering a fun challenging race with a point of difference, being the introduction of a strategic element.

Riders have 4 hours to accumulate as many points as possible by completing a choice of 4 different trail loops in the order of their choosing - each loop is worth different points according to their length and difficulty.

Therefore riders/teams need to plan and strategize how they will race this event – will they do the same loop over and over, or perhaps attack the difficult loops worth more points first – who knows? Under this format it will not necessarily be the fastest rider that wins, but the most strategic rider/s of them all. This event caters for all riding abilities - take it as seriously as you want or just have a fun day out on the trails with friends and family. It is family friendly and has a special loop that only 8 - 12 year olds are permitted to ride on.

The categories are:
- Solo: Male; Female
- Teams (2-4 riders): Male; Female; Mixed; Family (max 2 Adults)
- School Teams (2-4 riders): Senior 13-17yrs; Junior 8–12 yrs.
