    EVENT 3 (E3):
    Saturday 19 October, Australian Sprint Distance Championships, Sutton Road

    Starts from 2pm to 3pm.
    Less than 20 minutes drive east of central Canberra, and only 15 minutes from Stringybark Hill.

    The map is dominated by a tarred race circuit, surrounded by open grassland, scattered trees, and a profusion of industrial debris. Offtrack riding is permitted everywhere, and riders will need to carefully judge when to cut straight across country and when best to utilise the fragmented and rough off-road track network.
