Mountain Biking Australia Recognised as a National Sporting Organisation
Congratulations to Mountain Biking Australia (MTBA) for being recognised as a ‘National Sporting Organisation’ (NSO) by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and therefore joining the ranks of 94 other sporting organisations including Cycling Australia and BMX Australia. This is a great benefit to the whole MTB community.
Of the many possibilities this creates this will hopefully lead to clear and supported development pathways and help steer government/private funding towards building and developing MTB related activities and facilities. We’re excited to see what opportunities arise for us as a MTBA affiliated club – perhaps we have the next Commonwealth Games/Olympic representatives in our midst (no, Fat Bike racing isn’t a thing Michael).
