The National Cup is designed to encourage participation and recognise individual rider achievements across the disciplines of:

Every Australian Mountain Bike race will now be classified into one of four categories determined by the standard of the event. These four (4) categories are:
Platinum: National Championships
Gold: National Level Events (formerly Tier 1)
