The ACT Sprint and Middle Distance Championships (SS3/4) were events where the following age classes applied to the courses:
||Mens 21 Elite (Mens Open)

You can choose to ride any course at any event. At age-class events, you can choose to ride competitively in either your age-class, or a younger age-class (e.g. 55 year old man riding in M40), or you can choose to ride non-competitively on any course you wish.
Note that if you ride different courses at age-class events (SS3/4) compared to normal events in the 2012 Cranks Bikes NSW MTBO SuperSeries, you may earn SuperSeries points on two different courses which cannot be combined.
The requirement that there were at least 3 riders who rode in at least 5 events before a winner could be declared in any given category has been waived in 2012.
Points are awarded based on the rider's finishing position in each category, as per the following table:
Event Organisers / Course Setters
Event organisers and course setters will be awarded points as follows:
• The same number of points as they scored in the previous NSW MTBO SuperSeries event, or 20 points whichever is greater.
• If they did not compete in the previous MTBO SuperSeries event, then they will be awarded 20 points.
