Entries Open Tomorrow for 24 Hour

Kramer 31 May 2007 5

Tomorrow at midday, entries open for the Australian 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships, which is the world’s biggest bike race – by number of competitors & total distance covered by all participants during the event. Last year entries closed in less than 3 days with over 2500 people entered. This year the race makes a triumphant return to Mt Stromlo, after being held at Kowen Forest (Western ACT, near Queanbeyan) since the bushfires destroyed the original trails at Mt Stromlo.

This year the race will be even bigger thanks to the all new course at Stromlo Forest Park which will be a much longer “hour glass” shaped course, that will return back past the event centre at the half way point. This will allow competitors to complete shorter half laps at approx 17.5Km each, or the full lap at approx 35Km. As the new course is longer than previous 24 hour events, they will extend the number of competitors up to around 3000. With all the facilities of the new Event Centre at SFP (town mains water & power – OMG!), and the new course, the race is sure to be bigger and better than all previous 24 Hour events. For more details, or to register for your own private hell over the weekend 13-14 October, check the Scott 24 Hour site.

Interestingly entries still appear to be open for the 24 hour, despite a deluge on the opening day which brought down their webserver.

Yes, it is to the East – hence why I am really crap at cycle navigation type races.

Sorry again. Kramer is a dill for not logging out before I posted that. (Or I am a dill for not checking.)

You’re right, Kramer is a dill.

As his deputy editor, I’m sorry I didn’t pick that one up.

I thought Queanbeyan was to the East.
