The Blackbutt 12 hour mountain bike event
Where: Blackbutt Oval, Wauchope
When: 4th March 2017, 10 am till 10 pm
Categories: 12 hour or 6+6 hour, solo, relay teams & esprit de corps teams
Everyone can take part in the event from beginner through to the competitive rider. The aim is to complete as many laps in a 12 hour period as you can, either as a solo rider or in a team of friends or work-mates. You can do one lap then change over to your next rider or do several before changing over to your next rider. It is up to you and your team. You can go as hard and fast as you like or take it at a slow relaxed pace and stop and start as often as you like. It’s all up to you.
If you have never been in a Teams Event before they are great fun. You form a team of friends or work-mates or if you would like to take part but can’t form a team we can try to include you in a team or you can go it alone as a solo competitor. Laps are 15km and take about 50 – 90 minutes to complete depending on your fitness then you change over to your next team mate or you can do a lap or a few laps and then change over. It’s all up to your team and your team strategy.
Team riders will also have the option when entering to enter the Esprit de Corps where all team riders can ride together on track as appose to a traditional relay team. More information about this on the entry page.
The course is designed to suit all riders skill levels, not too hilly or technical but there will be some sections where there is two ways you can go, the easy way (usually the slower trail) or for the experienced rider something a bit more technical.
Remember you can go as fast and hard as you like or at your own pace. It’s all up to you. You can start and stop as often as you like. How you take on the course is up to you. This event is ran into the darkness of night so you will need lights!
