  • Description

    The SIX HOURS IN THE SADDLE – the #6HITS, is the iconic grass-roots MTB event we all know and love.The event is an endurance mountain bike race which can be entered solo or in a team of 2, 3 or 4 people (same or mixed sex). The competitor/s with the most laps after racing wins.

    And in 2015 we were stoked to continue offering a 3-hour category (…yup, the #3HITS). So you have the choice of 3 or 6 hours. Solo or teams. It’s up to you!

    Solo riders will be testing themselves against the course, the clock and each other! Teams of 2, 3 or 4 (guys, girls or mixed) compete in a relay format, so you can get together and enjoy the sweet single track of the Beechworth Mountain Bike Park.
