Race Info


Saturday, 20 July 2024

This 3 hour race event is the opportunity to crack out your lights💡🚴💡 as we head into the cooler winter racing season across the district. Riding starts at 4.00 pm and once the dust is stirred up the race continues through dusk, into the night for this 3 hour game of dodging shadows and rabbits 🐇. Lights will need to be on bikes for any riding after sunset. Last lap must be completed, crossed over the timing mat by 7.00 pm. Collect your race plates from 3.30 pm, with race briefing occurring at 3.45 pm (15 minutes prior to race start). You must have your own suitable lighting mounted and illuminated to continue racing after sunset. Dinner served after, around 7.15 pm around the Campfire! Pulled pork or beef on a roll with coleslaw and can of drink.

Race Route/Loop

The course will provide the opportunity for a fast and flowing pace, utilising the mostly wide and flowy sections of Tamworth Mountain Bike Park.

As always, you can opt to ride until you've had enough (ride for an hour, take an hour off, ride a bit more) - the most laps in the shortest total time counts.
