Welcome to the 2012 Scott Australian 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships.

We've Gone Global. CORC’s Scott Australian 24 Hour MTB Championships is the largest race of its type in the world. So the great fun and participation event that everyone loves is still the same, still at Stromlo, but now its part of WEMBO in Australia, Italy and the UK to provide regular world-level competition for 24 hour riders. But, to all Australian Mountain Bikers, its still "The Scott".

The HourGlass Course is Back. To allow for increased rider numbers, provide heaps of variation out there on the mountain, and make it less crowded for everyone, the 2012 Scott will bring back the HourGlass course from 2007, 2008 and 2011. This is the Red Lap and the Blue Lap. 2 Laps, 2 timing points, 2 transitions, 2 things more to chat about before and after the race and heaps more fun. When you finish one lap of the course, you are automatically transitioned to the next lap of the opposite colour. Sounds complicated, works simple. For the riders, it means that the field is spread out over 32 Km but you only ever have to ride a maximum of 16 Km in one go if that's all you want to do between breaks.

More Support Packages. Following on from their popularity at the world solos last year, Solos and Pairs can now book 3x3 Hoecker Marquees fronting onto the course (either fully fitted out or empty) to make their life a bit easier. The standard Team and Expo Marquee packages, with 6x6 Hoecker Marquees are also available. You can book and pay for these as part of your entry on the entry section of the website, or you can email CORC to request a separate booking, invoice for your company etc.

We have set up a photo album for you here where you will be able to view and download lots of info, such as road maps, course maps, an explanation of the HourGlass course, village plans and some general photos to get you ready for October.

There you have it. This site contains all you need to know to become part of Australia’s biggest 24 hour mountain biking festival, and we look forward to seeing you in Canberra in October

Ride Gallery

went down to help out a mate doing solo & ended up in a team of old buggers with my brother & his old school mates because on the Friday one of the guys came off & broke his collarbone . That leaves me with a chance too do a few laps , the climb up on the red was heartbreaking as no riding had been done for at least 3 weeks , I felt every breath past thru the minutes climbing up but when I went past the caravan check station up top ,I couldn't stop smiling all the way till the transition area awesome downhill section that is where I made up for lost climbing skills .

Gazza

As team capitan for our Masters Team, congratulations on an awesome result. Even with 4 men you certainly had our measure with fast consistent laps. The six pack is coming - and german beer you shall receive.

For those interested, Gazza placed 1st in a 4 man masters team and 14the overal in a very quality field with 32 laps.

The Jet Racings masters came in 3rd in 6 man Masters and 27th Overal with 31 laps, whilst the Jet Racing Elite team also place 3rd in the open / elite teams category and took 3rd overal.

Great work to all that particaated, great results all round !!

Beer not needed. (unless already purchased? Eye-wink )
Graciously admitting defeat in the six pack comp is more than enough for me.
I think we're all winners this weekend.
Racing in those conditions was pretty ordinary. To keep going through the night in order to get a place on the podium is pretty extraordinary.
Well done to all!

Top work GAZZA on the 1st place. No way I'd ever do a team of 4 in a 24hr.

Great results all round guy's some good consistent riding. I had a look online Sunday morning to see how you were all tracking.

Don't think much of the snow though - hope you kept warm?

Mind you, in my eyes, anyone who got up at daft o'clock to do a lap or two in those conditions is a champ.
Well done to all!

Yeah, well done Gazza. Great result. Gav's team also did really well with a 3rd place in mens 4's and 10th overall

I have shared my views of the race here.....
