The Community CPS 50km Duo Classic is in it’s third year running and is a joint initiative of Bec Henderson and Canberra Off Road Cyclists. The 50km mountain bike pairs race will again be held at Sparrow Hill & East Kowen Forest, just outside of Canberra. The race will be held on the 18th of January 2014.

Riders enter in teams of 2 but this is not a relay style event like the common endurance events. It’s about you and your teammate working together and having a good time while riding some of the best single tracks that Canberra has to offer.

Each pair must start and finish the race together. The course will be a 25km loop of single track and fire road in which each pair will complete two laps. This will ensure riders have the chance to discover, learn and enjoy the course while having the opportunity to pass through the start/finish area to pick up water and nutrition supplies for the second half of the race. The finishing time of the pair will be recorded as the second rider crosses the finish line.
For riders who are not confident in completing the 50km race there will also be a Novice and Under 17 category. These pairs will do just one lap of the 25km loop.

.. worth mentioning that $5 from each entry goes towards junior mtb development in the ACT, the rest goes towards funding Bec Henderson's 2014 international campaign.

The Duo has been postponed due to closure of Kowen Forest because of anticipated hot weather / potential fire conditions. New date TBC.

Damn you, weather! /me shakes fist at sky
