Lets get down to Canberra for a weekend of exploration and training.
Having not been to Sparrow Hill I'd like to get down for an exploratory ride prior to the Mont and of course log a number of kays training.

Sparrow Hill Saturday
Majura or Stromlo or other Sunday

I'd expect it to be a fairly long days but with breaks here and there for food and water refils. Primarily this is a training ride but I would expect a fair amount of social activity as well.

Its now all go with the official web site now up check it out here http://solo24hour.com.au/ .

Ok the race is almost upon us and we have quite a bit of nobmob interest and it looks like we should have a large contingent competing and supporting so it should be an awesome weekend. If you are going to enter hopefully you have been training your arse off if not you have a little more time to get organised but definitely not too much so get on that bike and go riding and if you don’t feel like a ride its called training so get out there and do some.

Ride the Bird in 2009!

Hey! Welcome to the MONT 24 Hour Race, a classic weekend of mountain biking with mates and is a must-do event for first timers and hardened mountain bikers alike.

We invite you to enter a team of four, six or more riders and fly around Sparrow's flowing single track with huge grins on your faces. While there’s plenty of ‘racing’ to be had, the MONT also enjoys a pretty laid-back atmosphere and our dedicated event management team and fantastic sponsors are there to see you have a good time, on or off the track.

Hi all,

** NOTE - NOW LEAVING AT 6:00 am TO ENSURE ENOUGH EATING TIME AND STILL BE AT STROMLO IN TIME **

I will be driving down to Stromlo this Sunday to watch Sam Hill and Nathan Rennie smash the competition. I would be leaving Cremorne quite early, about 6:30 a.m. to be there in time to watch the downhill semis at 10:30.

If anyone else was interested in doing the trip, or eating brekky on the way, please put down your name and we can car convoy down there and turn up together. I need the friends. Smiling

Bring your cow bells! Smiling

See you out there.

Liam.

For all those wanting to watch the World Champs 30th - 31st August but just don't have a crew to make it happen.

This is now 'locked in'

We will leave early Saturday morning (7am) and return Sunday night (9pm).

Bring your bike! for a ride Saturday morning. Majura Pines is an option, but there are also tracks next to the event that can be ridden. (might be a good option for people wanting to watch the XC)

Accomodation options are to either camp or find a reasonable and cheap motel/lodge/hostel

The final 8 Hour for the BMC Working Week Series for 2008 is at Stromlo, and it is indeed a part of the Nissan UCI World Cup Festival - in fact, it's the very first event of the Festival (one week beforehand)!

It's a bit of a hike, but NobMoB has had some good results in the previous rounds, and the 8 hr format is really good fun.

I'm planning on heading down Sat arvo with Groover, camping overnight.

This will be good preparation for the Scott 24, getting to know the track, logistics, camping etc.
