What is The Kowalski Classic?

For nigh on two decades, local trail building legends Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the mysterious Kowalski Brothers have been hand-crafting trails in the ACT region. Thanks to their dirty work, Sparrow Hill and East Kowen Forest have become single track nirvana. The innuagural Kowalski Classic gives you the chance to race it all in one hit. Ride the Bird, then the Kow, then the Bird, then the Kow!

The Kowalski Classic is the ultimate single track enduro with two race distances taking in the very best trails in Sparrow Hill and East Kowen.

Round 3 of the National XC Series is held at Stromlo. I figured its close enough for the Nobmobbers to be interested.

Racaing XC at Stromlo is something else. Sure - riding all the trails in a 24, or at the end of Capital Punishment is good, but imagine hitting the Luge track full gas with fresh legs.....
The XC at National level is not to be feared, just enjoyed. We all spend so much on bikes, kit etc - why not ride with the best in the country - in your own age group?

We've Gone Global.CORC’s Scott Australian 24 Hour MTB Championships, the largest race of its type in the world and Australia’s original 24 Hour, is now affiliated as a Pillar Event with 24 Hours of Adrenalin so the great fun and participation event that everyone loves is still the same, still at Stromlo, but with a different (and longer) name. But, to all Australian Mountain Bikers, its still "The Scott".

Hi - 2nd leg of the 'Intro to Aussie MTB riding' for my brother, who is a retired MTB rider.

We'll be hitting Stromlo and doing all the favourites. It will extremely relaxed, is likely to involve crashing, but will not be fast.
We are riding Wingello on the Friday, so he will probably be broken from that.

Anyone is welcome, we'll be the two 'ranga' poms in the carpark.
