I will be trying to revisit the Mont course , if i dont get lost .....18 k'S of sweet single track if not just ride / explore the best trails around for an hour or two or three.... after this i will need to feed ...Gluten free red rooster fills the belly here
And all going well scoot off to Stromlo for a hot lap of the Std XC Course ( well not that hot at 45-47 min night laps for me ) If there is anyone here to keep me company i could be convinced to explore some more but as the place feels to me like Wolf Creek at night, on my own i only have the courage to bolt around one time

If you have always wanted to race at Stromlo and never had the chance , now is the time ! Round one of the Corc racing season and it is lots of fun , race hard but finish with a smile on your face . I usually find a nice cafe afterwards to contemplate the drive home ,and laugh at my abysmal performance in the race ..... ok not really but its heaps of fun all the same Give it a go .... you know you want to !!

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.
