Event Overview

24-hour MTB racing is the ultimate test of endurance

It is a Solo, Team Relay and Kids mountain biking event starting at 12pm Saturday and finishing at 12pm Sunday.

Solo Legacy

Australia is the home of some of the most successful 24-hour Solo Mountain Bike Champions and you will compete alongside them. Sleep = overrated.

Teamwork makes the dream work

Compete with your mates and decide as a team how many laps each person rides – do 1 or a whole bunch in pairs, threes, fours or teams of six..

There IS rest for the wicked

If 24 hours sound a bit too big or you’re looking to introduce someone new to the sport we have a 6+6hr event that could suit you! Awesome vibe to race for 6hrs on Saturday, then get to rest overnight from 6pm. Re-start at 6am as the sun rises.

The perfect event for a social mountain biking getaway

Get your mates together and bring the whole family! Lots to do for them in the region while you race. We’ll put on a free kids time trial to tire out the little shredders for you. use to highlight features.

Riders compete for prizes and bragging rights

Set up on the lush meadows of the showgrounds at Rydal – camp and team base right next to your car! Experience a weekend filled with camaraderie and fun racing on the awesome Lidsdale MTB trails that you’ll never forget!

Thank you for promoting such a well organised event last weekend in Rydal,

Your attention to details such as sufficient and quality food available, clean and well maintained (lots of toilet paper) amenities, music and charging station (e-bike rider 😁) was much appreciated.
Kudos also to outer image collective their staff were unobtrusive yet friendly, the competitors were all polite and courteous whether passing or being passed and helpful which speaks volumes for our discipline.
Thank you again, see you next year.
