Australia is the home of some of the most successful 24-hour Solo Mountain Bike Champions and at the Jetblack 24 Hour in The Seven Valleys one can compete alongside them!

Most of all, it is a weekend out on the trails, riding and racing with mates – a celebration of MTB racing. We look forward to a stellar line-up of solo and team riders in the 24H and 6+6H classifications this year at Lidsdale State Forest in Lithgow’s Rydal!

First up – the trails ARE DRY!! This is the perfect all-weather venue. A huge thank you to the local Central Tablelands MTB Club and the NSW Forestry Corporation for their hard work in the race lead up!
