Press Release: By now the locals are starting to know the drill: for one weekend in September, hundreds of lycra-clad mountain bikers invade Mogo for “one of the most enjoyable MTB events” featuring some of the best mountain biking tracks in the country. It’s the annual Netti MTB Enduro and this event has something for everyone!
For those looking for the full experience, 100km of rolling hills, sweet single tracks, some scary narrow bridge crossings and a demanding 2,850m of total climb, the Angry Doctor 100km is the go. This year’s course will be introducing some new single track in the second 50km loop: it seems there is no end to the good surprises the bush around Mogo has to offer!
For those not quite sure the legs can handle the full distance, the Irate Intern 50km will take them back to the event hub halfway through. This will allow riders to enjoy the rest of the day, while feeling a sense of achievement upon completing a challenging event. For some, it will be the only way they will be able to walk properly the next morning at work!
“Mountain bike, what is that?” or “100km?!! Are you crazy?!!”; for the ones uttering those comments, one option: the Nasty Nurse 11km Prologue the day before the main events take place. Not just for beginners, this mini-event is great for kids, and is also an opportunity to try some of the demo bikes provided by the event partners. It is also a great way to get the legs and mind into the swing of things for the next day’s events.
After two sold-out editions in 2007 and 2008, the Netti MTB Enduro on 12-13 September 2009 will be limited to 1,000 riders. Entries are opening on 1 May and for those who want to experience an "amazing course and equally amazing organisation" as Hamish Elliot, Rockstar Riding Team, 2nd Elite Male 100K 2008 said, time will be of the essence when it comes to registering!
Entries are limited and open online 1 May 2009 at 8:30AM.
