Registration opens for the 2010 JetBlack 24 hour MTB race
The popular 24 hour JetBlack MTB race starts at Wiseman’s Ferry in Sydney in February 2010.
With Sydney’s only twenty four hour MTB race in its second year at the Del Rio Resort at Wiseman’s Ferry, participants are in for endurance racing in style and luxury again: think improved track, event centre next to a pub, cabins, pool & playground for the kids (we’d like to think you won’t have time for minigolf? but your family might!). On the Saturday, Rocky Trail will also feature a support race – the fourth & final round of their MTB Grand Prix series.
Twenty Four Hours of Rocky Trails?
After the mud-fest of the inaugural twenty four hour event earlier this year at Del Rio, organisers are looking forward to this one even more. “The track is in great shape and we have been working on a new section to get up the hill and around the steep fire trail climb that riders will still vividly remember from this year,” says Juliane Wisata from Rocky Trail Entertainment. “The track will be even more interesting, versatile and provide a good challenge.”
The transition zone will be located again in the heart of the resort, which has been reserved for MTB riders only for the entire weekend.
Categories are for male, female & mixed: Solo, Team 2, Team 3, Team 4, Team 6 and Juniors Team 6. The race starts on Saturday 6 February at 12pm and finishes on Sunday 7th February at 12pm.
Registration is now open at www.rockytrailentertainment.com
Supporting race: Rocky Trail MTB Grand Prix (Fourth & Final Round)
On the same weekend Rocky Trail will also host the fourth and final round of the Rocky Trail MTB Grand Prix. On Saturday Rocky Trail is offering four hours of racing with a preceding qualifying lap to determine the start order for the four hour race. Perfect for the first time racer – experience the buzz and excitement of a twenty four hour event centre, then pump out your qualifying quick lap and ride a comfy 4 hours before mingling with the crowd again for the rest of the weekend in the bush.
