Giant 12 Hour Day / Nighter And 6 Hour Blast 2011

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Fri 8/Apr/11 5:28pm

RACE INFORMATION: This exciting mountain bike relay event is one race you don't want to miss out on... it will be 12 and 6 Hours of non-stop mountain biking action! Kick back with other mountain bikers in a very social atmosphere. Race as hard as you want, be competitive, be relaxed but whatever, just come and enjoy some great mountain biking. You can choose from either the 12 Hour Day / Nighter or the 6 Hour Blast. You can enter either event in a team or for those wanting the ultimate challenge, as a Solo Rider.

ENTRY: 2011 entries will open in May.
WHERE: McLeans Forest Park, McLeans Island Road, Christchurch.

The entrance to the venue area is approx 1km before/after (depending on which direction you are driving from) the main entrance to McLeans Forest Park. It will be well signposted on race day.

COURSE: The mountain bike track at McLeans Forest Park is purpose built and features free flowing single track with bermed corners making for superb smooth riding. The track follows the natural terrain of the area, winding through the forest, and up, over and along the stop banks. There are no major hills but plenty of undulating riding. On race day we will mix up the single track with 4WD tracks so there will be plenty of places for passing. This is a great course and suitable for all levels of mountain bikers.

START: 10 am for both the 12 Hour Day / Nighter and 6 Hour Blast.

FINISH: 4pm for the 6 Hour Blast.
10pm for the 12 Hour Day / Nighter.

yeah, dumb move putting on a 12 hour in the same region as another one that many of us from Chch would rather enter. Riding the Timaru track much more funner than Mcleans.

Timaru is the 19th November so no clash of dates. Unless you set your calendar foward by 3 weeks for daylight saving.

Timaru changed their date BECAUSE of this clash.
