PUT THIS ONE IN YOUR CALENDAR!!

August 23rd, 2pm
The WMTBC is pretty excited about this event – we’re hoping to have 10+ 2-person teams representing the Whitsundays – check out the chalkboard at Ride Whitsundays to find a team-mate!!
This race consists of 6-hours of riding as a solo, or in a 2/3/4 person team. The more people in your team the less riding you do – we think that 2-person teams is a great option.
From the start you and your partner/team mates take it in turns to ride the 30-minute course. The first three hours will be during day-light hours, but after 5pm you’ll need lights!
There is no requirement to be racing at all times and you don’t need to do the same amount of riding as your partner – if you have one partner that wants to do one lap to your two laps’ that’s absolutely fine.
The only rule… you MUST HAVE FUN!
We will set up a big WMTBC transition area where all our supporters can sit together and hand solo riders energy drinks and chocolate bars as they come through transition and we can all cheer each other on.
Racing finishes at 8pm with prize giving held around the big communal camp fire over an awesome BBQ dinner.
Bring your family and your camping gear – we’re setting up tents at the mountain bike park and staying the night after the event.
For more information head in to Ride Whitsundays and talk to Chris – she’ll sort you out with a partner and all the information you’ll need to know!!
