The 3 hour race is designed to accommodate the beginners, families and younger riders wanting to challenge their ability or take on their first race. With the open flat terrain we have at our disposal our intended course will be great for spectators. 3 hour riders will still be a part of the 6 and 12 hour race with the transition circuit being together. The 6 and 12 hour event is open to riders 12 years and over if in a team, and 16 years and over if riding Solo. If you are a BEGINNER RIDER and new to riding/racing, you must be able to ride competently and with the necessary skill and fitness required for an event such as this.
