Australia’s epic 24-hour rail trail endurance cycling event
From 7.00 pm on Friday night, this event will run all night and through the following day.
This event will be the second BVRT Ultra Extreme 322 km bike race on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
Just completing the course is a major achievement, but if you can get anywhere under 20 hours, you're superhuman (current record of 14:36:39 is held by Cameron Wickold, Bruce Flesser and Wayne Thompson, joint winners of the first BVRT E2Ex2) .
This is 24-hour gravel racing for a total distance of 322 km with a net height gain of 375 metres on a challenging track.
Following the code of the Tour Divide, this "challenge is based on the purest of wagers: the gentlemen's bet or agreement. Nothing to win or lose but honor."
The only prize will be the satisfaction of a podium place and all finishers will get a custom cycling shirt designed for this event.
Participants are expected to be self-sufficient, but there will a safety team following the event to give assistance if required. There will be food bag drops at Fernvale, Esk, Moore, and Yarraman.
This is an event for experienced and very fit cyclists only. It's unsuitable for anyone who has not had experience of riding 200 - 300 km off-road in a single day.
Bicycles must be suitable for riding off-road – mountain bikes or cyclocross bikes only.
