BENDIGO SIX HOUR

SIX HOURS OF MTB FUN

About

The Bendigo Six hour will be on Sunday the 27th of November.

Most of the content below will be updated closer to the event, but feel free to read on to get a taste of how awesome our 6/3hr events are.

With the generous support of Bendigo Cycles, Skratch labs and bikecorp there were product and cash prizes are up for grabs. The 6 and 3 hour enduro consisted of two main events, comprising solo riders and teams competing for most laps over a 6 hour duration and a three hour solo session aimed at mountain biking novices through to seasoned pros.

All riders compete on the same course, consisting of berms, wooden structures and heaps of flowing single track.

There will be kids races throughout the day from little tackers to nearly teens around separate loop tracks.

The event was held just off the highway at 5242 Calder Highway Big Hill and parking was only permitted on the highway side. You will need to carry your gear through the tunnel and into the event village. Keep your eyes on the website and facebook for updates.
