13 and 14 October 2012 at Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra, Australia.
Welcome to the 2012 Scott Australian 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships.
We've Gone Global. CORC’s Scott Australian 24 Hour MTB Championships is the largest race of its type in the world. So the great fun and participation event that everyone loves is still the same, still at Stromlo, but now its part of WEMBO in Australia, Italy and the UK to provide regular world-level competition for 24 hour riders. But, to all Australian Mountain Bikers, its still "The Scott".
The HourGlass Course is Back. To allow for increased rider numbers, provide heaps of variation out there on the mountain, and make it less crowded for everyone, the 2012 Scott will bring back the HourGlass course from 2007, 2008 and 2011. This is the Red Lap and the Blue Lap. 2 Laps, 2 timing points, 2 transitions, 2 things more to chat about before and after the race and heaps more fun. When you finish one lap of the course, you are automatically transitioned to the next lap of the opposite colour. Sounds complicated, works simple. For the riders, it means that the field is spread out over 32 Km but you only ever have to ride a maximum of 16 Km in one go if that's all you want to do between breaks.
More Support Packages. Following on from their popularity at the world solos last year, Solos and Pairs can now book 3x3 Hoecker Marquees fronting onto the course (either fully fitted out or empty) to make their life a bit easier. The standard Team and Expo Marquee packages, with 6x6 Hoecker Marquees are also available. You can book and pay for these as part of your entry on the entry section of the website, or you can email CORC to request a separate booking, invoice for your company etc.
We have set up a photo album for you here where you will be able to view and download lots of info, such as road maps, course maps, an explanation of the HourGlass course, village plans and some general photos to get you ready for October.
There you have it. This site contains all you need to know to become part of Australia’s biggest 24 hour mountain biking festival, and we look forward to seeing you in Canberra in October
