The Convict 100 is an ‘institution’ in Australia mountain biking! As one of the first marathon events established in Australia, it consistently inspires all entrants to push their personal boundaries. The 2017 event will be the ‘lucky’ 13th installment of the “Century of Dirt” and with 100km, 68km & 44km courses available there is a distance to suit riders of all skill & fitness levels.

Hosted from the sleepy township of St. Albans only 2 hours North of Sydney, the course follows the historic Convict Trail through the heart of the Hawkesbury Valley, taking in some of the best scenery the area has to offer. The mix of fast fire trail, technical rock gardens, rocky descents and spectacular ridgeline views is unmatched by any other MTB event. It is rugged, remote and one epic adventure on a bike!

The race starts and finishes in the historic township of St. Albans where a community (and the third oldest pub in Australia) welcomes all competitors with open arms. Riders can choose between the full “Century of Dirt” 100km, the “Convict Half” 68km or a 44km introductory ride for beginners and juniors. This is one mountain bike weekend you do not want to miss!

The last time I raced this was 2013 so if the weather is looking good I might even come out of retirement next month Smiling

Welcome back to mountain biking Brian. After your stack in the Cape Epic it's been a long way back. Hope you smash it!

Thanks. I did race a few marathons after the Cape Epic but then had knee issues so that put me out for a while Sad
