Hi - been 5 years since I did my last Convict 100km in just under 6 hrs and ride about once every two weeks these days with kids keeping me very busy.

Has anyone done either the 44 or 67? I still have the appetite for XC races but the legs are far from conditioned. The old Convict 50 had @ 40% roads and not that hard apart from Wrights Creek up Jacks Climb... so wondering if 44/67 offer more challenge.

Feedback would be appreciated.

I've done the 68km version a couple of times after giving the 50 away because it was basically pretty boring. The 68 now has a tough climb up Jack's Track, the canoe bridge (now wide enough for gumbies like me to ride) and then up Shepards Gully and north on the techy bit of the OGNR, turning off before going down into 10 Mile Hollow, followed by a steep descent and the usual flattish last 10kms or so into town. Much better than the 50, but not as tough a workout as the 100. The 44 has the first climb and the canoe bridge and then a run back into St Albans along the Settlers Rd, so all fire trail and road.
