What: Convict 100 MTB Classic
When: 5th May 2012
Where: St Albans Region ~ 105km North West of Sydney
The Convict 100, one of Australia’s premier 100km marathon events will return on the 5th May 2012 for another “century of dirt”. For the first time in the event history, the Convict 100 will be staged on a Saturday giving all riders and supporters an opportunity to “properly” enjoy the St. Albans hospitality after the race.
Hot showers and live music will be available on Saturday night and if you don’t have any accommodation, just book a two man tent in the Real Insurance race village for $10. Entries for the Convict 100 open on the 1st December @ 9am and with numbers capped at 750 in the 100km event, you will have to be fast.
The Convict 100 is regarded as one of Australia’s most challenging mountain bike endurance races, consistently inspiring all entrants to push their personal boundaries.
Now in its seventh year, the course follows the historic Convict Trail through the Dharug and Yengo National Parks. The mix of fast fire trail, technical single track, rocky descents, and spectacular ridgeline views is unmatched by any other MTB event. The Convict 100 starts and finishes in the historic township of St. Albans and competitors can choose between the full “Century of Dirt” and the 50km course.
