Ride hard out or ride for fun!
Experience the best 12 hour race this side of the black stump (and maybe the other side as well). One of the best 12 hour day/night set ups around. A great course located in Centennial Park, right in the heart of Timaru. Undulating terrain, a few sharp but short climbs and nothing overly technical, perfect for longer races and suitable for all levels of mountain bikers. Purpose-built walking tracks and some single tracks developed over the last few years. Warm, fine weather (pre-ordered).
Besides a fantastic track that is highly rated by riders, the Timaru 12 Hour is a very social event and festive occasion. A tent village is set up inside Centennial Park and the course winds its way through and past your allocated tent site. Lots of teams bring in those extra little things that help with their performance and make things a little more comfortable such as generators, lights, warm up bikes, BBQs, fridges and even couches and a spa pool!
Your mission - cover as many laps as possible during 12 hours of riding. Ride as a team or, for those wanting the ultimate challenge, as a solo rider.
Cool transition camp area, heaps of spot prizes, trophies and cash prizes to grade winner. All riders get a huge breakfast next morning - just what you need to refuel.
