An Epic Adventure In The Wild Mountains That Make The Dial Range
To eliminate an epic liaison stage between the Leven River and Mt Dial we have made the decision to run this event over 2 days.
Day 1 - Consists of Stage 1 on the legendary trails in Marcelo's backyard and Stage 2 will start from the top of Mt Dial and descend all the way back to near the MTB park.
For the adrenaline junkies, we will then have a slope style contest on the crazy features at the Penguin MTB Park before calling it a day.
Day 2 - Start and finish at the Gnomon Farm. Stage 3 will be the one for the speed freaks on the Sth Duncan trail then stage 4 will be the epic descent from near Mt Duncan to the Leven river. This stage is raw, steep in places and ENDURO AS. . . . . You know what. The perfect finish to an epic adventure near the sleepy coastal town of Penguin.
Day 1 - Saturday - 16km + practice laps at Marcelo's
Day 1 car parking - There is very limited parking at Marcelo's. Please park at the MTB park and commute to Marcelo's (5 minutes). If you have family/friends attending to give you a good heckle and show some stoke, then you are welcome to park at Marcelo's. If you turn up to Marcelo's with competitors only you will be turned around so please take note. Saturday's proceedings will finish at the MTB park.
In order to manage numbers on the top of Mt Dial and ensure minimal impact, we are going to split into 2 groups on Day 1. Group one will race stage 1 and group 2 will race stage 2 before swapping. A start list will be available prior to the event to highlight which group you are in. Both groups will meet at the Penguin MTB Park post race.
