DIAL RANGE - 2 DAY EVENT


An epic adventure in the wild mountains that make the Dial Range

Click HERE to enter

To eliminate the 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 then we will all ride to the top of Mt Dial together before we descend back to the MTB park racing Stage 2.

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.

This event will be a stand alone event and not part of a series. We will organise a series over the 2017 / 2018 Summer.
