7 Good reasons why we put this event on.

You only need one to do it!

 

1...BECAUSE IT'S THE LONGEST AND MOST SCENIC RACE IN THE COUNTRY.

2... BECAUSE NOT ALL MOUNTAIN BIKERS ARE CREATED EQUAL.

3...BECAUSE YOU CAN ONLY RACE IT ONCE A YEAR.

4...BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW GOOD YOU ARE UNTIL YOU HAVE KICKED IT'S BUTT.

5...BECAUSE THE MEDAL YOU GET AT THE END, YOU HAD TO EARN... BIG TIME.

6...BECAUSE IT'S OLD SCHOOL; NO COTTON WOOL. NO SHORTCUTS, NO EXCUSES.

7...BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT RAISING THE BAR.
