ABOUT THE RACE
The mountain bike pairs race is held at Sparrow Hill & East Kowen Forest, just outside of Canberra.
The Duo Classic offers race distances of 50km, 25km and 10km as well as a kids race for 10 year and below.
Riders enter in teams of 2 but this is not a relay style event like the common endurance events. It’s about you and your teammate working together and having a good time while riding some of the best single tracks that Canberra has to offer.
Each pair must start and finish the race together. The course will be a 25km loop of single track and fire road in which each pair will complete two laps. This gives riders the opportunity to pass through the start/finish area to pick up water and nutrition supplies for the second half of the race. The finishing time of the pair will be recorded as the second rider crosses the finish line.
