25 hours of racing in 2013
5 & 6 October 2013 at Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra, Australia
Change for 2013. We’ll be adding a bonus hour of racing making the race the Scott 25 Hour. This is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of CORC. 2013 dates are 5&6 October for the Scott 25hr and 12&13 October for the WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour MTB Championships. There will be no solo category in the 2013 Scott. All solo riders are welcome to enter the WEMBO World Solo the following weekend and all the team riders are more than welcome to come along and watch. See the world's best solo 24 hour riders in action. There is a separate entry site for the WEMBO World Solo 24Hr MTB Championships.
6+7 category for 2013. These new categories are for teams of 2, 4 and 6 - male/female/mixed (but no age groups). It is aimed at riders who enjoy participating and who want to do something else during the night. Teams in this class will race the first 6 hours and then stop on the first lap their team finishes after 6 hours of riding. The night is up to you - sleep, party on to the live band or provide a cheer squad for the other riders. On Sunday morning they will start at 0600 plus their finish time difference from Saturday, then finish with the 25 hour categories. This means that if your team's last lap on Saturday finished at 18:20:30 your first rider on Sunday morning would be released by the starter at 06:20:30. If you decided to stop before 1800 Saturday you would start at 0600 Sunday.
360 hours of persistence. There are 5 riders who have ridden in all of CORC's 24hr races since 1999. If they make the 2013 race that will make 15. These riders will all be honoured at the race start and receive special awards for their 360 hours of persistence! They are: Paul Brodie, Shaun Lewis, Paul Mason, Wayne Morris and Michael Wade. If any other riders think they have ridden in all 14 so far (we may have missed people with a name-change, for example) then please contact email@example.com.
Its going to be a huge week. We start with the Scott 25 Hour on 5/6 October and finish with the WEMBO World Solo 24Hr Championships on 12/13 October. In between there will be lots of action at Stromlo, including the Australian Defence Force Cycling Championships and you can check out the world's best solo 24 hour riders getting some last minute training in.
There you have it. This site contains all you need to know to become part of Australia’s biggest 25 hour mountain biking festival, put on by the club that puts back into mountain biking, and we look forward to seeing you in Canberra in October.
