Event Wrap Up

May 9, 2023

The Convict 100 for 2023 is done and dusted!

Congratulations to all who came and conquered the course, there were some outstanding times put down and every single rider should be proud to have taken on their respective Convict 100 course.

What a weekend we had! It was like a whirlwind of dust, sweat, and gears! But boy, was it worth it! Over 1050 riders were brave enough to take on the epic mountain biking adventure.

We hope you all had a blast pushing yourself to the limit on some of the toughest terrain around. And if you’re feeling a little sore, just remember: that’s the sign of a job well done! The trails were as they always are ungroomed, untamed, wild and oh-so-fun, all part of the Convict experience.

The 100km race saw some unbelievably tight racing in the male category with Joel Green coming out on top with 03:58:39, ahead of teammate Tali Lane Welsh 03:59:07, who beat Convict legend, Jason English to the line in a sprint. Em Viotto secured a convincing win for the female riders, ahead of Leigh Mcgregor in second and Katrina Skellern in third.

The 68km course saw Darren Cash as the first male rider home and young gun Caitlyn Brazier the first female rider back to the finish line.

The 44km win was taken by Andrew Williams with a very tidy 01:36:28 and redemption after being pipped at the post in 2021 while Lynne Moore took out the top spot for the women.

A special shout out to Miles Morrison, Peter Cohen and Frank Kenny for ticking over 1,000km ridden at the Convict 100 down the years and joining the fabled list of riders who have done ‘A Tonne of Dirt’.

Full results are available HERE.  All race photos by the legends from OuterImage are all available HERE.

The trail camaraderie, grit, and good humour made this event a truly memorable one. We will be talking about his one for a while to come.

Massive thanks to our event sponsors: Hawesbury City Council, Mountain Culture Beer Co, Tailwind Nutrition, Retreat at Wisemans, and Ground Effect. And the biggest shout out to the St. Albans Rural Fire Brigade for their assistance course marshalling and our volunteers and sweepers for their time and energy. We couldn’t run an event like this without you.

If you pre-ordered merchandise and forgot to pick it up at the rego tent we can organise to post it out to you, just email us [email protected] with your full name and postal address.
