Why You Need To Conquer The Convict3rd February 2020
The Convict 100 is an ‘institution’ in Australian mountain biking!
As one of the first marathon events established in Australia, it consistently inspires entrants to push their personal boundaries.
The 2020 event will be the 16th installment of the “Century of Dirt” and with 100km, 68km & 44km courses available there is a distance to suit riders of all skill & fitness levels.
2020 will also be an especially important event for the township of St Albans as they recover from the devastating bushfires that have impacted so many. Riders will see the impact these fires had first hand as well as the amazing ability of the bush to regenerate after a fire.
The Convict is a vital fundraiser for our friends at St Albans RFS who worked so hard to protect the township. Coming along will not only get you a great day out on your bike but also directly contribute to the guys and girls from St Albans RFS.
Hosted from the sleepy township of St. Albans only 2 hours North of Sydney, the course follows the historic Convict Trail through the heart of the Hawkesbury Valley, taking in some of the best scenery the area has to offer.
The mix of fast fire trail, technical rock gardens, rocky descents and spectacular ridgeline views is unmatched by any other MTB event, all on tracks cut many moons ago by a cattle thief. It is rugged, remote and one epic adventure on your bike!
Entries are now open so grab your mates and start planning your escape to the Convict 100!
You don’t even have to shave your legs….
