Marathon Challenge Track Ride
Mid January we took a ride of the Marathon Challenge track - which (apart from some leaves on the track which we need to sort out) was a wicked ride! All the event management processes are coming together and we're getting very excited about this years Marathon Challenge. Have you guys started your training yet?
So some of the team took a trip down to Tassie for this years Wildside - four days, 140km of competition and 60km of cruising on some of the best tracks.
The event lived up to its name! It was indeed wild. Wild tracks, wild weather and a wild time. Rohin was just off the pace of the elites but racing just inside the top 10 for most stages. It was real MTBing and as can often happen mechanical issues throw you a curve ball. Even with this though Rohin ended in 11th overall and 3rd in Veteran men.

Dirty Gran Fondo
So 2012 is going to see Big Hill Events take on the masses at the Dirty Gran Fondo! So what is a GRAN FONDO? Energy, excitement, atmosphere!-- this is gran fondo, a phenomenon that has taken Italy by storm. Gran fondomeans long distance or great endurance (there are running and cross country ski gran fondos too). Some cyclists ride for the satisfaction and pride of just making it to the finish line. Others want to improve upon their previous times, and to challenge themselves, their friends, their teammates. And some ride to win!
