The increasingly popular Victorian Enduro Series will come to end at the grand finale held by Big Hill Events at the Buxton Mountain Bike Park on the 10th of November.
As part of the series riders can choose the 6 or 3 hour option – riding laps around the Buxton MTB course (roughly 12k) for this period of time. Riding solo sound too much like hard work? Then riders can enter as part of a team of 2 or 3, taking it in turns to complete laps during the 6 hour period.
The first year attracted over 250 riders and their friends and family to the Marysville area throughout the weekend. Closer to 300 riders are expected this year with word of mouth spreading about how fantastic the riding at the event was last year.
The course itself is a 12k intermediate circuit of 100% singletrack which is bermed to an extent and as a result makes for a fun, fast flowing ride. With the event staged in November it will encourage mountain bikers and fair weather cyclists back on to their bikes following the wet winter.
From a riders perspective – Big Hill Events absolutely love the MTB Park and visit it regularly, there were a number of really enthusiastic comments about the course from last year such as:
In July 2012 Big Hill Events produced a promo video for the Buxton MTB trail titled “Velo de Buxton”, which shows off the trails and encourages riders of all abilities to ride at Buxton.
Big Hill Events are very proud to be supporting the Charity Group, Challenge; which brings colour and relief to the lives of children and families living with cancer as they face the pressures of a life threatening illness. The event hopes to raise money for Challenge through entry fees and selling Challenge merchandise at the event, along with encouraging riders to donate to this very worthy cause.
Registration prices are low to attract riders of all abilities and start from just $25 for juniors and $50 for adults, as an added bonus the first 200 entrants will get limited edition Buxton Bootcamp Nemisis socks!
There will be free activities and camping on the Saturday – with course rides available, Buxton Burger round the corner (and happy to deliver!) and a projector showing a couple of films in the evening – making it a Big Hill Events weekend.
Registrations are now open for this year’s event.
