Lab-Gear in association with Southern Highland Cycling Club are proud to announce the new format 2006 Lab-Gear 12 Hours of Darkness. In a rekindling of this very unique and exciting format, the Lab-Gear 12 Hours of Darkness sees riders challenge themselves not only on the legendary SHCC Penrose State Forest singletrack but also tackle riding the race almost entirely in the dark!
Renowned for it's smooth flowing and exceptionally well crafted single track, SHCC's Penrose course is sure to please every rider, from the complete beginner to the most experienced. What's more, the Lab-Gear 12 Hours of Darkness is the ideal eduro race for those who don't want to spend the whole weekend at a race, with a 8pm start and 8am finish, it frees up most of your weekend for those that have to do, errr, more 'important' domestic duties.
The Lab-Gear 12 Hours of Darkness aims to bring the 'grass roots' back to the Enduro format, with a strong, fun theme, kicked back and relaxed race atmosphere and an affordable entry fee of only $52 per rider (the event is being run as a non profit venture). Participants are encouraged to dress up and revel in the 'darkness' and prizes will be awarded to those with the best event costumes as well as cash place prizes.
Open to solo riders, pairs, threes, fours and sixes. Solo places are strictly limited as are overall places due to the capacity of Penrose. Full information and team reservation will be available at www.12darkhours.com from the 8th December.
