The Kona Global 24-Hour Series is back for 2006. Participants in this year's version of the only global 24-hour race series will have four opportunities to race their mountain bikes for an entire day, with 24-Hour events planned at Redesdale, Australia, Eschlikon, Switzerland, Catton Hall, England and Snow Mountain Ranch, USA .
All events will feature winner's purses and amenities such as showers, catering, mechanical support and technical support from leading brands, which will vary depending on venue. And, again depending on venue, racers can expect to ride through Aspen or Eucalyptus groves, in the shadow of snowcapped mountains, or on the grounds of a fifteenth century estate.
