The Hobart Dirt Devils Mountain Bike Club 's Kellevie 12/24 hour mountain bike race will return to the Kellevie Mountain Bike Park in the municipality of Sorell in Australia for its second year on March 29, 2008. Last year's solo champions Andrew Fellowes and Eleanor Patterson will be on hand to defend their titles. Solos, teams of up to six and schools will compete a track that's been lengthened by nine kilometers.
"We are looking forward to another great event that occurs as a result of the generosity of the land owner and support of the mountain biking community," said Duncan Giblin, Race Director.
Last year's riders braved strong winds and a storm to ride through the night and into the next day. This year, the male and female winners of the fastest lap will earn AUS$250. Overall male and female solo winners will be awarded $750.
Registration closes March 7. For more info, visit www.kellevie24.com.
