In Conyers, Georgia, Trek/VW mountain-biker Chris Eatough is getting aserious challenge in his bid for a seventh consecutive 24 Hours of Adrenalin World Solo Championship (held form noon October 7th to noon October 8th).

Just before sunset on Saturday, after six hours of racing, Australian marathon and 24-Hour Solo National Champion Craig Gordon (Bear Naked/Cannondale) is runing head-to-head with Eatough, with two other riders within striking distance.

In the women's event, Eatough's teammate Susan Haywood is finding two riders challenging her attempt at a first World Championships title; Rebecca Rusch (US 24 Hour Solo National Champion) and Monique Sawicki (2004 and 2005 US NORBA Marathon Series Champion) are six and eight minutes off the leader respectively.

Check out live updates from the race as it unfolds at the 24 Hours of Adrenalin World Solo Championships race page.
