Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) awarded Brisbane-based Two Wheel promotions the opportunity to host the 2007 MTB Australian Marathon Championships on Sunday, July 1. The championship race will be the Maxxis Coffs Mountain Marathon. The race will happen at a new venue, Pine Creek Forest, in Bonville, 15 minutes south of Coffs Harbour.
95% of the course will be off-road with lots of flowing singletrack and fire trails. 500 racers will be allowed entry into the main event, although others will be allowed to enter an associated shorter marathon and recreational ride. Registration opens April 1.
