Race organisers Bright Orange Events have announced the KHS Working Week Series for 2007, with KHS Bicycles assuming the naming rights mantle for the first time. The series, running since 2004, is comprised of 5 '8-Hour Endurance Mountain Bike Races' spread throughout the year, each event attracting an average of over 400 competitors.
Competitors range from 9 to almost 90 in age, and come from all over the East Coast of Australia to major mountain bike venues including Lithgow, Southern Highlands, Newcastle, Sydney and Canberra. Riders can expect to see some innovations as a result of this partnership, including one additional race in 2007 and the chance to win, at each and every round of the series, one KHS Dual Suspension Frame and one "$1000 KHS Bicycles Cheque".
Entries open for the KHS Working Week Series in early January, and the first event is in Lithgow on February 4, 2007.
