Dirt Sweat & Gears Announces new 12 hour mountain bike race in the southern US. Mountain bikers will race for a US$10,000 cash purse in Fayetteville, Tennessee, next April 28, 2007. The largest purse ever seen on the 12 hour race circuit is expected to draw top athletes. Winners of the male and female solo category will take home US$1500 each. "These riders work hard and deserve to reap the benefits of their dedication to the sport," says Clay Higgins, Race Director for Dirt Sweat & Gears. Racers will travel a ten mile course on the little-known 260 acre private Cotton Mill Preserve.
