Entries for the Vaude Highland Fling MTB Marathon on 12 November have now closed with 1,100 riders descending on the Southern Highlands of New South Wales to take on their own challenge through forest, farmland and flinging country.
Around two thirds of the field will take on the Full Fling of 104km with the balance doing the Half Fling and a few teams getting it together in a Flinging Threesome. 40 Elite men and 10 Elite Women will battle it out for the cash, the titles and the glory with the winning time expected to be around 4 hours. A mere 6 individuals will take on the 100Mile(160km) Fling due to the extremely tight required finishing times of no more than 8 hours.
Now in only its second year, The Vaude Highland Fling starts and finishes in the village of Bundanoon on Sunday November 12 with the leg warming 5km Bundanoon Dash taking place on the Saturday evening. Bundanoon is 2 hours south of Sydney.
