The 24-Hours of Adrenaline World Championships will move to a new location for 2010. It will leave North America for the first time and for Australia. This will provide racers in the southern hemisphere with the opportunity to compete at world level without the travel.

Organizers made the announcement at the solo riders' pre-race briefing during this weekend's running of the 2009 edition of the championships.

The event has previously been held in California in the USA and in Alberta, Canada.  It is popular internationally, especially among racers from Australia, including Jason English who won the 2009 edition of the men's race on Sunday.
