Capital punishment in Canberra

Mountain bikers visiting Canberra will no longer have to choose whether to race at Mt. Stromlo, Sparrow Hill, Bruce Ridge or Majura Pines. Instead, they will have the chance to take in all of them on a single day ... as part of the Capital Punishment race on Saturday, May 30.

The 100km enduro race course is being designed by Tom Landon-Smith. It will start at Sparrow Hill where, meandering on singletrack through the pine forest, before heading to Kowen Forest, Majura and Bruce Ridge. Then, it's on to Black Mountain and the finish with a bang at Mt Stromlo.
