Highland Fling: marathon racing in NSW's southern highlands

The inaugural Highland Fling will take place on November 13, 2005, consisting of 100km of mountain bike marathon racing in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia, starting and finishing in Bundanoon.

Much of the course has now been finalised, and organiser Huw Kingston test rode it on Monday: "Yep, the old body is creaking and groaning but riding the course was a very satisfactory way to celebrate the Queen's Birthday (although us Celts prefer not to doff our caps to the monarch!). I'm really pleased with how the course is shaping up with great variety in the riding - singletrack, open paddocks, native forest, pine forest. In fact the only thing there isn't much of is Roadie Base! (about 2km).
