The Highland Fling Mountain Bike Marathon sold out just five hours after registration opened on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 am. Wild Horizons, the organizers, said that once all 1,500 places were booked, another 2,000 people tried to register, showing an unprecdented demand for an Australian event.

"When we tried again a week later, the server was better prepared but we were still taken aback by the speed the event sold out. It certainly shows the regard in which the event is held and the growing interest in cycling in general. We're sorry for those who did not get in this time, particularly those who had already booked flights, accommodation etc for the weekend. As always the Bundanoon community looks forward to welcoming the mountain bike community to town for the weekend."
