Record field for Merida 24 Hour

A record field of 450 riders will hit the trail at Kooralbyn in Queensland, Australia on the weekend of April 22-23 when Two Wheel Promotions stages the Merida Weekend Warrior 24 Hour Challenge.

Queensland's (and one of Australia's) biggest 'fair dinkum off-road' cycle events will bring together competitors of every level, from novice to elite, in the ultimate test of off road endurance. More than 70 teams, consisting of two, four or six riders, will take part in the event. The teams will be joined on course by more than thirty individual competitors, who for reasons only they can explain, will go it totally alone, lap after lap, on the demanding Kooralbyn circuit.

"We're delighted with the number of entries, it's great for the sport and we're determined to deliver a top class event," race promoter Bill Van Haren said. "The course has been well prepared and riders can expect a feast of classic single trail, set against the backdrop of Queensland's spectacular scenic rim."
