So the township of Mt Perry is located 100kms west of Bundaberg and Wolca Reserve (the actual venue of the race) is 6 kms north of Mt Perry. There is an area for camping which includes hot showers (ohh ahhh), flushing toilets (nice!), wood BBQs and most importantly, drinking water. There is also tank water for washing your faithful companion (ah that's your bike!!) so don't forget a bucket.
The weekend will be full of challenges. First the race itself, just check out the race profile, then the campers will be subject to early sunsets (due to the reserve being located in a valley), early frost and minimum temperatures ranging from 0 to 5 degrees. So if the race doesn't make to you tough the temperatures will!!!!!! The course is 11kms long with 245metres of ascent.... oh my gosh..... Last year the record for the faster lap was 27 minutes and 58 seconds who's up to beat that, I will certainly congratulate anyone who can beat that!!!!!.
Well good luck to everyone who has entered, and for those for haven't there is always next year... entries have now closed and organisers are not accepting any late entries as the race has reached maximum capacity with 300 riders prepared to take on the challenge of Mt Perry.
