Event description

Description

Australia’s toughest 24-hour rail trail ultra endurance cycling event.

From 10.00 pm on Friday night, this event will run all night and through the following day.

Starting in Esk in Somerset, the 322 km course is all off-road and traffic free, just riding through South East Queensland’s big country. Ride from Esk to Wulkuraka Station in Ipswich, then turn around and ride the full length of the BVRT to Yarraman, then turn around and ride back to Esk .

This event will be the first BVRT Ultra Extreme 322 km bike race on the fully completed rail trail, including the great new section from Toogoolawah to Moore.

Just completing the course is a major achievement, but if you can get anywhere under 20 hours, you're a super human (current record is 18 hours and 11 minutes)

This is 24-hour gravel racing for a total distance of 322 km with a net height gain of 375 metres on a fairly rough track, with a number of challenges along the way.

First prize: Wekeend holiday for 2 at Wikirri B&B Resort in Blackbutt

Second prize: A customised BVRT E2E cycling shirt designed by Jakazni with your name on it.

Third prize: Lunch for two at Nash Cafe in Esk (Voucher)

Additional award categories
Fastest rider under 25 (male and female)
Best sportsperson award (participant nominated)
Youngest cyclist to complete the course in under 20-hours
Oldest cyclist to complete the course in under 20-hours
Last person to complete the course in under 24-hours

Equal prizes for men and women.
