Sounds like an interesting series.

Would you travel the 3+ hours for this when there's already the Chocfoot and Rocky Trail series?

How come it says abc news 2013? Also, did you notice the name of the reporter

Pete B's picture

I did notice the 2013 reference but the date at the top is todays.
What's wrong with the reporters name?

was from 2013. It's probably not such a big story to warrant a whole new photograph to depict what a mountain bike looks like....

What interests me is the amount of sponsorship. $35.00, $3,500.00 or $35,000.00? Hard to tell, for me, from the article.

Yeah I thought the 35,00 was a bit weirded. Re the name, Trail reporting on a mtb story

Jim Trail used to be on JJJ. I remember him talking about mtbing a few times on the radio.

He used to report for Cycling central also.
He's a keen Mtb'er.

$35,000 I think, is the amount being talked about.

What I find interesting about the series is that the events are all individual and have different formats and lengths. One is a 12 hour, I think one is a 3 hour.

Most of the rounds have been running independently for a few years already.

Don't expect flat at the Ginja Ninja 250 in Orange Eye-wink

Here's some random guy's strava trace of 2013's track:

Tough but doable.
