This weekend will be a long weekend for a lot of people (Sneaking in a cheeky leave day before Australia Day) but for some making the journey to Baerami and the wonderful James Estate Winery, it will involve sampling a little bit of the fine local vino, hooking up with some like minded people, talking all things MTB and of course, riding bikes like they stole them!

The JetBlack 24hr race will land on the vineyards of James Estate, after previously being postponed from late last year due to a new arrival in the Rockytrail family.. who will also be making his first 24hr appearance!

Sponsored by our race teams major sponsor, JetBlack, This annual event always attracts a good gathering of riders and their crew from north and south of the State (and beyond!), and is sure to put some smiles on dials and re-acquaint some riders with a similar course to that of the 12hr event held in the chilly months of last year

Our very own JetBlack Racing team will be represented by a solid group of riders:

Kevlar giving the 24hr solo single speed another fair crack of the whip after coming off the back of a good result at the Scott 24hr Nationals late last year.

Young Scott Reynolds will be going hard in the 6 + 6hr solo elites and going up against top Canadian racer, Corey Wallace.

Jason Hewitt will be in the mix there also, having stepped up his training in the last few months, hoping to show the young-uns how it’s done.

Peter Rohr, Dalene Pretorious and team new comer Erica Hansch topping off the Solo efforts in the 6 + 6 option.

Tom Morwood and Travis Moore will be a team to watch in the 6 + 6 Elite pairs, with the pairing of David Leckie & Ian Charles capping off the 6 + 6 pairs Category and team veterans Ron Gorbould/Peter Robinson teaming up with new comer Steve Burman to give the Masters team of 3 a crack.

Check out the Rockytrail Entertainment page for further details:

Updates may be tricky during the event due to signal strength up in the lovely hills of Baerami, but we’ll do out best! A post race update will be posted when we get back to the ‘burbs of Sydney!

Words by Elton Judd & George Greig
Once a year the sleepy Southern Highlands town of Bundanoon doubles its numbers when the Highland Fling, now in its 11th year comes to town.  With a festival atmosphere, the Judd family were more than happy to come back for a second time with some friends, some who have ridden in several editions as well as a newcomer riding …

I have only ever raced 2 crits a few years ago and with a spectacular crash on the 2nd one vowed never return to road racing. I always say if I crash on the MTB it …
