Red Zone 6

11km Circuit.

Red Zone 6 Hour Mountain Bike Challenge will be staged in the Burwood Red Zone on Sunday 11th February 2018.

This amazing event will see one of the first events staged in the Red Zone and what a magnificent event this will be. 6 Hours of mountain bike riding around the Burwood Subdivision, taking in the footpaths, tracks and roads.

The footpaths have been made into a perfect mountain bike track from the earthquakes, liquefaction and natural growth on the berms of the roads.

As a kid you loved riding on the footpaths and now you’re allowed to do it and go as fast as you possibly can. Short sharp sprints in and out of cul-de-sacs, fast corners in and around the subdivision.

Experience where nature is taking back the land to its original era and where families had beautiful gardens and plantings now a great mountain bike track. Look out for the odd surprise in the route as well.

The 11km circuit will be a challenge for everyone and fast. Teams will be made up of minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5. Individual is available for those looking to do it all by themselves.

This is relay style event with the eventual winner being the rider or team of riders that does the most laps.

The route will be throughout the Burwood Red Zone subdivision, with the Race Village and hub being Donnell Sports Park. This will be a hive of activity with team tent sites and, food vendors music and continual movement throughout the day.

You will be able to set up the day before the event and be all set in the morning for a 10am start.

A full race brief will be held at Donnell Park at 9:45am and the race will start right on 10am. The start will be at the intersection of Stour Drive and Priory Close. The ride will take in the roads, footpaths and tracks throughout the subdivision and there will be a few surprises throughout the route.

While this will be a fast ride, bike handling will play a big part in it and considering no one will know the exact route until race day, it will make for some good riding.

This will be an amazing event for everyone to see the Red Zone and great to be able to utilise it in this form.

Prize giving will be approximately 15 minutes after the last rider has finished.
Prize giving will be in Donnell Sports Park. You must be present to receive spot and category prices.
