What is the PUSHYS ROSEWHITE 12 HOUR ?
The PUSHYS ROSEWHITE 12 HOUR event is an off road challenge or endurance mountain bike race which can be entered solo or in a team of 2,3,4 or 6 people (same or mixed sex). The PUSHYS ROSEWHITE 12 HOUR event is a race in which the competitor/s with the most laps after 12 hours of racing wins. The competition is not only against the other teams and individuals but against the terrain, the clock and yourself. It's more than just an event though, it's a total mountain bike festival experience with the emphasis on having fun - there's onsite bush camping, great food available, a massage tent, entertainment and licensed bar. Product prizes for solo riders and teams and crazy random spot prizes will be awarded. New for 2014 is the inclusion of the Pushys Rosewhite 6 Hour event for those not up to the challenge of a 12 hour race.

The Mountain Bike Course
The PUSHYS ROSEWHITE 12 HOUR (and 6 HOUR) course is a 13km loop which is a mix of fun flowing singletrack and fire trails. The course should be achievable by almost all fairly competent mountain bike riders with a reasonable level of fitness. The course itself is achievable by all except for the complete novice or inexperienced mountain bike rider. Each lap of the course will take an average of 1 hour.
Teams can show up as early as Friday May 16 after 2pm, with friends and family. This is an opportunity to prepare yourselves, and your camp/pit area, well in advance of the 9.00am official start time on Saturday. The course will also be open to pre-ride from 2pm until sunset on the Friday.
