JetBlack twenty four hours Sydney 2010

Hi guys,

First post and already promoting an event - hope that is ok. I will be in here more often and not just to plug.

Cheers, Martin

Now in its second year the JetBlack twenty four hours Sydney will be back in the Del Rio Resort, Wiseman's Ferry on February 6+7 2010.

Endurance racing in style and luxury: cabins, pool, pub, minigolf.

Everyone who has participated in a 24-hour race before -whether as a Solo Rider or in a Team, will know how challenging it can be to continue to ride those laps day in and out. And you will also know how rewarding that hot shower after a night lap or that cold beer after your last one will be. The proud faces of your mates. And the best moment of all - sun rises after a long night of riding and drives away the dark... you're out on the track, with head or handle bar lights and then you notice the first rays of sun and start to feel the warmth on your skin... if you have not ridden a 24-hour race before, you're in for a treat. We promise!

We are working on a new track section to get up the hill and around the steep firetrail climb. Progress about the trackwork is on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/rockytrailentertainment

Registration is now open and you can find all the details at http://www.rockytrailentertainment.com/

On the same weekend we will also have the 4th and final round of the Rocky Trail MTB Grand Prix. 4 hours of racing with preceding qualifying lap to determine the start order. Perfect for the first time racer if you want to be part of a big MTB race, but just not for 24 hours. Round 3 will be at Mt Stromlo on November 14 2009.

Hi guys,

Here is some track info for the race:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUbUvTmA3Tg

Thanks Tony and Videotime for the video taken at last year's race.

@minute 1.09 we want to make an extra loop that goes out on a firetrail next to the river and back on singletrail parallel to it.

@2.22 here we will go straight onto the new trail. We will be out there again tomorrow morning to build and I will put some pics up on our facebook page

@4.11 or thereabouts we will rejoin the original track

@5.10 from here the downhill fun starts - great ride after the track has been so nicely ridden in last year. I may be biased but the track along the creek is the best MTB track I have ever ridden.

@7.43 the trail will still go around the resort and past the cabins but will be slightly different to last year so that there will be less crossings of roads.

@9.26 BMX track will be included again this year.

This video is sped up so if anyone does a sub 10 min laptime we will drugtest for every substance known to man. From memory the fastest lap times last year were around 25 minutes. Track length will be around 8-8.5 km but overtaking will be very easy on about 70% of the track as it is quite wide.

It is on private property so unfortunately you can't go and test ride it.

The track for 2010

Different from what we had originally planned but we think that it is the best way to conquer the hill and still enjoy all the fun downhill parts.
