The 3 Ring Circus is coming to town………Ride away to join it!
Saturday 27th - The Night Performance, 20km under the stars
Sunday 28th - The Matinee Performance, 50km under the sun
As in 2012, as well as running the usual 50km Sunday Matinee Performance, we’re putting on a 20km Night Performance on Saturday evening. It is not compulsory – you can book a Night Performance and a Matinee or just do the Matinee. For those who do both we’ll aggregate the results for both stages in addition to individual results for both performances.
The Night Performance – Saturday 27th, 5-30pm – 3 Rings under the stars totalling approx 20km.
The Matinee Performance – Sunday 28th, 10am – As usual the 3 Ring Circus is an MTB enduro race where solo performers or relay teams of two or three will ride a 50km circuit taking in three loops of the MTB trails in Wingello State Forest – Blue (approx 6km), Red (approx 27km), and Yellow (approx. 19km).
The 3 Ring Circus offers something for everyone – singletrack for the experienced, climbs for the fit, and scenic forest roads for the novice. Perform solo and challenge yourself over 50km or do it as a relay team and enjoy a great day out on the beautiful Wingello trails. Whether you ride the matinee only or do a little nocturnal racing as well, come join the fun!
The Kids Circus - Saturday 27th, 4.00pm - We realized that for an event with such a great family vibe and circus performances, we needed to introduce a performance for the kids. So on Saturday afternoon at 4pm we will be running a race for all the kids 12 years old and younger. The Kids Circus will be split into age groups. So prime the little ‘uns and bring them to the Circus! Entry is free of course.
