The Night Performance
We’re running a 20km night performance for those who love it under the stars. Performance starts at 5-30pm on Saturday so you’ll have plenty of time to relax afterwards and prepare for the following day. Performance starts and finishes at the Big Top event centre in Wingello State Forest
The Night Performance is NOT COMPULSORY
The Matinee Performance
The Matinee kicks off at 10am on the Sunday. The 3 Rings pass through the Big Top event centre located at the Wingello Forest Trailhead. The loops will be completed in the order below:
6km of fast firetrail will separate the speedsters from the rose sniffers and allows riders to find their legs. There won’t be a lot of granny gear on the Granny Gear Ring.
Red Ring is approx 27km long. It traverses several gullies and includes one or two climbs (including the infamous “The Wall”!) and 15km of sweet, flowing singletrack. All this in beautiful native forest. 3 Ring Circus performers will want to go hard here – it's hard not to ride with a big grin on the face. However enthusiasm will be tempered by the knowledge that still to come is……….
Back to the Big Top and a last chance to grab some food and drink and some encouragement from the crowd. The 19km Yellow Ring will test legs and lungs as it takes performers through some deep gullies and steady climbs. The bonus is that you’ll head through some mixed forests and open farmland on firetrails and dirt roads, with the end of the performance ever closer. A fast finish back to the Big Top and no requirement for an encore. The 3 Ring Circus is over.
At the Evening Performance each rider will pass through a central Transition Area at completion of each lap. On the Sunday Matinee performance when you complete each Ring, performers will pass through a central Transition Area which will time each Ring and the total time for the performance. Timing will involve transponders.
