Dusk Till Dawn 12 Hour Race.

The 2009 Alcoa Dusk till Dawn 12hour MTB Challenge was run and done this past weekend. Wembley Cycles had two teams running and several more of our regular customers also organised teams. It was a brilliantly run event and throughout the night and into the morning there was many happy mountain bikers out on course. The Wembley Cycles Average Joes (John Carney, Steve Courtice and Dan O'Kane) came second in the three man category, right behind the overall winners, the Trailblazers. In the overall standings the Average Joes came third after a four man team managed to sneak in an extra half lap over us, oh to have fresh legs like those guys did! Still, as the best placed corporate team, the Average Joes took home the inaugural Avanti Corporate Challenge Trophy.

As summer heats up it is an awesome time to do some night riding after work. We're in the process of creating a regular Wednesday night ride out at Mt Gungin. Give the shop a call if you're interested in coming along.
