What is The Mont 24 Hour Race?
The MONT 24 Hour Race is our classic festival of MTB and the best way to spend a weekend of bike loving fun with a few thousand mates. It is also one of the largest events in Australia. If railing East Kowen’s fabulous trails right through the night with your friends sounds appealing, be sure to register a team of four or six riders (we’re teams only here). Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned XC racer, the Mont 24 is one of those bucket list events. At its heart the MONT is a laid back event, so if you don’t take your performances too seriously, rest assured you won’t be alone. Ride the Kow in 2016!
The Mont 24 is done and dusted for 2016.
Well, that went extremely well. — what a fantastic weekend we had!
Our event wrap is HERE, and the 50,000 photos shot by AURORA Images will be on your screens in no time at all. I trust you enjoyed our little romp in the woods. See you next event.
2017 Dates Announced: April 1-2 2017
Is this your first Mont 24? Not sure what to expect?
Watch the highlights videos.
Riders come to the MONT;
- for a chance at podium (or bragging rights back at the tent);
- to hang out with their mates and meet people who ride;
- to check out new season bikes, gadgets and gear; and
- to rail some of the best single track around.
The home of the Mont 24 is East Kowen Forest, Canberra. East Kowen’s network of flowing trails have been built from scratch especially for the Mont by our team of dedicated trail builders and trail volunteers. Through their efforts, East Kowen has become one of the most popular riding destinations in the region. In no particular order we acknowledge
- the Kowalski Brothers Trailworks,
- the one man trail building legend that is Paul Cole, and
- The Kowalski Trail Crew (volunteers who have discovered the secret pleasure of trail building)
The Mont can mean many things to many people, so we’ve drawn together many of our experiences to give you an insight into what the Mont 24 MTB Hour Race means to us. There’s plenty, so we’ve put them here.
