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 of your best mates. 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. 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.
THE 24 HOURS OF KOW
The Mont 24 Hour Race is a teams only affair (because teams racing is awesome!). You can race in teams of four or six riders in all male, all female or mixed categories. There are age splits for Junior, Open and riders 40 years of age and above (Honest 40s). Juniors are also permitted to ride in teams of 6, so if you wanted to have your son or daughter on your team, it can happen.
