24 hours to perfect your bunny hop this Easter!

The ‘MERIDA Hidden Vale 24HR’ is a Solo, Team Relay and Kids mountain biking event starting at 12pm Saturday and finishing at 12pm Sunday. Riders compete for medals, prizes and bragging rights. It’s a weekend filled with camaraderie, Easter activities and fun that you’ll never forget! Spectators are welcome, so if you want to come and get involved in the atmosphere and excitement of the MERIDA HV24HR weekend, feel free to either utilise our free day parking area, or book yourself a camp site, and stay the night to cheer on the riders all the way through to lunch time!

Anyone who can ride a bike can do this!

Decide as a team how many laps each person rides – do 1 or a whole bunch. If 24 hours is a little intimidating but you still want to be a part of the action or looking to introduce someone new to the sport we have a 4hr event that could suit you! Take it on Solo or as a Team.

    2019 Event Course

    A mass start sends you straight up the wide farm road towards the Skills Park (1st lap only). Take a left turn into Aeroplane, another wide trail enabling the field to spread out before descending Rock Bottom. RB is an all time favourite at HVAP with 4 bridge crossings and a series of flowing turns, a true highlight of the 16km course. Once at the bottom shift into the big ring and lean into the turns along the flat cow pad before selecting an easier gear to spin up the Escalator climb.

    Kids Course

    Starting from the top of Snake… Skid through Pit Lane while waving to Mum and Dad. Exit sharp right and downhill – check your brakes and prepare for a tight left-hand turn. Select an easy gear or stand up to grind up under the Bridge and Buckshot. On approaching the top turn left and reach top speed heading back towards Race HQ. Turn right down into Snake and climb a short section of Escalator before registering your lap time when crossing the Timing mats.
