Good Bastard Productions™ are back with a new and improved Mt. Alfred Challenge for 2009. We are excited to again be hosting this years event at the Paradise Trust.

The Paradise Trust was established by the late David Miller in 1998 to preserve Paradise for everyone to visit, in perpetuity. The Paradise Trust is committed to preserving and enhancing the unique features of Paradise for the enjoyment of all visitors, especially people with disabilities and children. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to start, finish, and hang out in such a great spot. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Paradise Trust. See below for entry details.

The Scoop
Race Date:
28th March 2009
10am - Race Starts 12 Noon
30km to 35km Mountain Bike Race

Cruiser – A recreational division, opting out of the climb up the side of Mt. Alfred, more likely to carry a snickers or cream bun in your pack than a leppin. (KJ’s mates) 30km.
Keen – for those sporty lifestylers that want to give it a good nudge. 35km.
Machine – For those prepared to suffer, in fact looking forward to it. (Gordy’s mates) 35km.
This year we will be adding the “Legends” age group for those of you who have made it to 40 and are still going hard, or at least still going.

Entry Fee:
This is an all weather event, If you were there last year, you will know the event will take place Rain or Shine, Sleet or Snow. Although according to Gordy, “the ol’ Hedgehog in the garden has a pretty thin coat this summer, so we should be sweet as” Optimists should bring sunblock……and a parka.

How to Enter
Click HERE to go to the entry form page then, Print it, Fill it out, and post it with a check to PO BOX 76 Glenorchy.
Don’t wait, entries are limited.

The Course
We have once again secured exclusive access to one of the most varied and scenic courses you will ever push a pedal over. Permission to ride on the course is for race day only. Don’t Blow it!

The Start/Finish will be based in Paradise, 20km past Glenorchy. After a twist at the start of the race, the course will circumnavigate Mt. Alfred similar (but not quite the same) as last year.

One major improvement this year will be good shelter at race base, a welcome relief for those of you that huddled behind a van to escape the freezing sideways rain last year.
