Capricorn Helicopter Rescue 2 Hour Team Challenge

2020 Rocky MTB 2 Hour Team Challenge in support of Capricorn Helicopter Rescue

Event: Rocky MTB 2 Hour Day/Night Team Challenge

2020 is nearly done, but here is a last chance for some team racing at Seeonee Park and a chance to support a great cause.

Capricorn Helicopter Rescue provide a vital service to CQ and maybe, just maybe, you as a mountain biker may require their services one day. Let’s hope not!

In the meantime we will be donating $10 from each race entry to this vital service and have some fun racing with your mates. This is a team race with a twist. Both team mates will be on course at the same time and must cross the start/finish no more than a bike length apart.
