MORE than 200 riders lined up for the Shimano Mountain Bike Grand Prix endurance race at Singleton on Saturday.
Round four of the popular series not only featured 24-hour solo world champion Jason English, but also a strong local contingent, led by the Soft Cogs.
And, the circuit, on the corner of Maison Dieu Road and Dights Crossing Road, provides enough challenges for those participants contesting the 4-hour and 7-hour divisions.
Promoter Martin Wisata said the race was one of Rocky Trail Entertainment’s flagship events.
“It’s always a good round at Singleton,” he explained.
“The riders enjoy coming here – and we have them from all over NSW and the ACT.
“They’re also vying for points [in the series].
“It’s a fast course; and a super accessible track.
“To be honest, it’s one of my favourite event centres – you can see everything.”
