2019 UNE 12 HOUR
'but it's really 6+6 hours...'
UNE 12 Hour and WEMBO Asia Pacific 24 Hour Solo MTB Championships Combine!

Yes. You read that correctly friends. The UNE 12 Hour has navigated puberty, pretended to like beer, experimented with an undercut and faked an interest in Coldplay’s songs long enough.

We’re going to University!

After 8 years, the UNE 12 Hours is moving to the University of New England dedicated mountain bike trail. The event will combine with the WEMBO (World Endurance Mountain Bike Organisation) Asia Pacific Solo 24 Hour MTB Championships which was awarded to NEMTB - partly due to the convenience of full electricity, toilet, change-room and purpose built trail all in the middle of town.

​The shenanigans kick off on November 9. The format of the 12 Hour will be a 6 + 6 hour with competitors completing two 6-hour time periods that will have the times combined while the 24 hour competitors will just roll on through the full day.

​So fill up the car with mum’s credit card, grab your Jason Priestley poster, 2 minute noodles and pat your dog goodbye cause schools in!
