Welcome to the second James Williamson Enduro Challenge, to be held on Sunday March 11th 2012.
Following the success of the inaugural event, the organisers were overwhelmed by riders’ positive comments and enthusiasm for this event. With this in mind, we are keeping the format of the race more or less the same as 2011, with a few minor changes to be introduced, to keep the trails flowing, and the riders pumped!
The James Williamson Enduro Challenge is a joint initiative of Southern Highlands Cycling Club (SHCC) and Canberra Off-Road Cyclists (CORC), held each year in March, in memory of James Williamson, World and Australian Champion Enduro mountain biker. James passed away on March 23rd 2010 while participating in the Cape Epic Mountain Bike Race in South Africa. James came from the Southern Highlands of NSW before moving to Canberra, and knew the trails of both areas well. James was renowned for his capacity to challenge himself and for his passion for mountain biking; this race helps keep his spirit alive.
The James Williamson Enduro Challenge is a non-profit event, with all proceeds going to the James Williamson Fund. Proceeds will be used in a range of ways to develop young riders and promote the sport of mountain biking. http://jameswilliamson.com.au/fund
