KONA Dirty Weekend
Adelaide's only 24 hour MTB Race
Kona Rider Andrew Bell writes in his review of the 2012 Kona Dirty Weekend that "the trails make this event a must do for every mountain biker in Oz. I would describe them a mix of Majura Pines on steroids and some of Mt Stromlo's best bits put into a fun flowing 12km of smiles." You can read his full review here.

But while most mountain bike events are all about your sprint skills and being the first across the line, Bike SA'S Kona Dirty Weekend mountain bike challenge is designed to have you, your support crew and spectators enjoying yourselves as you put your stubbornness to the test and grind out lap after lap, beyond what you thought you could achieve.
The 2014 Kona Dirty Weekend will showcase some great new track that has been added to the Cudlee Creek Forest trail network over the last 12 months. It is an evolution of last year's track, just over 10km long, and will include parts of the new Core Loop track.
"Amazing atmosphere, loved the night laps and the lights of adelaide and the serenity of some sections of trail contrasting with the cool musical beats of the village. I may have over administered slightly on the red bull but it was great while I was riding. It would have been great if their were more younger folk riding. The atmosphere was so much fun and that would have made it even better for us." Phoebe, 16
