Hi Scott Riders,
Over the last few weeks we have been working with our sponsors to look at the future of the Scott 24 Hour. Entries to date have been well below previous years and this has meant we've had to do some serious thinking about where the event is going. We're happy to say that the Scott will not be cancelled, but for 2014 we're taking the Scott back to its roots where it was smaller, more personal and club oriented.
The biggest difference for you, the participants will be the absence of the 'marquee city' on the crit track and the other extensive infrastructure around the event centre, fear not, there will still be food and coffee. And yes, we'll even furnish a TV with the AFL Grand Final, even if Collingwood are playing! The event itself will still hold the challenge of riding for a solid 24 hours, by yourself or with your mates, at its heart.
Our sponsors Scott
, Jet Black
and Eastlake Football Club
have all elected to continue their support for the event. The trails and facilities at Stromlo are still at your pleasure. This year's Scott will be smaller than most before, but that doesn't mean the Scott's 16th birthday will be any less fun and you're all invited!
are still open, so if you can make it we look forward to seeing you at the end if September!
