2013 KONA Dirty Weekend
"The trails make this event a must do for every mountain biker in Oz."
In May 2012 the Kona Dirty Weekend, South Australia's only 24Hr Race,
took place for the fourth time. The Dirty Weekend offered various
categories and race options (12Hr and 6Hr) and once again the South Australian Mountain Biking Association (SAMBA) was involved in building you a wickedly fun and challenging track... In May 2013 it's time again for the Kona Dirty Weekend
| Where: CUDLEE CREEK FOREST, NEAR ADELAIDE|
When: 4-5 May 2013
What: 24Hr or 12Hr or Roof Rack City 6Hr MOUNTAIN BIKE CHALLENGE
Difficulty: 10km loop of medium to hard singletrack, some technical bits, lots of fun!
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 themselves as you put your stubbornness to the test and grind out lap after lap, beyond what you thought you could achieve.
In 2011 and 2012, Bike SA welcomed the involvement of the newly formed South Australian Mountain Biking Association (SAMBA), and they'll be back again as the track gurus for the 2013 Kona Dirty Weekend.
"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
