The famous Mont 24 hour race has been raced and won for another year with the Giant sponsored Rockstar Racing taking out first place overall. The team of four riders including Josh Carlson, Craig Gordon, Troy Glennan and Shaun Lewis riding Anthem X Advanced SL-0’s managed to finish over a lap ahead from second place team GU.
Giant Australia had a full demo fleet of Maestro bikes on hand and racers were allowed to take the bikes out for 2 hour blocks from 12pm to 12am on Saturday and from 5:30am through to the end of the race on Sunday. The Anthem X-1 29er’s proved to be the most popular choice as they fitted the bill perfectly for the long and tough laps through the forest at East Kowen.
The skies opened up for competitors at dawn on Sunday and the course quickly turned from dry, loose and dusty to thick mud. Not to be phased by the conditions riders had a smile on their face as midday brought about the end of the event. Giant staff also gave away t-shirts to some lucky riders that crossed the line on Giant bikes. Giant would like to thank the organisers for a great event and congratulations again to the Rockstar team for taking out the event… see you all again next year!
