Sponsors marquees will be set up around the event centre for the entire weekend. The sponsors are the backbone of any great event. Not only does it prove that they are passionate about their chosen industry, it also proves that they believe in their product and want to see it being used. Please support all event sponsors as they are truly what make these events possible.
Schedule is subject to change. Final schedule will be released in the Event Program on the 3rd of December.
Bike mechanics from Spearman Cycles in Wollongong will be in attendance at the Event Centre throughout the event, and on-course during the event for emergency repairs.
The sub-branches of the RSL club will have a BBQ working around the clock within the event centre to cater to all of your needs. The RSL club kitchen will be in operation during standard operating hours, and the bar will be open for all of your refreshment requirements.
On event day, Fired Up Pizza will be cooking up a frenzy in their pizza oven, with a fantastic range of pizzas to choose from.
Dash Coffee will be in attendance for the duration of the event. Please be kind to them on Sunday morning, as over 1000 riders and spectators trying to get their caffeine fix from the one place could turn very ugly.

The Husky20 is a participation ride for those riders aged 7 and up. Riders under the age of 11 must have a designated parent or guardian also registered for the Husky20, and riding with them for the entirety of the event. The Husky20 is designed as a participation ride and therefore should not be ridden by those intending to "race" the event. Husky20 riders will be given their own number plates so that they can feel a part of the days action. There will be no age categories - everyone will be a winner in the Husky20!
In 2014, there will be four feed-stations situated on the course at approximately the 20km, 40km , 60km and 80km marks (one feed-station at the 25km mark for those doing the 50km course). You will be able to refill water bottles and bladders with water, or why not drop a Shotz Hydration tablet?
There will be some other goodies available including bananas and lollies for those feeling a little the worse for wear. We strongly encourage all riders, however, to be self-sufficient with their race nutrition, as there is no guarantee that there will be any goodies left by the time you arrive.
St. Johns Ambulance service will be in attendance to see to any niggles, scrapes or scratches that you may have before, during or after the event.
We also have 2 mobile paramedics roaming the course, acting as a first point of contact in the case of a more serious injury or ailment that may occur.
We strongly advise riders to carry a mobile phone throughout the event in your backpack or jersey pocket, incase you happen upon a serious injury. Course marshals will also be on course at frequent intervals, and have the ability to contact first-aid or an ambulance in an emergency.
