Jason English - Mr. Nice Guy, dad, and multiple World Champion

It is fitting that the second rider profile in the lead-up to the Stevens Bikes Husky100 is non-other than Jason English.  Over the weekend, Jason won his 2nd National Title in 3 weeks, adding the National Marathon Champion title to his 24-hour Solo National title.

He is also the reigning 24-hour Solo World Champion, a title that he has held since 2009.

James Downing - In search of the perfect race

James Downing is no stranger to the Stevens Bikes Husky100.  On the 29th of June, James will line up for his 3rd consecutive Husky, knowing full well that he has been consistently bridging the gap between himself and the race leader.

In 2011, James came 7th, just 14 minutes behind race winner Matthew Fleming.  In 2012, albeit slipping to 9th place in a much stronger field, James had the gap down to just 8 minutes.  Can this cycle of improvement see James contesting the sprint for line honours.  Only time will tell, but in the meantime, James is a man on a mission to try to race "the perfect race".

Husky100 Entries open

The Stevens Bikes Husky100 Mountain Bike Marathon rumbles into its 4th year with a host of changes to build on the success of this increasingly popular endurance ride.

The sublime single-track and achievable course profile see a varied mix of young and not-so-young, male and female riders from complete beginners to seasoned veterans travelling to the stunning Jervis Bay region each June in order to test themselves on the coastal trails of ‘The Husky’.

Amongst some of the changes to the event for 2013 are a completely revamped 100km and 50km course, and the introduction of a beginner and youngster friendly 15km option.  All of this adds up to even more flowy single-track in the Husky100 than ever before.

The Husky100 has been won by some of Australia’s biggest names in Mountain Biking with Jason English, Matt Fleming, Shaun Lewis and Jenny Fay sharing in the spoils from previous years.  Three time 24-hour Solo Mountain Biking World Champion Jason English says of the course “Four F-words come to mind straight away – Fast, Fun, Flowy and Flat.  Seriously the course is suited to the beginner as there are no big hills or overly technical sections, while it also rips the leg off the faster riders trying to do a sub four hour race as there is no reprieve from pedalling on the course.  It’s consistent effort all the time”.

Were there any other highlights for you at the Husky100 Jason? 

“The Feed Stations are awesome.  The amount of lollies, bananas and Shotz electrolyte is ridiculous.  No, wait!  The icecream and fruit salad at the finish line was what stood out for me.  I may not have won the race last year, but I was the first one to the fruit salad and icecream so, in my mind, I was a winner!”

Course Director and iAdventure owner Matt Koerber added “We really enjoy seeing the incredible spread of age and ability that is attracted by the Husky100’s festival atmosphere and achievable course.  The participants coming along with their families and just having a go are what really makes the Husky100 special to us, as that is what the sport of Mountain Biking is all about – participating and having a go.  In fact I believe we have created the perfect first up event for anyone looking to tackle their first long distance Mountain Bike race.

Entries to this years “Husky”, scheduled for the 29th of June, go on sale at 10am on Wednesday the 23rd of January.  Entries are expecting to sell quickly so get your entry in early and start your preparations to ride “The Husky”.  More information can be found at the event website – www.husky100.com.au.
