A team of NEMTB, guided by our illustrious Publications Officer, Steve Chappo Chapman, have managed to secure all the major sponsors for the 2012 UNE 12 Hours In The Piney. As you may have already guessed the University of New England (UNE) has come on board as the Diamond Sponsor (naming rights) and Armidale Dumaresq Council as the Platinum Sponsor (media). Other cash sponsors are Hutchinson and Harlow, Jock Bullen’s Armidale Bicycle Centre and Newcastle Permanent. Our first product sponsor on board is Skirt Sports, watch this space for more on this new comer to Australia.  Further product sponsors will join us to hold a high altitude 12 hour enduro.

NEMTB would like to thank all these partners who have made it possible to hold this event. So get out there and thank these businesses. If you’re looking for information click on their logos on the NEMTB home page.

Also check out the half page ad that will appear in the Mountain Biking Australia magazine in the first edition next year.

So all you solo riders start training or build yourself a team of two or four.

Watch for more details on the UNE 12 Hours In The Piney on the dedicated race page which will be populated in December.
