However, on Sunday riders can choose to race in the 5km, 20km, 40km or the inaugural 80km race, where they will choose to pit themselves against the weather, the terrain and the clock.

Much of the course travels through the scenic Wollemi National Park providing something to appeal to all levels of fitness and ability.

The 5km ride will be along Sam's Way, the 20km ride will travel down to Tootie Creek.

The 40km ride will go along Mt Lagoon Road and Tootie Creek.

The 80km ride will start at 5am and have a first leg on Ward's Track, and second leg climbing back to Tootie Creek. 

They will travel on Mountain Lagoon Road to Comleroy Road, Gee Arms North Trail and Upper Colo Road.

The NSW State Championships will be held at St Albans on June 8 to 10.
