About The Willo event

Junior MTB

The Willo Marathon is a one day event celebrating the life of mountain bike champion James Williamson, who died in his sleep from an undiagnosed heart condition in March 2010 whilst competing in an international MTB stage race.

This is a marathon race unlike any other. Every race participant is instantly taken by the relaxed and friendly nature of the race, which in fact does reflect on James and the camaraderie that mountain biking brings for all.

James Williamson

About James ‘Willo’ Williamson

James was 26 years old and will always be remembered as a top-level XCO and XCM rider. He was passionate about the sport in every way, as well as being an Australian and World 24 hour champion. Founded by Meg Patey, Willo’s aunt and supported by his best friends and riding mates, the Willo race is now managed by Rocky Trail Entertainment under Meg’s patronage.

The Willo has established itself as one of the top mountain bike marathons on the Australian cycling racing calendars and it has become an annual reminder to all riders of the joys of mountain biking as well as the impact James had on the sport.
