the biggest human powered vehicle race in the world!

This weekend, September 21-22, Murray Bridge will once again play host to the Australia’s premier HPV race, the 24hr Australian International Pedal Prix!

In what will be the 34th running of the prestigious event, the Rural City of Murray Bridge will be inundated with teams, riders and supporters as over 30,000 people descend onto the picturesque riverside location.

The race will be the final Round of the 2019 UniSA Australian HPV Super Series and will see competition not just for event glory, but series success across many different categories.

Run over 24 hours, from midday Saturday to midday Sunday, the race is held on the challenging 1.7 km Sturt Reserve circuit situated on the banks of the Murray River and proudly supported by the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

Over 200 teams, 3,000 competitors and thousands of spectators make Sturt Reserve their home for 3 days in September. 40 Houseboat moorings immediately adjacent to the track provide onsite accommodation with ample space inside the fully fenced reserve for thousands more to set up camp.
