The Audax Alpine Classic (AAC) ran the Alpine Classic Extreme 250km (ACE 250) ride on Sunday 23 January in extremely good weather conditions. It is the same loop as the 3 Peaks 230km but starts with a warm-up ride from Bright before the first climb and finishes at Bright with a wind down descent off Tawonga, thus adding the extra distance. The time allowed for the event is based on the Internationally recognised Audaxian average speed of 15kph for rides up to 600km e.g. 16hrs 40mins. For this reason there is a 4am start under lights with a stringent light check and requirement to wear a safety vest.
