Route Description

  • 0.0km – 1.5km – 3,2
    The first kilometre is on some well used single track and then quad trail. At the 1.5 km mark we hit the logging road and really go up.
  • 1.5km – 2.5km – 2,4
    Oh ya it’s up!
  • 2.5km – 5.0km – 3,3
    And now we hit the single track and half —yes it’s a bit wider than a true single track— and we head down it’s nice and flowy, not too technical on the whole. It’s just so much fun coming down, worth the pain going up.
  • 5.0km – to the end – 3,2
    You get about 300m under the power lines then it’s all single track to the finish.
