Mountain Bike – 25km

Date

Sun 22nd, Oct

Race Brief

7:30am

Start Time

8:10am

Picture yourself taking on a mix of flowing single track, up-hill challenges and quick downhill runs through the Colquhoun State Forest. A hidden gem of East Gippsland, the Colquhoun is largely untouched and promises some of the best natural landscape in Victoria. Whatever you do, don’t expect to travel a clear line in this forest – at times you still need to create your own path.

Choose from the 25km, 50km or 100km Mountain Bike event, all with a balance of trail styles to provide entertainment and challenges along the way.

Start and finish at Forestech on the edge of the Colquhoun Forest.

Take a lap of East Gippsland’s famed Mountain Bike Park, the Colquhoun. This is a great course for riders seeking the excitement and challenges of a true course without the need for endurance training. Enjoy plenty of roller coaster dips and rises, log jumps, natural stump holes, a & b line jumps, bermed corners, and timber bridges which will grant you a pathway over the forest’s many gullies.

You’ll also find a fuel station on course to keep you hydrated, along with marshalls available to help along the way.
