Giant Odyssey Mountain Bike 2016

February 20

THE ODYSSEY IN A SNAPSHOT

DATE: Saturday 20th February 2016 – NEW DATE!
LOCATION: Forrest (Great Otway National Park), South-West Victoria
RACE FORMATS:
               – Giant Odyssey 100km
– Giant Shorty 50km
               – NEW Giant Rookie ~25km
NEW Giant Pioneer 10km
               – NEW Giant Grommets fun riding for (little) kids

By popular vote (in the post event competitors’ survey) the format of the 2016 Giant Odyssey will be the same as 2015 and earlier years with 100km, 50km and 15km events starting and finishing in Forrest.

But NEW for 2016 will be the medium distance Giant Rookie ~25km event – a race that’s custom designed for MTB newcomers, keen kids and those not quite up to 50km. Other evolutions mean that the Giant Pioneer will be shortened from 15km to 10km to be even more friendly for kids and we’ll include a new Grommets Ride for little kids on balance bikes around the Forrest Footy Ground.

WHAT IS A GIANT ODYSSEY?

 

Now in its 9th year, the Giant Odyssey is Australia’s most respected mountain bike marathon thanks to the quantity of epic single track, the lung busting hills and blitzing descents, the electrifying race atmosphere and sense of satisfaction you get when you finish in the middle of the massive Forrest Festival.

Quite simply – this is a must do event.

So commit to the challenge, dare your mates to join you, and get on board (your bike) for one Australia’s pinnacle mountain bike events on some of the best trails the country has to offer.
