  • Format

    52km and 39km MTB race

  • Description

    Starting in Livingstonia Park riders travel out of Taieri Mouth on the sealed road before encountering gravel roads with views of the Otago coastline. Then  all riders head up Taieri Beach Rd before diverting off for a 3.5km sweeping downhill section to Akatore Creek with stunning views. This leads to the Akatore Forest separating on to the 39km Classic course and 52km Skyline course and the chance to access rarely used forestry tracks of gravel, grass and mud.

    Interspersed with climbing and rapid descents admire the views of the Otago Coast, Lake Waihola and Taieri Plains. Upon leaving the forest travel back via Taieri Beach Rd before the experience of the fantastic 6km downhill decent that includes cross country farmland, forestry track, native bush, wetlands and mud tracks before a final sprint to the finish line back at Livingstonia Park.
