Like a young student following their successful sibling throughout high school, the inaugural Port to Port MTB Stage Race has a lot to live up to. Port to Port’s sister event, the Cape to Cape MTB has given many mountain bikers the experience of a lifetime in the southern corner of West Oz.
Now it’s the east coast’s time, the same crew will bring us four days of racing, from Port Stephens, to the Port of Newcastle, NSW in May 2014. From the rolling sandy trails around Nelson Bay, out to the rugged mountain ranges above the Hunter Valley and the fast run into Newcastle, it’s sure to be a great ride. And a real adventure, exactly what we love about stage racing.
In its inaugural year, Flow journeys up to the region to find out exactly what the race planned on taking in, the trails, the region the scenes and off the bike activities.
What are our thoughts? It’s a challenge, in a beautiful setting.
So, play the video and soak in the images as we paint the picture of how this event will take you through some very fine country, this May. See you there.
