  • Description

    In its third year the AvantiPlus Hellfire Cup is again based at Kellevie and rides into different areas of the Wielangta State Forest and surrounding areas each day, riding on private land and forestry land. The race course has a myriad of tracks, forest trails, and awesome descents in beautiful landscapes. The event has 7 stages offering a good mix of seriously good single track and great adventure riding. Our philosophy is that the course should be achievable, rewarding and challenging. We have designed it to be achievable and enjoyable for someone new to stage races with a reasonable level of fitness. The event is great leveller with plenty of opportunities for gravity riders and aggressive climbers to let the dog of the leash and we have designed it to have rewards and benefits for all riding styles.

    The event is logistically uncomplicated with one base that competitors start and finish from each day to limit the pack/unpack headaches for riders, support crews and families. It also allows a greater social experience for riders and support crew with the one race village.

    Being able to run the full event in its second year we have been overwhelmed with positive feedback. And our team is already planning and working towards the 2015 Avantiplus Hellfire Cup. Services:
