" A little jog to warm up the legs and spread the field before the fast and furious MTB with diverse riding terrain, ranging from rainforest, flowing single trail, fast open beach and even a little bit of classic riding in the mountain bike park. "

Jarad Kohlar - COURSE DIRECTOR

STAGE 4 - MOUNTAIN BIKE

World Heritage Rainforest wraps around this stage from Mission Beach for a beautiful ride over a number of freshwater creek bridges through Djiru National Park. A fast start will see teams race along the beach, before climbing along the El Arish – MissionBeach road to join the Musgravea Track. This trail follows an old forestry road used in the 1960s and 1970s to haul timber from South Mission Beach to the El Arish timber mill. A mainly flat trail ride to reach the Mountain Bike Park follows where teams can then put their skills to the test. Finishing with a fast ride back to Castaway Resort.
