" Fast and furious with diverse riding terrain, ranging from rainforest, flowing single trail, fast open beach and even a little bit of classic adventure racing inspired hike a bike. "

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 towards the Dreaming Trail. This short single track section climbs over steep terrain and exits along the El Arish-MissionBeach road to join the MusgraveaTrack. 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.
