After the smoking success of 2016, we are going to kick off the season with a lap around the mountain. The event will be hosted once again on the doorstep of the Cascade Brewery. The course is yet to be confirmed but it will most likely be very similar to our last adventure down south. Huge shout to the land managers for their enthusiasm in helping us put this one together again. Entries open soon
We have teamed up with Cascade Brewery, Hobart City Council and the Wellington Trust to bring you an event of epic proportion. Set on the majestic slopes of kunanyi / Mt Wellington and based out of the iconic Cascade Brewery, this event will be one to remember. With a slick combination of cruise and race stages, your day will be a tough one, but one to savour for the ages.
This event will start and finish on the doorstep of the iconic landmark that is the Cascade Brewery. From there we will ascend the lower slopes of the mountain before linking together some classic "Special" stages and "Cruise" stages as we make our way back to base. The "Special Stages" that we have included will keep even the fastest pinner entertained for well over 20min of race time. Yeehaa!!
The first climb of the day is a corker. From Cascade to The Springs via the dirt should be enough motivation to keep the legs turning during these colder months. But remember what goes up, must come down, and what a descent it will be!!
Junior riders can catch a shuttle up the second half of the first climb. This will cut out about 400m of climbing.
