Update: After a lot of thought we have reluctantly cancelled the BDO Taranaki Cycle Challenge that was to have been held in January 2021. The present day Covid19 situation places a great amount of uncertainty & stress around the organising of big events. We have made the decision early to allow our many out of town participants time to rearrange any plans they may have had. We especially want to thank BDO Taranaki who were prepared to continue as the major sponsor.
This new 50km MTB event will run in conjunction with the BDO Around The Mountain Cycle Challengeon 25 January 2020.
The course will be a combination of single track, cycleway, road.
The long course will be 50km long with approximately 1200m of elevation. Riders will start at TSB stadium and ride out to the Lake Mangamahoe MTB trails via local pathways and paper roads. Riders will complete a 30km circuit then return to event HQ at TSB Stadium.
This course will follow the long course from the TSB Stadium to Lake Mangamahoe. The course will then split and ride 10km of pure single track heaven. Riders will then return to town to race HQ.
Course maps may change closer to the event date.
