Reef to Reef is Australia’s newest MTB stage race taking place over four days in the heart of Tropical North Queensland returns from Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th August 2019.
Starting on the reef fringed Coral Sea coast it quickly heads inland across a network of trails through tablelands, hinterland, farm lands, MTB parks, and tropical rainforest before finishing back at the coast four days and 185 km’s later. Each day’s stage has its own unique terrain and character to keep things interesting with a mix of fast flowing single trail, farm track, groomed downhill trails and fire trails – many through private land that can only be ridden while racing the Reef to Reef.
There’s nothing too technical but enough to get your attention including 2450m of vertical climbing. Achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and MTB skills.
The Reef to Reef Queensland is a sister event to the Port to Port in N.S.W. and the Cape to Cape in W.A., making up the newly formed triple crown of Australian multi-stage MTB racing.
