“I think being allowed to Start and Finish in the main street of Margaret River and take over the town for the day. I promise the course will do justice to the normal expectations around a Margaret River Special Stage as we now have so many trails to choose from. We propose to use a number of the trails around Wharncliffe Mille, Compartment 10 and The Pines in this Stage 4 alignment!” – Race Director, Jason Dover
“This one is pretty simple. We are planning to use pretty much all of the trail network out at Middle Earth should approvals go to plan. That is over 20km of amazing single track (we normally just use a 5-6km alignment through there on Stage 4). So this will be a massive treat for those riders who love Middle Earth as they will literally be able to overdose in these sweet trails.” – Race Director, Jason Dover
“We are planning to start and finish Stage 2 at a new location, Leeuwin Estate. This will be an awesome venue and a highlight in itself. But the course we have proposed loops down to Boranup Forest along the old Rails Trail and incorporates pretty much all of the trails in Boranup Forest out to Contos Beach and then back to Leeuwin.” – Race Director, Jason Dover
“Based on our initial planning the highlight for me, pending shire approvals, would have to be returning out to Surfers Point. I think it was the 2010 event when we finished Stage 2 out there. It is a remarkable place and the trails we have found to take riders out there are not going to be an easy ride and will bring back memories of some of the traditional challenges of Stage 1.” – Race Director, Jason Dover
The town of Margaret River will come alive during the 2017 Cape to Cape MTB transforming in to a place of festivity!
There will be food vendors, drink vendors, pop up bars, sponsor displays, live entertainment and much more. The major attraction will be the Shimano-MTB #shimanoexperience with the big container putting on a display of the best quality products Shimano has to offer!
