Every year the Cape to Cape MTB attracts a formidable field of elite riders from across Australia and the world.
When you attend the Cape to Cape MTB, our wonderful Weekend Warriors ride in the same field as Olympians, World and National Champions!
With close to 70 registered elite riders, as well as a highly talented local rider field, the 2018 Cape to Cape MTB provided a viewing and racing spectacle not to be missed with riders being separated by mere seconds at the conclusion of the challenging Stage 1. The battles continued over the following three days with the days results not being set in stone until the fat lady sung. What does this mean for 2018?
2018 maintains the change seen in the Anniversary 10 year event of 2017 . Stepping away from the traditional point-to-point format could see a major shift in race dynamics at the front end of our field, a promising sign for 2018, allowing for a true battle royal between our elite women and elite men.
It is hard to predict what may happen at the front of a bike race however it is a definite that no energy will be left out there come the end of the 2018 Cape to Cape MTB on Sunday 21st October. Will we see a women’s race come down to the line again? Will we see a men’s race that also comes down to the wire? Or will we see fields torn apart by riders who love to put themselves deep in to the hurt box?
What is for sure is that nobody will want to miss the 2018 Cape to Cape MTB and we hope to see you all out there!
