Start/Finish: Xanadu Wines
The vast expanse of Xanadu Wines provides an ideal destination for the start of the 10 Year Anniversary edition of the Cape to Cape MTB. Rolling out through the grape vines riders will head north towards Margaret River in search of the coveted Pines. Entering the tall towering timbers, returning riders will be entering familiar territory while new participants will be picking their jaw up off the ground as the trails take their breath away.
The old faithful Burnside Loop will make an appearance along with the loamy goodness of Wharncliffe Mill before riders twist and turn their way back to Xanadu Wines to end what will be an epic Stage 1. Be sure to take advantage of the wonderful facilities at Xanadu Wines after crossing the finish line to relax and recover ahead of Stage 2!
