Course Overview

If you're looking for four days of the best riding around, hitting the most fun trails, rolling out of some iconic destinations before kicking back with a cold one or three post-stage - then the Cape to Cape course has been built with you in mind!

Our course team has scoured the South West Region in search of the best trails to put your two tyres on, but they always come up with the goods, and 2024 will be no different. 

Kicking things off at the most South Western point of Australia on Cape Leeuwin, before heading inland for an epic new location in Nannup, then we're back to fan favourite and froth top central CBCo. and finishing up at Wise Winery in Cape Naturaliste, what else could you want!

Check out our 2024 stage locations below, and stay tuned for more info!

Individual stage details including course length, climb and routes are coming soon - keep your eyes peeled!

2024 COURSE DETAILS

 

Our team have been working hard and we can now confirm the locations of the 2024 stages - and they're absolute rippers!

 We've listened to your feedback and have taken all the best bits of the last 15 years of Cape to Cape - from the Cape Leeuwin start, to the iconic Margaret River trails and CBCo. venue, to the finish up at the northern Cape Naturaliste to round out your week of riding! We're keeping the Good Times Rolling and are excited to announce an event first, brand new stage for 2024 in the Nannup Tank 7 MTB Park. 

Stay tuned for the stage details release closer to October!

 

 All courses are subject to change up until race morning briefing. 

 

Cape to Cape courses can only be ridden in their full format at event time. Locals heroes open up their gates and allow access to their private land for the C2C riders as the event benefits the community in so many ways. Please respect private property and make sure we are able to continue accessing these tracks by not pre-riding the course.

Stage 1 – Cape Leeuwin

 

It’s the most iconic start line in Australian MTB Stage Racing – the roll out from Cape Leeuwin remains the grand depart of Cape to Cape for 2024!

With the lighthouse towering in the background, waves crashing against the cape and the hills looming – Stage One’s roll out is grandiose to say the least. Riders will thunder up Skippy Rock Road in a peloton far cooler than any at the TDF, before dropping into a mix of single trail, fire road and gravel punctuated by rolling hills and a few steep, sharp climbs.

Stage 2 – Nannup

 

We're excited to announce a brand new stage for Day 2 of the Cape to Cape, in the pristine Tank 7 Mountain Bike Park - for the first time ever we're headed to Nannup!

The trails provide a rough, raw and rocky experience for mountain bike enthusiasts, suitable to a range of abilities from beginners to more adventurous and experienced mountain bike riders.

Stage 3 - Margaret River

 

It's a fan favourite stage and for good reason - Cape to Cape would not be complete without a stage on the famous trails next to Margaret River - Compartment 10 and the Pines!

We're headed back to CBCo. for the stage venue this year, also a fan favourite not just for it's fantastic beverages but for it's kick-back and relax vibe. After departing CBCo., we roll towards a lineup of trails ahead that will have you flowing better than beer out of the keg, with berms, rollovers and machine smooth compacted trail beneath your tyres – think pure MTB heaven!

Once you’re almost single-trailed out, we’ll burn it back through the bush for a round of the region’s finest bevvies next to the lake to celebrate just one stage remaining!

Stage 4 – Cape Naturaliste

 

Rounding out the 16th Cape to Cape anywhere else just wouldn't be the same, so we're stoked to be heading back to Cape Naturaliste and Wise Wines for Stage 4!

A brief encounter with the coast up at Eagle Bay to kick things off, before you head for the trails of Zone 6 and the Golf Course in Dunsborough. You’ll zig and zag your way through here until your heart’s content before the final section up to roll under the finish arch and mark yourself a Cape to Cape finisher!

 

All courses are subject to change up until race morning briefing. 

 

Handcycles

Cape to Cape welcomes handcyclists on all 4 stages of the event.

Our fantastic course team have created diversions to ensure the trails with limited space and log roll overs are taken out allowing you to have the best experience possible on your handcycle.

Handcycles will need to bear in mind that there are some water crossings that couldn’t be avoided. Your support rider will be vital to get you through them!
