Stage 3

18th SEPT 2017
Lake Tinaroo – TEPON     100 km/2600 m

 

DESCRIPTION   
You better be well rested for this one. The start will be very fast, since the first 30 km; along the water channels are almost completely flat. After the first tech and feed station, the landscape changes to more hilly with the first of many steep climbs. The long descent towards the main road between Atherton and Herberton is very technical at first with some rocky section and will then give you probably the last chance to recuperate.
After the road crossing, where you must dismount your bike and walk across, mayhem really starts. One brutally steep climb and dito descent after another will follow. Please take extreme care as riding above your abilities will result in a crash!  After this hard, but beautiful ride in the forest, the finish at Tepon Equestrian Park awaits.
