WHAT WILL YOUR ODYSSEY BE?
To win? To finish? To beat your mates? To just survive?
An Odyssey sent from the Gods... A heroic mountain bike marathon that journey’s through a range of wild landscapes and cranking single track… complete it, and you will have joined the mountain bike mythology!
After signing up for the Giant Odyssey 2014, you will be able to claim your stance atop the Otway Ranges as a warrior… a TWO wheeled warrior and conqueror of 100 kilometres of vertiginous climbs, thick swathes of forest and the odd mud monster clawing out from the ferns.
A sense of triumph will encapsulate you as you take in the event festival post ride, and share your courageous stories with warriors alike.
The biking battlefield shape-shifted in 2013 with a NEW MARATHON COURSE looping Forrest to Forrest. The same course will be retained for 2014, squeezing the most from this mountain biking Mecca's sweet and savoury single track.
Do you dare?
THE GIANT ODYSSEY IS PART OF THE MAVERICK MARATHON SERIES
The event also features as Race 2 of the Maverick Marathon Series - a new initiative for 2014 bringing together four of Australia's most popular mountain bike marathons, to provide riders with a Series that captures the essence of mountain biking and encourages participation at ALL levels.
