About the listing
Australia’s most respected mountain bike marathon, the Otway Odyssey presented by Focus will see hundreds of riders race through the spectacular Otway Ranges near Forrest in south-western Victoria from 26-27 February 2022.
The 16th edition of the event features the popular 100 kilometre MTB Odyssey, 50 kilometre Shorty and 30 kilometre Rookie mountain bike races, as well as the kids’ 10 kilometre Pioneer event, all starting and finishing amongst a huge bike expo and food festival at the Forrest Football Ground.
After its hugely successful inception in 2017, The Great Otway Gravel Grind (The GOGG) will also return for a 6th year so road riders, gravel enthusiasts and recreational riders of all styles can enjoy a scenic but challenging 49 kilometre or 97 kilometre ride on the Range’s smooth-rolling dirt roads as part of this popular new riding format. The GOGG has time-out zones too.
Female riders taking the first step into racing can enjoy a range of new 'Otway Angels' skills programs, partnerships, networking opportunities, course recces and special events that aim to improve accessibility to the sport.
