UPCOMING: GIANT ODYSSEY - 10TH ANNIVERSARY!

20th January 2016

Coming into its 10th year, the Giant Odyssey is Australia’s most respected mountain bike marathon thanks to the quantity of epic single track, the lung-busting hills and blitzing descents, the electrifying race atmosphere and sense of satisfaction you get when you finish in the middle of the massive event festival. We look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 edition.

THE ODYSSEY IN A SNAPSHOT – CELEBRATING 10 YEARS

DATE: Saturday 20th February 2016 - NEW DATE!
LOCATION: Forrest (Great Otway National Park), South-West Victoria
RACE FORMATS:

  • Giant Odyssey 100km
  • Giant Shorty 50km
  • NEW Giant Rookie 30km
  • NEW Giant Pioneer 10km
  • NEW Giant Grommets fun riding for (little) kids

The Giant Odyssey remains Australia’s most respected MTB marathon with an even broader range of events to cater for all riders. Lock it in for 2016 and be part of our celebratory 10th year edition.

By popular vote the format of the 2016 Giant Odyssey will be the same as 2015 and earlier years with the same 100km and 50km courses and the event starting and finishing at Forrest.

But NEW for 2016 will be the medium distance 30km Giant Rookie event – a race that’s custom designed for MTB newcomers and those not quite up to 50km. Other evolutions mean that the Giant Pioneer will be shortened from 15km to 10km to be even more welcoming to kids and we are including a new Grommets Ride for little kids on balance bikes around the Forrest Footy Ground.
