Otway Odyssey offers $40,000 purse

The inaugural Otway Odyssey Mountain Bike Marathon will be held on February 3rd, 2007 and will lead competitors from the ocean shores of Apollo Bay (South-West Victoria, Australia) to the township of Forrest and return, totalling a distance of 100km in the Otways National Park.

Riders will pass through some of the region’s best kept secrets by riding along the bush tracks and trails hidden deep within the rainforest; passing giant tree ferns, towering mountain ash, picturesque lakes and spectacular views over the coast and surrounding ranges. The mid way point of the ride will be the Forrest football ground where a massive festival will be under way to welcome cyclists.

The Otway Odyssey may be completed as an individual riding the whole 100km, as a team of 2 riding half each or as a shorter 50km ride from Forrest back to Apollo Bay for those newer to the sport. With $40,000 in cash prizes spread across a range of divisions.
