Cape to Cape MTB

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Blog

2017 marks ten years of the Cape to Cape MTB and to mark this milestone an epic four days of festivities has been planned! This year has been designed for everyone and anyone to participate in the Cape to Cape MTB and celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary. If you have previously competed in the Cape to Cape MTB we are inviting you to join us again, or if you are looking to participate for the first time then make 2017 as your year, we have taken away all the excuses and created the ultimate Cape to Cape course!

Cape to Cape MTB v1
2017 will be an event for the whole family with the close proximity of stages reducing travel time during the day and increasing the opportunity to really explore the Margaret River region and all that it has to offer!  To cap it off we will have an “Event Village” within the middle of Margaret River.  The Event Village will be open daily for the week of the event from the Wednesday onwards for Registrations, Merchandise, Sponsor Zones, Riding Demos, plus a stage for daily presentations and nightly music acts.  It will be the place to hang after each stage with food trucks, mobile bars, sponsor demos, elite rider marquees and everything else all within a close proximity of your favourite bars and restaurants in Margaret River.

Over the past few years riders have raved about how rad the Margaret River Special Stage is on Day 3 so for 2017 our Race Director has designed Four Special Stages for riders to absolutely froth on – and each will highlight the best set of trails through the south west capes region!

To celebrate 10 years of Cape to Cape MTB calling the South West region our home, we are taking a break from the point to point format, Year 10 will be based solely out of venues around Margaret River with all four stages starting within a 5km radius of the Margaret River town centre. The Four Special Stages have been designed to incorporate the best trails used throughout the ten years of the Cape to Cape MTB and will include Boranup, Middle Earth, The Pines and the soon to be opened Compartment 10.

Don’t miss Cape to Cape MTB from October 19 – 22 in Margaret River.
