The Crocodile Trophy.
Australia's and the world's most legendary MTB Stage race since 1994.
Race for 9 days from the jungle in Cairns to the Atherton Tablelands with bush singletracks to Irvinebank in the unique Australian Outback and finishing via Skybury Coffee Plantation and Wetherby Station on the breath-takingly beautiful Four Mile Beach in Port Douglas. Dream it. Live it. Share it.
Explore some of the toughest and most beautiful regions of Australia - on your mountain bike! The legendary Crocodile Trophy (UCI S1 category) is known as the most iconic and oldest Mountain Bike (MTB) stage race in the world.
It has been organised by ex-pro cyclist and Tour de France finisher, Gerhard Schoenbacher and his Australian company World Wide Sports Agency Pty Ltd. For the past few years, Rocky Trail Entertainment's Juliane Wisata has been acting as his Marketing Manager and Press Officer in Australia and NZ, while the organiser is overseas.
Starting with a circuit race in Cairns, over nine days you will ride for 900 kilometres on awesome single trails of popular Australian MTB parks, through river crossings and across ancient trails on wide plains. You'll still get a taste of the iconic Outback Highways in Far North Queensland as you duck in and out of rainforests and bushland, before finishing on Four Mile Beach in Port Douglas!
Ride with cyclists from all over the world, camping on cattle stations and in historic mining villages and even a coffee plantation! Possibility to stay in cabins or motels on most nights. You can also "get a taste for the Croc" with two public race stages in Cairns - visit the event web site for more details.
