2017 Crocodile Trophy

2017 Crocodile Trophy

This year marks the 23rd edition of the Crocodile Trophy, known to be one of the most demanding bike races in the world.

Running across 8 gruelling stages and 650km, this event draws more than 120 riders from around the globe keen to test their wits in the extreme Aussie Outback. Riders will race the ~600km and cover over 12,000m of elevation through the incredible landscape of Queensland’s Tropical North.

Stage 1 of the 2017 Crocodile Trophy will take place at Smithfield MTB Park, the home track of the Cairns Mountain Bike Club, which will host the UCI World Championships only a week before.

With an S1 UCI status, this is the world’s oldest and has been said to be the toughest international mountain bike stage race – and it is your chance to take on the challenge of a lifetime!
