The Course

Lee Quarry is well known for its rock features & fun single track. As with all Crank It events, the course is inclusive to everyone – from elite racers to beginners who have just started or mates who want to have fun! All technical (steep or drop-offs) options will have an easier route around them so you can ride what you are comfortable with! Regular racers & riders will also be challenged with the harder A-line, this race will cater for everyone.

We will be posting a course preview video on Saturday afternoon so look out for that!
