The Otway Odyssey presented by Focus is one of Australia’s most respected off-road cycling events thanks to the quality of the courses with lung busting hills, blitzing descents and an electrifying race atmosphere that welcomes any rider – mountain bikers, roadies and gravel grinders.

For 10 years, riders have traveled to the famous Otway rainforest of Forrest in south-western Victoria to take on the region’s iconic single track, but in 2017 even more riders can be part of the action with the addition of the Great Otway Gravel Grind (The GOGG) 49 kilometre and 97 kilometre races to the schedule of events.

The action gets underway on Saturday 25 February with the principle mountain bike races; the 100 kilometre Odyssey, the 50 kilometre Shorty and the 30 kilometre Rookie, all starting and finishing amidst a huge bike expo and food festival at the Forrest Football Ground. The GOGG races and the kids 10 kilometre Pioneer MTB will be held on Sunday 26 February.

Race formats include:

100 kilometre Otway Odyssey
50 kilometre Otway Shorty
30 kilometre Otway Rookie
10 kilometre Otway Pioneer
97 kilometre GOGG Big Ring
49 kilometre GOGG Little Ring
