The Otway Odyssey and Great Otway Gravel Grind put on by Focus is one of Australia’s most respected off-road mountain biking events. The quality of the courses with tough hills, steep descents and an epic race atmosphere that welcomes all types of cyclists from mountain bikers, roadies and gravel grinders.
2021 sees some changes to the event. The 100km Otway Odyssey returns to the original course that has been used at the inception of the race involving more climbs. The 50km and 30km race also changes slightly but continues to go through the footy ground before the finish line.
The Otway Odyssey is now in its 15th year. Awesome races through incredible trails in the MTB mecca of Forrest, Victoria. These races are the most well regarded in Australia and provide an epic mountain biking experience for any rider – from Australia’s elite riders through to the newbies.
