The Otway Odyssey and Great Otway Gravel Grind put on by Focus is one of Australia’s most respected off-road mountain biking events due to 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.
2019 sees all of the courses back as well as the new unvieling of the Odyssey Angels initiative to support and encourage greater female participation at the event.
