Race Details:

The GOAT is also new for 2022, with a slightly different take on mountain bike stage racing. With shorter stages designed to maximise fun, The GOAT takes riders to Yackandana, Mount Beauty and Bright for four days of racing on some of the Victorian High Country’s most beloved trails.

The XC GOAT and E-GOAT categories will be more or less a standard stage race — the first one to cross the line wins. The Gravity Goat category will run like an enduro, with three timed descents across the stage determining the classification. This won’t be a full-on gravity enduro, though — the XC riders will be taking on the same course after all — but it allows the XC Whippets and Endur-bros and Endur-brodetts to spend a weekend riding in the Victorian High Country together.

With the longest stage set to be 43km and almost entirely composed of singletrack, the courses for The GOAT are less about testing your fitness and more about maximising trail time. With each of the stages close to one another, the goal is for the event not to exist inside a vacuum. You can come to race your bike and still have enough time to enjoy the region without having to worry about big transfers or recovery.
