Leave the parking area at Desert Horse Inn, cross the railway line and follow the district road for 2km to the town of Aus. Pass the Catholic church and cross the railway line onto the tarred road. Where the road forks go straight onto the gravel again, ride for 500 m and once you pass the last house on the right you will see the white arrow to turn right to the Aus reservoir. Pass the reservoir to reach the gate to the farm Kubub, carry on riding for about 7km to the junction indicated as water point A on the map. Turn right to continue on the jeep track for 3.4km. Before reaching water point B you will descend on a steep tricky downhill track (the downhill signs will warn you) - please take care. At the junction at the water point B sign turn left to follow a wearing 4.7km climb on a single track after which you reach the Nemesis viewpoint. Stop and enjoy the grand vistas.

After this breath catcher, continue on a short downhill stretch. Then sharply turn right and once again follow the single track climb. You will reach a steel bridge which you have to cross (for those who are not comfortable – please rather get off the bike and lift your bike over the fence). From here, continue to climb for another 500m to cross another wooden bridge. Continue on a single track which follows a mountain ridge with one steep climb and then descend in a westerly direction towards Nemesis. 300m before Nemesis make a sharp turn to the right and continue on a flat single track for 2.5km in order to reach again the junction indicated on the map as water point A. Turn left to continue again on the jeep track for 3.4km, to reach the water point. At the junction, turn right to follow a taxing 7km single track past the campsite,

At the Campsite deviate left in order to add another 12km of farm road past Eagles Nest to water point C. Expect a very steep tiring technical climb from kilometres 42-44. Be prepared to push your bike for 150m on the first part of the climb.

At Water point C turn right and follow the track to water point A, then B past the Checkpoint to the Finish at Desert Horse Inn. You have completed at 60km ride!!
