Starting at the main trail head at Waipa. The 2015 Whaka50 heads out into the world famous single track that has made Rotorua one of the World’s top mountain biking destinations.

The course follows the 100km loop for the first 29km before splitting off at the bottom of frontal lobotomy. From here you head into the famous corners trail before rejoining the 100km course as you enter the Chinese Menu back to the finish line.

Washout's at both ends of the 1st bridge off the wash road. Also washout's throughout the flat section. A lot of material has been washed down the section between the skid site and katore road. Use with caution as a lot of soft spots and sudden ruts
