After much deliberation we are excited to announce that the Cattlemen 100 MTB will go ahead with the new date of SATURDAY 28th NOVEMBER 2020, with support from the East Gippsland Shire Council.
Cattlemen 100 MTB (mountain bike) is a regional cycling event spanning across Omeo, Omeo Valley and Benambra, highlighting the High Country’s breathtaking landscape acting as a ‘teaser’ for the forthcoming Mountain Bike Track. Due to the terrain this event will be XC-MTB only. There is something for the whole family including, post race award ceremony, live music, food, beverage and much more.
The Omeo Cattlemen 100 MTB is based on a similar event in the US Midwest, the famous Leadville 100 MTB, first held in 1994 and has become one of the best marked, attended and known MTB marathon in the US.
The event will showcase the Omeo Region beyond the well-known Great Alpine Road. Gravel roads and other back roads only known to locals will be part of our race route, taking riders over Mount Gingee Munjie, Splitters Range, around Lake Omeo in Benambra and back to Omeo over Mount Sam, where riders go past the main trail head for the Omeo MTB trails.
A COVID19 safe plan is being implemented and will be closely monitored, abiding by current laws and restrictions. With the year 2020 has been we wish for everyone to be safe and have a great time post pandemic.
