Age is no barrier but it's always nice to pit yourself against others in your category. You can go guts for garters or meander, it's your call but why not have a sporting chance?

Age categories are for 'Le'Originale' 72km, 'Short & Stout' 42.2km and 'Flowrider' 21km events.


Single Speed


Open Men's and Women's over the 72km Course

Keeping it simple is the theme. There's something to be said for the purity of riding one gear that only those in the know will appreciate. It could be considered a little primal and uncouth in modern day times but the synergy between rider and trail is the essence of mountain biking.

Race Director's Note - Single speed euphoria is not to be taken lightly!

Single Speed categories are for 'Le'Originale' 72km Event

Clydesdale


One for the Fellas over the 72km Event

For riders that prefer pure power over power to weight and don't care for carbon fibre bottle cages. If you like to eat, drink and enjoy the good life why should you have to compete against calorie counting racing sardines?

Men will tip the scales at 100kg.

Race Director's Note - The Colville Connection isn't the Olympics folks so don't expect to see a set of scales on the stage, we really couldn't care about a couple kilos.

Clydesdale category is only for 'Le'Originale' Men's 72km event.


Tandem


Open Category

One bike and two engines. The 72km course is a perfect outing for both experienced and novice tandem riders. Tandem rides are as much about knowing the other person as pedaling, why not share those Coromandel vistas with another?

Race Directors Note - Tandems can be a character building experience, be nice to your legend partner out there, we know you love each other even if it gets tough

Tandem category is only for 'Le'Originale' 72km event.
