Welcome to world’s oldest and most iconic mountain bike stage race

The Crocodile Trophy is Australia‘s and the World‘s oldest and most iconic mountain bike stage race. It calls the holiday paradise that is Tropical North Queensland home and its stage plan from Cairns to Port Douglas is unique – every day is different!
The 8 days include lush rainforest trails, awesome single tracks in the so typical bushland surrounds; you‘ll ride through river crossings and the iconic Australian Outback and you‘ll finish on the breath-takingly beautiful Four Mile Beach.

Riding the Crocodile Trophy has been a dream since I started mountainbiking many years ago. In 2015 I could finaly ride my bike through the rainforest and the Outback and it was no doubt the greatest adventure ever on a bike. The Croc Trophy is maybe not comparable to the perfectly directed stage races we have in Europe, but it is something every mountainbiker should do at least once in a lifetime. You’re not just riding your bike in some of the most beautiful parts of the world, but you’ll also meet new people from all over the world and become friends with them for life.
Finishing the race at the beach with my wife and daughter waiting for me, was no doubt the greatest and most emotional feeling I ever experienced on a bike!
