Perhaps not in the case of the Great Southern Brevet 2017 Edition. Severe weather which included a 1 in 100 year flood (Waikaia) and epic snow on the Pisa Range, meant the 2017 edition was challenging but somewhat foreshortened.
Seems it wasn't enough to discourage some from having another go and demand is peaking for another run at the aborted 2017 Great Southern Brevet course.
The same spectacular high country scenery and challenging remote tracks await those keen riders again in 2019. The Great Southern Brevet will tempt fate to travel over the enthralling route that kicked in all off over 7 years ago.
Will fortune favour the brave? or will Central Otago's famous summer(?) weather strike again? Be in Tekapo on the 19th of January 2019 to see for yourself!
