It appears a revolution is afoot. The sight of this apparently makes even the hardiest of cyclists shudder:
Yes, the infamous DOC Grandview Ridge Track.
Not wanting to risk having the GSB Twitter and Facebook accounts shutdown by insisting the original course was developed through a fair selection process (vote rigging aside), work is progressing on revising the course and shaving off some 700m of climb. Might have to throw in some extra gravel grinding and a river crossing to make up for the loss though.
Details will be posted as soon as final arrangements are made in the next day or so.
This could be the easiest GSB yet 😱
