King and Queen of Peaks Challenge

It’s simple – the fastest combined climb time (female and male) up Tawonga Gap, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek will be crowned the King and Queen of Peaks Challenge. It’s not just the respect that will be earned, both riders will go home with $2,000 cash!


KOMs and QOMs will also be up for grabs for each individual climb, with $1,000 available for the fastest male and female up each of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek. That’s $6,000 in total prize money.

*The timing of climbs will be measured solely through the official event timing to determine who takes home the chocolates. King and Queen will be announced at 6:30pm at the event village.

Have you got what it takes?

The climbs

235km cycling and 4000+ metres of climbing

The route

Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235km loop ride starting at Falls Creek and riding up Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and through Omeo before heading up the back of Falls Creek.

The back of Falls will hit you like a tonne of bricks. With 200km in your legs, you’ll quickly learn why the first pinch is called WTF Corner, and the whole ascent The Beast. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve. Do you have what it takes?

something money can't buy

Finishers Jersey

It’s more than just a jersey. We know how much it means to you. It symbolises months of training, time away from family and friends, dedication, pain and commitment.

You’ll have 13 hours to make your mark and earn a jersey for yourself. It’s significance is something only a fellow Peaks Challenge finisher can understand.

We chatted to some Peaks finishers and let them reflect on their preparation, the challenge and what the finishers jersey means to them.
