13 hours to prove yourself
Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is one of the greatest riding experiences of your life.
You’ll tackle the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, the beast that is the back of Falls Creek. It will hit you like a tonne of bricks.
Last year, 2,000 riders faced the peaks but only those who crossed the finish line within the 13-hour deadline earn the right to proudly call themselves Peaks Challenge finishers.
One of the greatest riding experiences of your life is within reach – you ride, we’ll do the rest.
“You cannot define this iconic undertaking by one moment. The entire event including all the training, camaraderie and preparation was one magnificent journey” – 2017 Peaks Finisher
A steep and relentless climb
Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235km loop ride from Falls Creek, via Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and Omeo to the Back of Falls.
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. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.Read more

something money cant buy
We know how much it means to you – it’s more than just a jersey.
It symbolises months of training, time away from family and friends, dedication, pain and commitment. It’s every early-morning wake up, grinding pedal stroke, bead of sweat and sleepless night. It tells the world that you went to the depths of suffering, and came out triumphant.
Its significance is something only a fellow Peaks Challenge Finisher can understand. And those that cross the line in under 10 hours wear that respect on their back.
