Peaks Challenge Falls Creek

Training Camp

5 February – 7 February 2021

The ultimate training weekend

Staying in Bright, you’ll experience three jam-packed days of riding, nutritional support, key-note speakers and specialised recovery with our wave leaders from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 February 2021.

Sessions are divided into riders wanting to achieve a 11–13 hour finish and riders aiming for a sub 10 hour finish at Peaks Challenge 2021.

In addition to on-route training, the camp will focus on nutrition, event day planning, riding tactics and recovery in the lead up to the event. Plus, to achieve our 50/50 mission we’ve designed women specific sessions to support our growing Women’s Community.

Post camp, riders will have the opportunity to check-in with Wave Leaders in the lead up to the event, attend Wave Leader Briefing Sessions on Saturday 6 March and receive a recovery pack post ride. 

This is a COVIDSafe EVENT, if you are sick or unwell please do not attend. VIEW COVIDSafe Event checklist.

Meet the team

Team Bicycle Network rider Steve Lane

Stephen Lane

Wave Leader: 8 Hour

Stephen completed a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and will focus his teachings around nutrition and training throughout the camp. Stephen has been an 8-hour wave leader three times, but 2020’s wet and wild conditions highlighted the importance of being confident in his preparation and fitness to combat the physical and psychological challenge. This event stands as one of his most memorable ‘I’m not giving up’ days and he is ready to share his insights and strategies with you.

Team Bicycle Network rider Alison McCormack

Alison McCormack

Wave Leader: 10 Hour

In 2021, Alison will take part in her 10th Peaks Challenge event and will be supporting and celebrating with those riders that crack sub 10 hours. Alison’s favourite part of the ride is the stunning scenery while rolling down to Anglers Rest. But she warns riders not to underestimate Mt Hotham! As the captain of Team Bicycle Network and an active ambassador of our Women’s Community, she has a wealth of knowledge and experiences to share with you at the training camp.
