The FulGaz Crazy Catz offer you the chance to tackle the famous “Peaks Challenge” with them. Held every year in Australia in March it is regarded as Australia’s hardest Grand Fondo by far.

Whilst the real event is 235 kms/4400 mtrs elevation this challenge covers 5 sections / 163kms/ 3760 mtrs elevation of peaks, including the hardest sections of Tawonga gap, Mt Hotham and the infamous Back of Falls.

You start and finish back in the Alpine ski Village of Falls Creek.

Ride it in a day like the real event or take your time riding the 5 stages over the 3 weeks,  the choice is yours.

Become a ‘virtual peaker’ and get a glimpse of what its like to do in real life.

3. CRAZY CATZ PEAKS CHALLENGE MOUNT HOTHAM 2019

This monster climb is the finale of the Tour of Bright. It rises to almost 1900 metres/6,250 feet at the top so it is a serious test for any climber. This climb isn’t quite as hard indoors because you’re not running low on oxygen near the top, but it’s a great example of a true alpine climb and up there with some of the toughest climbs in the Alps or the Pyrenees.

5. CRAZY CATZ PEAKS CHALLENGE ANGLERS REST TO FALLS CREEK (BACK OF FALLS)

The final climb back to Falls Creek on the back of Falls. Its where most riders struggle to finish. This ride begins in a sleepy hollow known as Anglers Rest and forms the last part of the 3 Peaks ride (Peaks Challenge Falls Creek). It starts with a short undulating 11km, before you turn at "WTF Corner" and up to the ski village of Falls Creek. At this point it heads uphill quickly with the first few minutes at 14%, before dropping back to an average of 10% for the first 8km. Once you pass the 12.9km mark (Trapyard Gap) the ride becomes considerably easier, but still has pinches at 10%, but there are small down hill sections and false flats.
