The 90km bike course starts to the cheers of spectators before heading into the rolling farmland surrounding Taupo. The course is described as undulating with enough challenging sections to create a fair race.
The course will take athletes from T1 onto Rifle Range Rd, heading north then right onto Tauhara Rd, slight left onto Broadlands Rd, left at Centennial Dr to a U turn return to Broadlands Rd, left onto View Rd to a U turn returning to Broadlands Rd. You will then head back onto Broadlands Rd towards the turnaround at White Rd.
The return leg will be straight along Broadlands Rd towards Tauhara Rd, left onto Rifle Range Rd to the U turn at the bottom of Rifle Range Rd to start your 2 laps. (Repeat 1st lap) T2 will be on Kaimanawa Reserve just north of your second U turn on Rifle Range Rd.
