MOUNT COOT-THA (BACK SIDE)

Featuring as the decisive climb in the UCI Gran Fondo World Series Qualifier, Tour de Brisbane, Mount Coot-tha is the most popular of Brisbane city's climbs. Riders will tackle the climb at around the 90km mark. Attacks and splits are bound to be made here on the day! This direction is the more difficult anti-clockwise route, starting with the "Coot-tha Back" climb, a stinging 2.2km challenge averaging 9% and taking you to the first of the TV stations that occupy the top. Save some energy for the rolling hills across the top of Coot-tha, before a rapid descent takes you back to where you started.
