Cattlemen 100 MTB (mountain bike) is a regional cycling event spanning across Omeo, Omeo Valley and Benambra, highlighting the High Country’s breathtaking landscape acting as a ‘teaser’ for the forthcoming Mountain Bike Track. Due to the terrain this event will be XC-MTB only. There is something for the whole family including, post race award ceremony, live music, food, beverage and much more.
The Omeo Cattlemen 100 MTB is based on a similar event in the US Midwest, the famous Leadville 100 MTB, first held in 1994 and has become one of the best marked, attended and known MTB marathon in the US.
The event showcases the Omeo Region beyond the well-known Great Alpine Road. Gravel roads and other back roads only known to locals will be part of our race route, taking riders over Mount Gingee Munjie, Splitters Range, around Lake Omeo in Benambra and back to Omeo over Mount Sam, where riders go past the main trail head for the Omeo MTB trails.
