Reef to Reef Event Update

The Reef-to-Reef team was gutted earlier this year when it became clear that we wouldn’t be able to hold this awesome event in 2020 due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, the impact of COVID-19 continues to linger and as a result we won’t be able to hit the trails of Tropical North Queensland in 2021.

However, we’re stoked to be able to confirm that planning is in full swing to have Reef-to-Reef back on the event calendar in August 2022.

We love putting on this event as much as you love riding in it and can’t wait to see you all again for the third edition of Reef-to-Reef and the 30th edition of Triple-R.

While that gives you plenty of time for training, we know that nothing beats taking part in an event, and if you’re keen to hit the start line next year then why not head west and take part in Cape-to-Cape, with racing returning to the Margaret River from 21-24 October.


Reef to Reef is Australia’s newest MTB stage race taking place over four days in the heart of Tropical North Queensland.

Starting on the reef fringed Coral Sea coast it quickly heads inland across a network of trails through tablelands, hinterland, farm lands, MTB parks, and tropical rainforest before finishing back at the coast four days and 190 km’s later. Each day’s stage has its own unique terrain and character to keep things interesting with a mix of fast flowing single trail, farm track, groomed downhill trails and fire trails – many through private land that can only be ridden while racing the Reef to Reef.

There’s nothing too technical but enough to get your attention including 2525m of vertical climbing. Achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and MTB skills.

The Reef to Reef Queensland is a sister event to the Port to Port in N.S.W. and the Cape to Cape in W.A., making up the newly formed triple crown of Australian multi-stage MTB racing.
