This month we race in the Mount Aspiring region of New Zealand. The four out and back legs of the breath taking Matukituki & Dart Valleys surround the Cascade Saddle and is one of the most beautiful and dramatic of all the passes that canicrossers can reach in New Zealand. I's a very steep and demanding climb. On a fine day, the rewards are as numerous as the mountains you can see from atop the alpine pass, including an eyeball-to-eyeball view of Tititea/Mt Aspiring. Race and Course distance is just over 101.2 Km.
