The race

The Watopia Cup is an individual points race over two laps of the Jungle Circuit which includes plenty of action on dirt roads. Points will be scored for one intermediate crossing of the start/finish line and then again at the finish, where the most points are available.

There is an elevation gain of 79m per lap, a lead-in distance of 5.6km and a total distance of 21.4km.

Prize money

As this is a scratch race prizes go to individual riders.

First place picks up a cool $1,000 and the race pays down to 15th place.
