Set to an iconic backdrop of world famous surf beaches, private farmlands, rocky outcrops and national forests, Cape to Cape MTB is fun and challenging for riders of all levels, from recreational to competitive.
The Cape to Cape MTB was first held in 2008 to a field that only reached about 100 participants. Nine years later it now holds the title as Australasia’s biggest MTB multi-stage endurance race with our biggest field going over 1400 competitors last year.

Race reviews

It was a race to the finish at the Cape to Cape MTB as overall leader Mark Tupalski fought to keep his 23 second lead over travel mate Kyle Ward.

The two got out of Middle Earth in a breakaway with Paul Van Der Ploeg and local champ Craig Cooke. It was each to their own until Ward broke away from Tupac out of Yelverton on the tail of former XCE world champ Paul Van Der Ploeg who was driving the pace out front. Cooke crossed over as they entered Meelup but Tupalski could not hold on and faced a 30 second gap as they plummeted down the pea gravel single track toward the finish.

Ward sensed the chance and drove away to claim a one minute stage win over Tupalski and steal the yellow jersey and the 2015 winners title in the most dramatic finish ever seen at the Cape to Cape MTB. Close behind, Peta Mullens cemented herself in Cape to Cape MTB history by claiming victory of all four stages for the ladies.

Cape to Cape. Western Australia’s finest mountain bike stage race is over for yet another year with Mark Tupalski and Bec Henderson taking out overall honours. We were lucky enough to take part in a stage ourselves, the third, as part of our introduction to Shimano’s new XTR Di2 and mechanical offerings and we can tell you the trails are amazing. The videos are too, but don’t take our word for it have a watch through for yourselves.
