Calling all cyclists! Find 2014 results here. This event was run for the first time in 2009 and is a popular accompaniment to the Motu Challenge multisport event. You can enter either an individual or a two person team. 

The 65km mountain bike is raced with the Motu Challenge competitors. Multisporters then split off at Motu Town to complete their run, ride and paddle, while Motu 160 competitors will get straight onto their road bikes and cycle 90km back over Traffords Hill and down Waioeka Gorge to Opotiki.
