The AvantiPlus Hellfire Cup is a professionally managed 4 day mountain biking event with stacks of onsite services and entertainment.  Teams of two riders compete to complete multiple race stages over 4 days. Held over great trails and amazing countryside.


Our philosophy is that racing should be challenging but achievable, that our guests at our events should be well fed and entertained. Riders should be rewarded with prizes for pros and jags of spot prizes for punters. Trails that keep you amped for the next riding stage and return you to a welcoming, laid back race village.
