Stage 6

“Nevis”

Stage 6: This is where GODZone starts to get real. If you've managed to crack stage 5 and stayed within the time limits, you are now presented with a 170km bike ride with a fair bit of up and down. This will require teams to dig deep and keep trucking along. This ride takes teams through the historic Nevis Valley where they can see evidence of old settlements and gold mining. A climb up to Duffers Saddle leads to an epic high level crossing of the Old Woman and Old Man ranges, before a long descent to cross the Clutha River at Roxburgh. Still a ways to go before teams arrive at Lake Onslow.
