Stage 2 - Killingworth

46km | 550m climbing 
Start and Finish: Sugar Valley Golf Course

This stage was all new for 2018 and it returns with a fresh look. The stage still begins with a climb up toward Sugarloaf. Yes it is steep, yes it is loose. Yes, there could be swearing. But the big news is instead of the road to the top we hit a collection of fire roads and new singletrack to drop into Killingworth and Holmesville.

At this point, you need to hope your cornering is up to scratch. There have been small amendments to these trails to make sure they flow really well - all the way back to where you started.
