Medium Croc Trophy LogoFor those of you who were planning to race the ‘taste of the croc’ for stages 1 and 2 this year, the club has recently been advised this will no longer be run.

The Crocodile Trophy returns to Far North Queensland for 2015, starting on Saturday 17th October with a 5 lap race of the Smithfield Mountain Bike Trails. This 9 day event is renowned around the world as one of the toughest mountain bike races out there. For more information about the Croc, head on over to

While you won’t get to ride it this year, (unless you’re racing the full event), we’d encourage everyone to come out to Smithfield and cheer on some of the worlds fastest endurance racers. There is a strong contingent of Australians again this year, with a number of Cairns based riders taking on the full 9 days of the Crocodile Trophy.
