“This is an Epic event! I have raced all around the Australia across many sports and the Otway Odyssey is one of best of have done! Great vibes at the start, spectacular views, the Otways rainforest is breathtaking! The event hub is pumping and gets you firing for the last 35km of the famously flowing Forrest trails… I thought this would be a one off for me….but I’ll be coming back for many years now! – Wes Enticott, 2021 100km Odyssey rider.
