What's the Goat all about?

mtb stage race designed for everyone

From the mini-shredder to the seasoned pro, everyone will be crossing the finish line fist pumping like they’ve won a million bucks. 


Based out of picturesque Bright in the heart of the Victorian High Country.  Where else would you rather be for a weekend of riding?

village vibes

The only thing better than a perfect day on trails is cracking open a cold one directly after.  The GOAT Village is home to cold beer, great food and the latest MTB kit and tech.  

the goat stages

Like all good mtb stage races, we aim to provide a healthy mix of fire-road and single-track, suffering and joy. But unlike other stage races, we have a diverse number of categories catering to different riders with different strengths. With an equal emphasis on climbing and descending, we know our course will have both XC and Gravity heroes high-fiving after each stage.

total distance: 136.5km

total vert: 3,340m

total froth: endless...

the goat village

What’s a stage race without celebratory beverages and rejuvenating meals? Local brewers and food vans will be on hand each day to accommodate post-race banter and bragging sessions. So while you’re neck deep in lactic acid each morning, just remember the festival waiting at the finish line!

Goat Merch

Not to brag, but The GOAT has the sickest merch going round.  

Designs this good take time though, so you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get yours.
