The first edition of the Audax Hotham Challenge was held on Sunday 9 March 2014. More than 70 entrants rode the three courses that were offered. Mt Hotham. Mt Buffalo and the Ovens valley turned on perfect weather and, as those who started at Dinner Plain discovered, sunrise at Mt Hotham is unforgettable.


Information about next year's event will be posted later in the year.

The Big One: Mount Hotham to Mount Buffalo (200 km)
It’s still dark in Dinner Plain village as you kit up for the 200 km Audax Hotham Challenge. What will the weather gods bring: glorious late summer sunshine or some diabolical combination of cold, wind and rain?
Mount Hotham to Bright (135 km)
Before you roll up to the starting line at Dinner Plain, make sure that you’re wearing a reflective vest (supplied free by the organiser) and that your tail light is flashing.  The vest must be worn while descending to  Harrietville and climb back to Hotham Heights.
Bright to Mount Buffalo (70 km)
Howitt Park in Bright is the starting point for the Mount Buffalo climb. What will the weather be like up on the mountain? Warm and sunny, cool and foggy, wet and windy?
Ride along the Ovens valley to Porepunkah, turn left at the roundabout and take the Mount Buffalo road towards the National Park.
