The dates and course for the "Coot-tha Burn" have been announced - February 13th 2016.
If you're looking for a challenge and experiencing the buzz of an uphill timetrial (quite rare in Brisbane) - then this might be the event for you!

This course is slightly shorter than the KOM / Santos TDU route - approximately 30s shorter and finishing in front of Channel 10.
Climbing hills is part physical and part mental - we find that most people who question their ability to get up hills like Mt Coot-tha don't lack fundamental fitness - rather they have some bad habits that are letting them down when climbing.
We can help you with that.
Yes. Nearly all riders who are new to riding Mt Coot-tha - or who haven't been coached on riding hills have a variety of skills that can be improved - sometimes dramatically.
Our coaches have taken many riders who were consistently riding 10 minute Mt Coot-tha and turned them into 9 minute riders in weeks.
Our most significant improvement so far has been turning a 21 minute rider into a 9 minute rider - and we're still working on him!
Let's be serious now - he is doing a 5:59 and climbing at more than 1800VAM/hr (vertical ascent - metres per hour) - seriously smoking up the hill!
