Porsche Cars Australia is partnering with the Bicycle Network Australia for Peaks Challenge Falls Creek 2022, providing the lead car for the iconic cycling event.
The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo will spearhead the field of passionate bike riders for the 235 kilometre loop through the Victorian Alps on 13 March.
Peaks Challenge is a notoriously gruelling cycling event.
It includes over 4000 metres of elevation, three peaks to climb and a time limit of 13 hours.
The fastest riders will aim to complete the loop in around seven hours.
The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo will navigate the sweeping mountain roads starting at Falls Creek then tackle Mt Beauty’s Tawonga Gap, a six kilometre climb.
The descent through Germantown to Harrietville follows, and then a 30 kilometre climb up Mt Hotham. After crossing Dinner Plain, the loop continues towards Omeo to Anglers Rest before one last climb up the back of Falls Creek.
Every year thousands of cyclists take on this challenge, which requires not only peak physical fitness but also mental strength and the ability to finish the ride in the allowed time frame.
Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a gruelling 235 kilometre loop ride through Australia’s Victorian Alps. Every year thousands of riders take it on and, even though this year the Porsche Taycan was the event’s lead vehicle, it was Alison McCormack leading the riders across the finish line.
