“Porters Pass Purgatory” A shortened and more manageable version of The Main Divide starting from Kirwee to finish at the summit of Porters Pass for the 50km “Porters Pass Purgatory”. With a total ascent of 921m culminating in the final 2.8km ascent of Porters Pass at an average gradient of 8.8% this is a rare opportunity to race one of the toughest climbs in the region. A must for all those who love the hills. Watch the early break if you are a climber as you may just find the all rounder’s steal the day. The lead into the climb is long enough to allow tactics to dominate. Huge prestige in winning this race.
