Description

- 3 Peaks Challenge
- Audax Alpine Classic Extreme

With its brutal opening kilometres and frequent steep pinches, the ‘Back of Falls’ is one of the most challenging climbs in Victoria. The road was sealed for the first time in 2009 and since then it has become a crucial ingredient in two of the state’s hardest challenge ride the 3 Peaks Challenge and the Audax Alpine Classic Extreme.
