Team Challenge 

Do you have like-minded cycling friends or colleagues? If so, why not join together with your work-mates, gym buddies or your friends and participate in the Northern Star Community Challenge as a four-person relay team? 

The Northern Star Community Challenge is the Menzies Classic course (132km) and is broken up into four approximately equal sections. The first rider completes the section out of Kalgoorlie to Paddington, hands over to their team-mate who then pedals off to Davyhurst. Here number 3 team member is waiting. Number 3 pedals onwards to Comet Vale where the final team member will then cross the finishing line in Menzies or all team members can cross the line together. 

Each team will need a vehicle and support person to carry all riders and equipment. Each team is responsible for placing its own rider at each handover point. 


Smaller Teams 

Can’t find three other people? No problem – teams can be up to four members so teams of two and three are also encouraged to participate. For those riders who just want to finish the event and not be part of the handicapped race, you can also ride the Northern Star Community Challenge as an individual.  



You will need to register your team and members so come up with a great team name and even dress up for the day. Registratoins opening early 2025
