Stage Map & Elevation

Stage Brief

Early start, leaving Franz Joseph for the drive to today’s start in Ross at 9:30 am. The 61-kilometre ride is on busier roads than previous stages. These roads are wider, but we will again be starting in small groups with the slower teams and individuals heading off the start line first. Hokitika has a roundabout and local traffic, so caution is required when passing through the town. Finish times will be recorded 2 kilometres before Greymouth.
