  • The Fleche Opperman All Day Trial (or “The Oppy”) is a 24-hour team time trial held annually by Audax Australia.
  • Teams of three to five bikes must ride together at least 360km and finish at a designated location in each state… 
  • and if you’re not up for 24 hours of riding, try the Petit Oppy (180 km in 14 hours).
  • Teams choose their own routes to the designated finishing place.

How does it work?

  • The Oppy is a unique time trial in which teams ride a route of their own choosing to a common finishing point. The only restriction on route selection is that teams should ride a tour, not repeat circuits.
  • Having formed a team your captain should register first, completing the team details in the online entry system. Each individual member must then also enter online, through the Audax Portal.

Not up for a whole 24 hours of riding?

  • The Oppy’s ‘little brother’, the Petit Oppy, is available in most regions and runs on the same date as the Oppy. The Petit Oppy requires participants to cover a minimum of 180 km in 14 hours of riding.
