Dropping the Great Divide (Downhill Mountain Biking Cairns Australia)
The iconic Snowy Mountains are set to host the ultimate mountain bike experience in February 2016 where riders will be challenged with 5 stages across 3 days in rugged mountain terrain in the hunt for a massive $10,000 Prize Purse.
Starting at an altitude of 1260m, riders will be tested with over 100k of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, a mammoth ascent, and some awe inspiring downhills, making this one of Australias most iconic mountain bike stage races.
In 2016 we add an all new stage with the Thredbo All Mountain Descent including a chair ride to the top of Australia followed by 9ks of epic downhill on Thredbos new All Mountain Trails.
Join us in what is arguably Australias most affordable and logistically convenient stage race where you can just enjoy the epic riding that only the iconic Snowies can deliver.
Tackle all 5 stages as a solo or as a team of 2 or 3, OR choose to do the 45k marathon or 30k or 15k XC MTB only in this not to be missed Mountain Bike Experience.
