Snowies MTB Festival

The iconic Snowy Mountains are set to host the ultimate mountain bike experience in November 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 Australia’s 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 Thredbo’s new All Mountain Trails.

Join us in what is arguably Australia’s 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, share the stages between 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.

The event kicked off with a predominantly single-track time trial, circumnavigating the Lake Crackenback.....

I got a great start on stage 3 with a nice hole shot & led the pack into the single track......

The Prologue was very exciting. There is nothing like knowing you have a man 30secs ahead of you, but also a man 30secs behind you....
