Southern MTB brings you a new, adrenaline pumping mountain bike festival that will be taking Albany, Western Australia by storm from 22nd-24th September 2017. Fully loaded with an exciting, gravity defying selection of action packed events – including Australia’s only urban downhill race – Southern MTB is guaranteed to throw a multitude of challenges on the table.
Along with the popular, nail biting Albany Urban Downhill event, there will also be the Southern Peaks endurance race and Jump Comp to cater for all different tastes for biking adventure.
Originating from a lightbulb moment of a young Albany Mountain Bike Club member, Travis Fage, who realised the potential Albany had to host an urban downhill event, the concept of the Albany Urban Downhill was conceived in June 2013. Having run for two successful years since the first Albany Urban Downhill event in 2014, organisers of the event saw the opportunity to take this exhilarating event to the next level.
Southern MTB 2017 event: promising more challenges and thrills for participants and spectators alike. Dedicated to bringing Albany to the world stage of mountain biking competitions, Southern MTB will be showcasing Albany and it’s scenic surrounds as an irresistible destination for mountain bikers from all over the world.
