Albany Mountain Bike Club is proud to present our first event for 2022 with the Great Southern Motorcycles Cross Country at Kardarup Mt Melville! These trails are some of the best for an XC format with plenty of great opportunities for overtaking and plenty of hills.

It’s time to dust of the bike, get some gear on and hit the trails. Race against your mate or rival, challenge yourself or bring a friend for some MTB trail fun. Know someone who doesn’t ride but wants some of the action? Supply a marshall and get a free entry.
