Australian Mountain Bike — December 01, 2017

(Jacob Rumans) #1 - 11

Falls Creek is becoming the pre-eminent
summer mountain bike playground in Australia,
but in spring they also run the most unique
mountain bike event in Australia – McKayos.

With a mass start on snow, riders plunge down
the ski slopes of Falls Creek, through the village,
and onto the mountain bike trails below, racing
bar-to-bar all the way into the valleys.

There’s not much time to inspect the course (save
for the sections through the village), so it’s up to
riders to race on adrenalin, talent and instinct.
