Are you ready for the Mt Taylor MTB Festival? Two days of MountainBiking in some of East Gippsland's best trails will all the classics thrown into one weekend! In its first year as a festival we will be running a 3hr Cross country Twilight enduro as well as a 1hr Cross Country Enduro for the juniors. To add to this we are running a shuttle day all of Saturday so you can get to the top of your favourite gravity trail and smash out runs all day long followed by a 2 stage Gravity Enduro on Sunday!
Mt Taylor 3 Hour Twilight Enduro
The Mt Taylor 3hr Twilight Enduro is back for another year featuring the classic XC course run on dusk. This means we start the race in daylight and finish in the dark adding a new aspect to the race as it progresses so riding lights are a must! On top of this we are running a 1hr enduro for any Juniors under the age of 15 ideal for those who want to have a crack at their first race!
The race course is approximately 7.7km in lenth and features mostly single track.
Please note: If you are entering a Team in the 3 Hour enduro and one or more team members wish to also race in the Gravity Enduro - you'll need to register each team member individually. Unfortunately this is currently a limitation of the MTBA Registration System.
Mt Taylor Gravity Shuttle Day
Do you want to spend a day smashing downhill runs but aren't interested in racing? Well this is for you! All day shuttles to the top of your favourite trail, giving you access to the Flow and Downhill trails so that you can smash trails all day long with your mates!
Mt Taylor Gravity Enduro
Gravity fanatic and love to race? This is for you! All day shuttle pass for Saturday so you can practice the course, with practice again on Sunday morning followed by racing starting late morning. This stage race will include both the original Mt Taylor Flow track and the new flow trail which just opened! Fullface Helmet Required!
