This race provides a fast-paced tour of Mt Buller by taking in many of the best sections of single track located close to the Mt Buller Village. All the local favourites are included like a top to bottom run on Gang Gangs, the Misty Twist berm descent, the Medusa switchbacks on Silk Lane, the cranking Corn Hill descent and the challenging Split Rock climb back up to the village.
As well as plenty of super-fun descents the course also includes 4 solid climbs that will get your legs working and lungs heaving as you conquer the switchback climbs that get you back to the top at a ride-able gradient.
Lift your head and you’ll enjoy some magnificent views and amazing alpine scenery in this short but pretty sharp race along the trails
