Australia’s only Urban Downhill – fast, daring and exhilarating, competitors race through beautiful Albany at speed and finish on the iconic Stirling Terrace.
This year, beginning from Mt Clarence, riders will take an exciting steep route down the Mounts. Using features not available to ride at any other time, this year's course will take the bush section used for 2017-2018, and combine it with the spectator-friendly Urban section of 2014-2015.
