GO MAD FOR XCO

Australian Mountain Bike - - Fast Track -

Af­ter do­ing a bang up job in 2016, Mackay and District Moun­tain Bike Club (MADMTBC) are host­ing the 2017 Queens­land State XCO ti­tles. We vis­ited Mackay last year and the trail sys­tem they have built at Rowal­lan Park is top-shelf, and it’s prob­a­bly only a mat­ter of time un­til we see a na­tional XCO race up there. And once work on Kin­chant Dam is fin­ished, expect a na­tional level down­hill race to visit as well.

The event falls on the Oc­to­ber long week­end. Head up Satur­day 30th Septem­ber, race on Sun­day, re­lax on Mon­day be­fore head­ing home. Rowal­lan Park is close to town, and there is park­ing and cabin ac­com­mo­da­tion avail­able on­site. The Wind­mill Mo­tel, Quest Apart­ments and Par­adise Lodge are of­fer­ing dis­counted ac­com­mo­da­tion for rac­ers.
