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.
