So, maybe you've heard all your mates banging on about how cool the racing is and the thrill of close racing over mostly short stages... or maybe it's that you've heard just how freeking unrool Stage 4 is... blah blah blah, waffle waffle.
Here's all you need to know from one of our "rock stars" last year >
"Atmosphere was awesome with supporters hollering, great marshals, stages are just right balance between technical and easy. Great format, sprints on Saturday, 50k on Sunday."
So, stop reading and hearing about it... and get on board yourself.
Entries will once again be limited to 400 entries, so get in quick and stop your excuses.
Forrest Festival - stage racing in the best mountain bike town in Australia!
FORREST Festival has become one of the "must do" events in Australia
3 -4 December 2016
Now in our 6th year, we've worked hard to make our little event even better.
More Categories - including Clydesdale and Single Speed
Same Great format - including our now famous stage 4 head to head
Extra activities planned - when you're not riding your bike and for the whole family
Friday night short track event
So, you've heard all the hype, here's your chance to get involved... and remember our event is MOSTLY for the average mountain biker who loves riding their bike and occassionally racing against their mates. Naturally we also cater for the faster types.
Stage racing of this type is a great way to experience MTB racing. Due to the nature of it, it's rare to be passed by a faster rider, rather you find yourself surrounded by riders of your own ability... so why not see what it's like to throw on a number and "feel like a rockstar"!
We have agreed to keep our popular low price for EARLY BIRD entries.
With only 400 places available, we will NOT be able to extend this number and hence there will be a first come first serve basis.

Entries will be individual riders only.

All this for just $235 (early bird price $195 - before 4th July 2016 )
