  • Description

    The Alpine Assault is a marathon-style MTB event held in the Victorian Alpine village of Mount Buller.

    The Victorian Alps is a unique and spectacular environment and the village of Mount Buller is perched on the rooftop of this environment. The Mount Buller Resort has developed Australia’s premier Mountain Bike trail network and the event makes full use of this. Couple the awesome trails with a wide range of accommodation options, cooler summer temperatures and beautiful Alpine scenery; this is not just an event for you the rider, but all the family as well.

    The Course is based on a 40Km loop starting and finishing in the Village. It heads out to, and around Mount Stirling. The course has been designed to include all the now famous Mount Buller trails like Copperhead, Stonefly, Silk lane, Misty Twist and many more. It is one epic 40km loop that includes something for everyone from Australia’s elite endurance racers through to the genuine weekend warrior.

    An added bonus for all riders will be the magnificent Alpine Vistas that will be experienced at many parts of the course. We think the Alpine Assault truly is Australia’s most spectacular marathon event.
