The Toyota Cannonball Festival is back for 2015 and promises dirt, vert and freewheeling action as some of the world’s best mountain bike riders mix it with rising stars and amateur enthusiasts to take home their share of the massive $45,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs.
Voted MTB Event of the Year at the Mountain Bike Australia Achievement Awards at the 2015 National Championships, the Cannonball Festival attracts riders from across the nation and some internationally across most skill levels, the event is a great introduction to the world of mountain bike racing.
Racing at its most raw, the Sram Dual Compressors crowd-pleasing format pits two competitors side-by-side to battle each other and the clock as they race to avoid elimination each round. The finely tuned course of jumps, berms, rhythm sections and drops makes for a gruelling battleground, challenging both pump-track specialists and the true downhillers. Riders will race on equal course side by side before integrating and pushing one another through to the finish.
