  • Description

    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.

    The main event, the Toyota Australian Open DH on Thredbo’s famous Cannonball Downhill, will take riders to their physical and mental limits. The 3.5km course of fast, intense, non-stop gravity starts at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift and will be the best one yet. We will see the return of the old favourite, the no holds barred Thredbo Fire Road and this is exclusive to the Toyota Australian Open DH. Along with other substantial changes that will widen sections and add more fall line riding, this event also has the biggest prize purse on the Australia DH calendar.
