  • Description

    The Redback, an award-winning event, gives you four days and six stages of incredible mountain biking in Australia’s red centre.

    The event is all about racing some good miles on your bike and then kicking back around the pool with new and old friends afterwards. Its about riding in a truly awesome location, where the tectonic lines of the MacDonnell Ranges disappear into a distant horizon, with big blue skies, rolling single track and within a majestic desert landscape.

    The stages:
    The stages for 2016 have been redesigned to include many of the new trails that have been built recently, providing riders with the best of the best riding Alice Springs has to offer.

    Stage 1 – Central Communications 40km Cross Country Race – Thursday (AM)
    Stage 2 – 300m ANZAC Hill Climb – Thursday (PM)

    Stage 5 – Lasseters Hotel 50km Cross Country Race – Saturday (AM)

    The event format allows riders to enter all 6 stages OR pick and choose just the races you want to do which is great for riders with less experience or locals who still need to work.

    Either way Alice Springs delivers incredible riding in an incredible landscape so join us for a week you’ll never forget.
