In this episode of Destination Trail, we follow Troy Brosnan to the remote island wilderness of Derby, Tasmania.

Jungles, pine forests—this corner of the world checks all of the terrain and flora boxes, and with only a handful of cafes and pubs to keep the isolated locals occupied, an epic trail network seemed only natural. 

Join Troy and Specialized Australia employee, Patrick Young, as they leave the stress of the professional DH circuit behind in pursuit of loose singletrack, insights into trail building, and all-around good times.

Welcome to the second season of Destination Trail. This year, we’ll continue to follow riders as they travel the globe, hunting for its greatest trails.

Some of what they’ll find might be renowned, some undiscovered, but that’s the point.

After all, when expectations and attitudes are stripped away, only the essence of mountain biking remains. This where adventure continues to thrive, and it’s here that memories are made.
