Tasmania’s gravity nirvana, Maydena Bike Park is a mighty place, a must-visit bike park with a very unique flavour. With a magical combination of altitude, terrain and amazing trail construction, it’s Australia’s answer to the big bike parks of Europe or North America.
Yeah, yeah, we hear you, you’ve heard that all before. But what about the other way around, what would someone from a big bike park in North America say about Maydena? What would one of the founding members of the freeride movement, a mountain bike hall-of-fame member think of Australia’s mighty bike park?
Brett Tippie is a lunatic, a classic extreme athlete, a well-travelled and experienced rider. With a reputation for riding crazy lines, steep chutes and lapping bike parks like The Energizer Bunny on too much caffeine.
