Bike Buller MTB Festival Gets Super-Sized for 2015

Rapid Ascent have just announced a massive expansion of the Bike Buller MTB Festival for 2015. To be held 7-9 March, the program of events now has 14 races across three days of awesome riding.

Director of Marketing, Sales and Business Development for Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management, Amber Gardner, is looking forward to the return of the popular event.

“Mt Buller has solidly cemented itself as a premier mountain biking destination, and we’re really excited to host an even bigger Bike Buller MTB Festival for 2015,” said Gardner.

“The Resort is now home to some of the best trails in the country, including the signature 10km XC trail Stonefly, Australia’s first flow down trail, Copperhead and set to open in December, the 40km Australian Alpine Epic, the very first IMBA Epic trail in the Southern Hemisphere.

“Sensational riding in this spectacular location, combined with plenty of fun activities for non- riders, makes for one seriously awesome weekend on top of the world at Mt Buller,” she said.

The three-day celebration of mountain biking will again coincide with the popular ‘Picnic in the Park’ food, wine and music festival held in the Mirimbah Park at the base of Mt Buller. There will also be a Bike Expo and plenty for non-riders to enjoy, including a range of exciting activities available on and around Mt Buller to suit all ages and interests.
