Cairns World Champs – Updated Spectator Access & City Live Site

The XC and DH courses have been updated for even better access for spectating!

Updated spectator access – no more long way around to the juicy bits!

Choose from six designated spectator zones for the best viewing of racing action, come find us at the Herbies Pocket Live Site above Jacobs Ladder if you’re thirsty.

The DH track has received a lot of work to allow easier foot traffic up and down the course, so there’ll be less tramping through the jungle to get to your favourite section of track to watch the race, good news for sure. In the previous World Cup events on the same track, spectators would have to walk the LONG way around to reach the whoops and rock gardens up high, but for this World Champs, there’s a track right up alongside the race track.

Want to watch the bikes and bodies flying everywhere at the rock garden? No more long walk around the back side of the mountain needed, straight up the course you go!

Cairns City Live Site 

From Thursday to Sunday, the CBD will host a Live Site right next to the Cairns Lagoon with a stage playing all the action, DJ’s, live music, stunt rider demos, family activities and a mini-expo. Oh, and a BBQ.

Cairns City Live Site Hub, right next to the lagoon in town.

What to do after hours?

See you there!
