What are the events?
Track action kicks off at 10am and includes the Dual Slalom head-to-head flat-out elimination race, an off-road/that’s-not-a-road CycloCross race along with WA’s first ever CycloCross Fat Tyre Mountain Bike Race using the corridors of an unused building as its track. And then of course the headline event, the John Hughes Slopestyle. Starting from the verandah of the historic Edward Millen House, riders will launch themselves onto a sea container before plunging into the 150 metre long course packed with 10 ramps rising up into the trees. Elevated heart rates are guaranteed throughout the day. Punctuating the racing, the Freestyle Now stunt squad will be putting on a show of their latest BMX tricks and stunts.

What else is happening?
Off the track there will be plenty to keep you entertained between events. The Hawkers Market showcases the best food Victoria Park has to offer, alongside the Community Market packed with local retailers and their wares. You can kick back and relax with a view of the track from the 18+licensed area while Red Bull bring the tunes and the always awesome DJ car.
What about the little ones?
Rock’n’Roll mountain biking will be hosting kids riding sessions, introducing them to the sport of mountain biking, and the Town of Victoria Park will be running a Toy Library as well as arts and crafts activities throughout the day.
