Bike Buller set to rock
More than 600 mountain bikers are set to converge on Mt Buller for three days of racing on world class trails for the tenth edition of the Shimano Bike Buller Festival this long weekend (10-12 March).
The event features racing for all types of riders, including downhill, gravity enduro and cross country races, as well as spectator and kid's events.
The three-day celebration of mountain biking features an extensive Bike Expo, pump track and dual slalom races, MTB movies in the cinema, kids’ rides and the popular Picnic in the Park food, wine and music festival held in the Mirimbah Park at the base of Mt Buller.
The weather forecast could not be better, either, with clear skies and endless sunshine through to next week.
A greater emphasis on gravity in 2018 will see the return of the Mt Buller Super-D as well as the Gravity Gods title for the key gravity races; The ABOM downhill, Gravity Enduro (Round 4 of the Victorian Gravity Tour) and the Outlaw all-mountain trophy.
Over 200 riders are already locked in for the series finale of the Victorian Gravity Tour, with the entry list including elite Australian enduro riders like Chris Panozzo, Ben McIlroy, Paul van der Ploeg, Alistair Fairley, Michael Ronning, Shannon Hewetson, Brendan Johnston, Sian Ahern, Sarah Tucknott and many others.
Entries are available online up until 30 mins before each race start for the Shimano Bike Buller Festival at www.ShimanoBikeBuller.com
