Toyota Cannonball MTB Festival

The Toyota Cannonball MTB Festival returned to Thredbo this weekend, bringing with it some of the world’s best mountain bike riders. Around 470 riders took part, making it the biggest gravity mountain biking event in Australia. With Sam Hill, Troy Brosnan, Connor Fearon, Andrew and Thomas Crimmins, Luca Shaw and Tegan Molloy all present, it was a great opportunity to watch these stars in action..

The main event was the Australian Open Downhill and Troy Brosnan took the win in a scorching time of 5:04, edging out Connor Fearon and Sam Hill in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

The weekend opened with riders battling it out in the SRAM Dual Compressor, with Blake Neilsen showed his style on the jumps, berms and rhythm sections to come out on top. The RockShox Pump Challenge rounded out the first day of competition on Friday night; young gun Remy Morton tore up the revamped pump track to take home the title.

The weather was just as spectacular as the riding, with blue sky and sunshine right across the weekend. The ODI Whip Wars was a spectator favourite with over 100 riders lining up to impress the judges. There were flips, plenty of massive whips to keep the crowd entertained and Connor Fearon was eventually crowned the King of Style.

Local riders Thomas Crimmins and Tegan Molloy used their home track advantage to take out the Maxxis Flow Motion Cup, where the 4.5km track was certainly a test of endurance and stamina.
