WATCH: Thredbo Bike Park celebrates 30 years with video campaign

Thredbo is marking the 30th anniversary of its Bike Park with a new campaign, ‘30 Years of Gravity’. Since 1990, the Snowy Mountains ski resort has operated one of the most well-known trail heads in the country with over 34 kms of downhill, flow and all-mountain tracks. 

Ahead of biking season opening on 21 November, Thredbo released the first of a three-part series titled ‘The 90s: The Evolution of Bikes’. As the title suggests, the video takes a look at mountain biking in the nineties, a decade which many consider to be the most important in terms of bike tech and the sport entering the mainstream.

"The '90s is considered a golden era of the sport and a period which saw a huge amount of progression in both bike technology and trails,” Thredbo Mountain Bike Business Manager Tim Windshuttle said. 

“I can’t wait for everyone to travel back in time to see what riding was like back in the '90s and how much it’s grown since then.” 

In the video we hear from some champions of the early Australian mountain biking scene and see just how far the sport has come.
