The 2017 UCI World Championships will be held in Cairns, Australia and is arguably one of the largest mountain biking events each year – a must see especially if your an Australian local!. With a single run to take the gold stripes in the Downhill and a one off race in the cross country it is an all or nothing event to take the top spot.
The Smithfield trails have been primped and preened by the World Trail crew and the venue has had a lick of paint. It’s all shoulders to the wheel as all the pieces of this epic event come together.
While you’re in Cairns, why not make the trip over to Atherton to watch or compete in, the final round of the Real Insurance Cross Country Marathon (XCM) series – the Tablelands Classic! Located only an hour and a half away from each other, these two events make for the perfect mountain biking holiday for you and the family.
