Mother Nature forced us off our original course but riders don’t let down your guard. Actually, better brace yourselves because we’ve got something to delight you single track lovers: Douglas mountain bike reserve, Townsville’s premier XC and All mountain trail network.

The 2018 XCM course is a mouth watering serving from this suburban single track smorgasbord. Flowy single track, techy rock roll downs, berms, structures, views of sprawling neighbourhoods below, all with a tropical ocean and island backdrop to have you screaming for more.

Get ready for an all-you-can-eat riding feast.
