We are so excited to again be hosting the Victorian MTB Championship Series on January 22nd & 23rd 2022 in Falls Creek. A weekend full of cross country fun will kick off on Saturday morning with the Round 6 Vic XCO race weaving through our mountain bike park and out towards the scenic Rocky Valley Lake before finishing back in the Slalom Plaza where the winners will be crowned.
On Sunday the 23rd the fun will carry on with round 7 of the series- the XCM 'Mini Marathon'! If you're looking for a New Year's Resolution challenge then this ones for you, with over 700m elevation gained over the 22km course. Certainly not for the faint hearted, this epic challenge begins with an exciting mass take off through the Falls Creek village. Racers then make their way up to the aqueduct trail before dropping into crowd favourite MTB trails, Wishing Well and Flowtown, only to find themselves with the tough slog up Road 24. Once at the top, riders will hit Lorna's Link, Generator and Vortex before racing across finish line! The Falls Creek record for the Vic MTB Series currently sits at 59 minutes... Could you be the one to crack it?!
In the peak of January, the village vibe is pumping with plenty of places to sit, drink a beer or two and watch the racers cross the finish line. Check out our What's On Guide to find all of Falls Creek's finest dining venues, activities and events.
