The award-winning Redback, gives you 4-days and 6-stages of incredible mountain biking in Australia’s red centre.

The event is all about racing some good miles on your bike and then kicking back around the pool with new and old friends afterwards. It’s about riding in a truly awesome location, where the tectonic lines of the MacDonnell Ranges disappear into a distant horizon, with big blue skies, rolling single track and within a majestic desert landscape.
