Members of Townsville’s Rockwheelers Mountain Bike Club are gutted that this year’s MTBA National XCM and Townsville Mountain Bike Festival has been postponed until 2020.
Club volunteers have been working tirelessly to repair trails following an unprecedented weather event dropped more than a year’s worth of rain over the city causing widespread flooding and significant damage to mountain bike trails.
The club has also engaged specialised contractors, however continued rain periods have delayed repairs and we have just run out of time to have the Mountain Bike trails ready for the event.
Accommodation in Townsville is very heavily booked due to the large numbers of uninhabitable properties, consequently MTBA have had to make the tough decision to postpone the event until 2020.
Please note we will be running club level races over the weekend with Gravity Enduro on Saturday and club XCO on Sunday – we would love to see you on our trails.
