I may be biased but I love the Dial and can’t wait to have the series visit our quaint little seaside town once again. This year we will move away from the 2-day format and will focus the event on the northern slopes, leaving Saturday for travel, practice and exploring the wild expanses of the majestic Dial Range.
The Dial is a completely different experience from other rounds with a mountaintop super raw old school stage mixed with a legendary flow trail and some bike park goodness. Us locals are getting an early Christmas present this year with some new trails on the slopes of Montgomery, perfect timing for our event. 😎
See Competitor Information
Distance - 25km / Elevation 850m
We have gained special permission from Parks to use the Mt Dial mountaintop stage for our event. It is a very unique stage as you climb and descend the same track. Please do not ride this trail outside of the event. We will organise structured practice sessions prior to the event.
We are privileged to be able to use the wickedly awesome trail located on Private Property. Please do not ride prior to the event unless you have permission.
DINNER @ CAMPING AT MOUNT GNOMON FARM
Guy and the team have come to the party once again and will be serving up a feast from the farm and garden on Saturday evening. Format will be a buffet style smorgasbord at great price of $35 per head, $45 with a home style desert.
