The Final of the West Australian State Downhill Series 2014 was held in Albany over the long weekend in September.  Peel Districts Mountain Bike Club organised the race on the MT Clarence Downhill track, right in the middle of the picturesque coastal city of Albany. Over 80 competitors journeyed south for the event and a great weekend away.

The weather in Albany is notoriously temperamental and the race saw conditions changing faster than Beyonces outfit. Saturday practise had intermittent showers, and on Sunday the morning rain cleared and by race time riders were faced with a mostly dry track that was running fast. Mt Clarence Downhill is a short, physically demanding track with a whole variety of challenges – jumps, rock gardens, wooden berms and more!

Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy

WestCycle is pleased to advise that the first Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy is now open for public comment. The Strategy lays out the future vision for mountain biking in the state, which is now one of the world’s fastest growing recreational and tourism activities.

In WA alone almost 120,000 mountain bikes are bought every year. The Strategy is a guide to the development of sustainable mountain biking in Western Australia and highlights the economic, tourism, environmental, health, social and community benefits. Its vision is for Western Australia to embrace sustainable mountain biking as a leading recreational and tourism experience by delivering opportunities, maximising participation and sharing the benefits.
