Australia’s only Urban Downhill – fast, daring and exhilarating, competitors race through beautiful Albany at speed and finish on the iconic Stirling Terrace. This year, beginning from Mt Clarence, riders will take an exciting steep route down the Mount. Using features not available to ride at any other time, this year’s course will follow a similar route to 2019,

Proudly support by Southern Bus Charters.
This year the 37KM & 50KM course will start once again on the beautiful southern coastline, travelling over some of the most stunningly beautiful coastline the region has to offer. Thanks to the Department of Parks and Wildlife the route will then travel through more breathtaking coastal scenery to the highly anticipated Emu Point channel crossing!
Emu Point will also be the starting point for our 17KM riders. The route will then travel through a variety of sneaky single track, grueling climbs and the ‘hidden’ highlights of central Mt Clarence and Mt Adelaide.
50KM riders will continue across York St before attacking the steep climbs and rocky descents of Mt Melville, then back to Stirling Terrace for a bridge crossing and sprint along the main road.
The Jump Fest event will be a display of aerial skills, right in the heart of the village offering the ultimate stage for riders to show off their tricks, kicks and whips! The Jump Fest delivers aerial skills and slope-style multi feature course with huge BMX jumps and landers built right here in Albany.
Entry into the Jump Fest is by invitation only. Competitors must provide proof of BMX AUSTRALIA membership for insurance purposes.
