Downhill Air


September 28 to October 2, 2023

Our Downhill AIR is one of the marquee events at Sea Otter.

If you’re not riding – set yourself up anywhere along the track to check out the trail-side riding action – Big AIR and Big Jumps – a must do for spectators, family and friends!!! Then get back to the Expo Village for athlete signings and the awards ceremony. And of course a few cool down brews!

The event is an individual race against the clock categorised by age classes. The racecourse is totally gravity fueled and starts at the top of Mt Stromlo, following the flowing jumps and trail transitions which are roll-able or jumpable features, down the hillside to a sprint finish at the bottom.

Suited to either a long travel All Mountain bike or a big DH Bike. Come One Come ALL!!!

The folks at FLOW MOUNTAIN BIKE shine a light on what we will be offering over the weekend.

Prices - registration includes a 3 Day Pass to the Expo Village and Shuttle Services for qualifying and racing.
