FUN EVENTS WHILST YOU'RE HERE
MAYDENA SIGNATURE EVENTS
Summit gourmet BBQ: Enjoy a feast 1,100m above sea level with a 360 degree view looking over the Southwest Wilderness.
King / Queen of the Mountain: Racers will have a dedicated start and finish at the top and bottom of the mountain, after that it is all up to you. With over 65 trails to choose from, racers will need to find the best combination of trails for their riding style to find the quickest route down the mountain.
Dirt Jump Sessions: New to Maydena Bike Park this year will be the Dirt Jump Zone. With beginner to advanced lines, don’t forget to bring your dirt jumper! You can register for sessions on the pro line at Guest Services.
If you are riding the week leading up to the event, the best bang for buck pass option is the multi-day passes for the uplift service. All event entries will include a mountain pass that allows riders access to the climbing trail network for the duration of the event.
DHI entry includes shuttles for Saturday and Sunday only. The DH tracks is open from Wednesday so a 3-day pass is your best bet to get practice on every day the track is open.
