You have probably never bothered to ride anything other than the awesome MTB park trails when you have gone to Buxton, but did you know that there are some pretty sweet fire trails around there with epic views and fun sweeping descents!

This race will see you do 2 laps, but each lap is unique. Lap one has more climbing and less of the single track where as lap two is shorter out there in the fire trails and the full Buxton trail lap. Passing through the Park HQ twice means easy access for special nutrition as well as a great spectator atmosphere

Shifty Fifty, Round 3: Buxton 50 routes

Ever been confused about what distance to enter at a Mountain Bike event?

Is 100 km too much but the other options are just side events?

The Shifty 50 Series is a mass participation Victorian Mountain Bike event series with only 50 km course options. Each event will be hosted in a different location and by different event hosts offering a variety of courses in terrain, climbing, technical sections and landscape.

50 km is a great distance, go for broke and if you blow up, shouldn’t be too far to the finish, or plug away and achieve the rewarding feeling of finishing such an event. Your training doesn’t need to be too extreme to achieve 50 km and you can try to improve on you skill and fitness through the series.

This is a series and points are being tallied. Each event will have trophies or medals for podium places and the series overall will have trophies or medals for the overall top 3 in each category
