The 13th annual Freedom MTB Race on Saturday, 9 November 2019 is at Nightcap National Park in the Byron Bay Hinterland in NSW held the day before an associated trail run event.
The date for the 2019 event was originally showing as 9 November on the event website but now as TBA; we will update this listing as more information comes to hand.
The Nightcap National Park is beautiful warm temperate and subtropical rainforest with amazing views from the top of nearby water falls (Minyon Falls) high up in the Byron Bay hinterland.
There are dirt roads, fire trails, and single track/double tracks; clay hard pack, awesome tree cover. There are fast, fun flowing climbs and descents. 99% of the course is in the forest. The course also surrounds the stunning Rocky Creek dam and catchment area.
Note that the team event is not a relay. Both riders ride the whole course together. Team times and prizes are based on the cumulative times of both riders.
