30 Years Of Gravity
Thredbo is gearing up for a huge summer of mountain biking as we’re celebrating 30 years as Australia’s Premier Mountain Bike Park with the launch of our ’30 Years of Gravity’ today.
Thredbo is Australia’s home of mountain biking and offers the only summer-long chairlift access in the country with more than 34-kilometres of trails. Each year the resort attracts thousands of mountain bike enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
To celebrate 30 years of mountain biking, we’ve created a three-part video series looking back at the progression of mountain biking over the past three decades, featuring some of the country’s iconic personalities of the sport.
The first episode focusses on the ’90s when mountain biking first came to Thredbo.
Episode 1 | The 90's : The Evolution of Bikes
Enjoy a ride back in time! The ’90s is considered a golden era of mountain biking and a period which saw a huge amount of progression in both bike technology and trails.
Episode 2 | The 2000s: The Golden Era
The turn of the millennium saw Thredbo swap grinding gravel fire roads for the raw and rugged riding of single tracks. During this decade Thredbo cemented its status as the place to make or break a rider in Australia.
Episode 3 | The 2010s: Mountain Bikes For All
The third and final instalment of 30 Years of Gravity and what a ride it’s been. The third episode takes a look at the 2010s when mountain biking transitioned from being all about hardcore mountain bike riders and became accessible for all.
