2024 Cannonball MTB Festival Day 1 & 2 | 10th Year Kicks Off With A Bang

Posted on 13 Feb, 2024 in Festivals & Events

The 10th Cannonball MTB Festival presented by Boost Mobile officially kicked off yesterday!

On day one, the sun was shining and the vibes were high as riders got in some practice laps for the Fox Flow Motion Cup, Oakley Australian Open DH, Osprey All-Mountain Assault Practice.

Today was the first official day of racing for the 2024 Cannonball MTB Festival.

Kicking off with the Osprey All-Mountain Assault Race, competitors put their stamina to the test across a 6 kilometre racetrack that challenged even the most avid enduro purist with rock rolls, pinch climbs and steep switchbacks.

While the final times were tight, it was ultimately Ryan Gilchrist and Ellie Smith who took out the wins in today’s Pro Division. For the full event results, please click here.

A Huge Week Ahead

The action is only just getting started with the Fox Flow Motion Cup race going down tomorrow and Thursday, the RockShox Pump Track Challenge on Thursday evening, the all-new Maxxis Dual Slalom race on Friday, plus the famous Oakley Australian Open Downhill Finals and the Deity Whip Wars on Saturday.

The fun doesn’t stop on the race course at Cannonball either with a huge lineup of entertainment, live music and activations happening all week.

Tomorrow evening at 5PM, bring the kids and come along to Alpine Bar to meet the pros at the athlete poster signing session.

With daily DJ sets, a huge Cannonball Closing Party at Alpine Bar featuring a set from The Terry’s on Saturday night followed by the Official After Party at The Keller Bar, the live music lineup is stacked all week with free events.

We’re only just getting started… Bring it ON! For the full Cannonball schedule, please click here.
