Who Can Enter?

The Dragon Trail is a race for all. If you get real joy from riding, then the Dragon is for you! It is a race for those who love blissful single track and a craft beer around a campfire, a race for the recreational mountain biker seeking a new challenge, and a race for the elite rider hungry for the thrill competition.

Riders race solo and each stage is left open for as long as there is daylight for you to finish.  It might be your first mountain bike race, or it might be your 50th.  You might be from Tasmania or from across the seas.  You might be there to hammer the trails or cruise the stages. Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, the Dragon Trail experience has something for you!

Food / Camp

As the sun sets we circle the food trucks and light the campfires.  We tuck into some of the worlds greatest food and sample some of the worlds greatest craft beers, wine, and whiskey – because you deserve it.

Tales of the days riding are relived around the fires with like-minded people before retiring to dream of the next day’s adventure. There are various food packages (Food) and camping/ accommodation options (Accommodation).  We want to reduce your hassles so you can spend more time enjoying the experience. 

Supporters

One of our favourite things about the Dragon Trail MTB is that the environment changes across the 3 days. The race begins in thick myrtle forest and finishes in more open coastal terrain. www.dragontrail.com.au
