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

We’d love to have your family and friends cheer you on and be part of the Dragon Trail experience.  While you’re riding each day there’s plenty for them to do, including a visit to Australia’s widest living tree, sampling the famous Pyengana Cheese Factory and swimming in the turquoise waters of the Bay of Fires.

Let’s hear it for these guys … bike mechanics are the unsung hero’s of Dragon Trail that are there when you really need them. Late nights and hard work are a part of what they do to keep your wheels spinning.

Tune Cycles will be at the race in 2022 offering the same great service they did in 2021. Remember you can add or prebook bike tuning or servicing packages to your entry at any stage.
