High up in the Australian Alps we returned to racing for 2016. Thredbo Resort hosted the event on their infamous Cannonball Run. Riders faced ever changing condition, heat, and the opportunity to ride along side many of their idols - Troy Brosnan, Jared Graves and Richie Rude to name a few.

Round 3 of the Australian National Downhill Series. For some it was their first race of the season, others their last. Unfortunately the team had some bad luck over the weekend with many crashes and a huge amount of flats. Main shoutout goes to Callum Dawes - healing vibes to you, mending a broken collarbone after getting bucks in the same corner that took of put Troy Brosnan.
