Over the Labour Day long weekend we had the pleasure of heading up into the mountains for the Rapid Ascent Bike Buller festival presented by Giant. The event went without a hitch with several stages over the course of the weekend including the 50km XC, brake burner, Super D and 25km XC stages over the 3 days. Giant Bicycles Australia was well represented with Josh Carlson, Murray Spink, Jessica Douglas & Sarah Riley competing in the event.
We had Trance X and Anthem X 29ers available for people to demo all weekend, riders were allowed to take them out onto the mountain for up to an hour over some fantastic trails! On hand to help riders be setup properly were downhillers Ben Cory and Jared Rando.
Congratulations to Murray Spink and Jessica Douglas for taking 2nd place in elite male and female respectively! Also we'd like to thank Rapid Ascent and Mount Buller for putting on such a fantastic event and congratulations to everyone who took part.
