Mountain Biking in Northern Tasmania and Launceston has taken off since the opening of Hollybank Mountain Biking Park and the first two stages of Blue Derby.
With the fierce fast decent of the Juggernaut, and the beautiful switch backs at home in the tranquil North East terrain. Northern Tasmania really is a Mountain Bikers dream.
Launceston and Northern Tasmania, the off season training ground of Richie Porte, really is every bit as beautiful and challenging as European roads. Northern Tasmania made headlines when Tour de France winner Chris Froome visited Team Sky teammate Richie Porte for some off season training and to compete in the Stan Siejka Launceston Cycling Classic. Since then Northern Tasmania has been gaining a lot of attention from cyclists world wide.
