About

It’s time to open the local MTB season with Rockhampton’s annual showcase cross-country event, the Trek Rockhampton MTB XCEN 3 Hour Day/Night, back once again at the ever-popular Seeonee Park.

An unmissable day/night event, the Trek Rocky MTB 3 hour is always epic. There are categories for everyone, including juniors, senior guys and girls (Open and 3 x Masters), mixed teams of 2 and e-bikers.

As a trial this year, we have even included a "Retro" category for bikes 15 years old or over, with the onus on the rider to substantiate the age of the bike!
