Paluma Push 2020
July 19 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Paluma Push is one of North Queensland’s most iconic XC Mountain Bike races. It started in 2002 and is held on the third weekend of July each year. The event is an individual challenge as well as a great social ride.
Riders start in the dreamy Paluma Village, following a course that winds its way through lush World Heritage Rainforest, past the Paluma Dam, down into shady big timber and open cattle country and finishes at the historic tin mining settlement of Hidden Valley.
Take the challenge and do the Push. Be it your first time or your 10th, you are in it to win it or just riding with mates.
The Push offers 3 distances to suit all levels of skill and experience.
If it is your first endurance mountain bike race the 42km Recreational Course will be the most ideal and suitable course. This course is recommended for the novice (6 months or more of regular riding) to intermediate mountain bike riders with a good level of fitness and reasonable skill level.
The 53km course is a step up, if you’ve done the 42km Recreational Course before and/or are looking to further challenge your mountain bike skills, then the Intermediate Course is for you. It’s hard work but will be rewarding. This course is recommended for experienced riders with a good level of fitness and a competent skill level for single track sections.
The 70km course is the ultimate mountain bike challenge. It has long solid climbs and descents as well as technical sections along the way. This course is recommended for very experienced and very fit riders.
The event is now under new management by Outer Limits Adventure Fitness, who have partnered with Piper Promotions to bring you the ultimate XC MTB event experience.
