Derby started as a riverside tin mining outpost in the 1800’s, but the very small town made its mark on the mountain biking world stage when Event Management Solutions Australia first brought the Enduro World Series to the trails in 2017. Derby won the EWS Trail of the Year and Australian Event Awards State Winner and Best Regional Event in 2017, its debut year. EWS visited once again in 2019 to an excellent reception from athletes, media and locals alike.
When it comes to how those races unfolded, the stages of Blue Derby proved an unrelenting test of the world’s best. It’s not the remote location or the famously warm welcome of the local community that make this pro racer’s favourite destination - the speed and commitment required to wring a stage win from these stages fosters incredibly close racing - all in front of one of the best crowds in mountain biking.
For amateur racers, what could be more appetising than racing your bike on some of the most highly regarded trails on earth, in the middle of Tasmania (Lutruwita)?! Blue Derby has rocketed to the very top of many mountain bikers ‘must ride’ destinations and to not just ride but compete across its network is too good an opportunity to pass up.
Blue Derby has been one of the largest mountain bike projects ever undertaken in Australia and boasts excellent trail design, incredibly diverse terrain and scenery and great soil quality. Blue Derby Mountain Bike Park encompasses 125km of trails, with options to suit all skill levels.
Derby offers small town charm and excellent atmosphere, as well as a rich history and the must-see Little Blue Lake and floating sauna. Less than an hour away you can find lavender farms and one of the country’s premier golf courses. Derby is excited to welcome you back in March and April 2023.
Unfortunately we've had some technical issues in the system which means we've had to delay event entry for both Maydena and Derby until Friday 10th at 8pm AEDT (or 9am Friday 10th GMT).
Our developers are working hard to fix the problem and don't worry, your spot will still be available and we look forward to seeing you on the start line next month!
Thanks for your patience - it'll be worth the wait!
