The Blue Derby Trails hosted the 2015 XCM National Championships in May! This event was very well received by the riders, many of whom rode the trails for the first time at this event.

Irish-born Jenny Blair, winner of the women's national title said "Derby is the new place to be as a mountain biker.

It's going to be the new Australian mountain bike hub."

The racing in Derby was Round 7 of the UCI’s world mountain bike marathon series, and a key qualifier for Australia’s team for the Marathon World Championships. Results can be seen here.

Congratulations to all competitors, and many thanks to the volunteers and sponsors who supported the event.
