The first Parys Island DirtMax MTB race was held on 7 March 2009 with 28 riders, in a lap formation – 10km (1 lap), 30km (3 laps), 60km (6 laps). In January 2010 the river was in flood so the island could not be reached, then the hard work started again. New interesting and challenging tracks were laid out and today it is becoming bigger and more popular with every race held.
With great sadness we must call halt on the Dirtmax MTB Race due to financial reasons . We would like to thank all participants and their families for your support over past 6 years. Please Note there will be NO Dirtmax ON 1 August 2015, all future races are cancelled till further notice. If there is anyone who is prepared to continue with the Hosting the Dirtmax MTB Race we will welcome it. Sad Dirtmax Greetings Philip and Belinda
