Paul van der Ploeg wins McKayos!

Teams & Riders

This weekend Falls Creek turned their attention away from the skier crowd and greeted an abundance of keen mountain bikers who took on the 2nd annual McKayos event!

Starting from the top of the highest peak next to the resort, riders had to chairlift and hike their way to the misty, snowy start line on top of Mount Mckay. Once the gun went off at roughly 1800m above sea level riders ran and rode their way through all sorts of conditions to the finish line at Bogong Village roughly an hour later.

Reigning champ and Giant ambassador Paul van der Ploeg took the start line as hot favourite and didn't disappoint after he ran through the snow coming out first onto the section of fire road and he never looked back on his way to victory on-board his Anthem X Advanced 29er.
