Spectators will be treated to the commentary of Bob ‘Motor Mouth’ Johnston, who has an intimate knowledge of this epic Queensland event, having commentated at every Mountain Man event since 1975.

Event organisers have also managed to secure every model of bike that has ever won Mountain Man, which will be on display at Echo Valley Raceway. Past Mountain Man winners will take to the track on these historic bikes at lunchtime for a parade lap.

Nine of the past 11 Mountain Man winners will be making an appearance over the weekend, including the likes of Craig Dack, Jeff Leisk, Glen Bell and Troy Carroll. These legends will be meeting fans and signing autographs in the VIP tent.

There’s plenty of secure off-street parking available to spectators on ‘Freyling Park’, on the Corner Ruthven and Nelsen Street, for just a gold coin donation. You’ll then be able to jump on a free Stonestreet shuttle bus for the 1 minute trip to Echo Valley Raceway.
