Jared Graves is one of the most well-rounded riders in mountain biking with success in 4X, downhill, BMX and now Enduro. Giro visited Graves’ hometown and explored Queensland, Australia, (with American Adam Craig and Kiwi freerider Kelly McGarry) to check out the trails and learn what makes Graves so fast. In addition to kangaroos and snakes, the boys found Graves busy cultivating a cycling mecca in Toowoomba, dozens of dedicated mountain bike trails, a booming bike club and a local race series.
Giro discovered a bit of everything in this part of Australia—rugged singletrack, a freeride hotspot, good surf and a picture-perfect backdrop. Check these riders shredding the foreign landscape in this video.
