Maydena keeps bubbling to the top of every reputable rider’s lips right now. The tiny Tasmania bike destination turned six years old recently, so it’s a toddler in bike park terms, but a giant in reputation.

Rhys Ellis has been the Ops Manager for a lot of that time. A Canadian by birth, and Whistler Bike Park local by situation, he skipped winter once and hasn’t really looked back. He packed his swimsuit, shorts and bike and went looking for year round sun with back-to-back summers. He slid into Maydena as it was opening up, fell in love with the operation and got stuck into helping build the trails and programs into a world class destination under the direction of founder and visionary, Simon French.

Maydena hosts the Australian Red Bull Hardline, the first time this epic event has been held outside of Wales. While the course that the world’s best downhillers, like Jackson Goldstone and Laurie Greenland, will be riding is going to be RIDICULOUS, the other trails in Maydena are just as captivating. In this short film we’re releasing this week, check out Rhys riding some of the shapes and snakes of Maydena that are open to you and I.
