Rocky Trail Entertainment is one of the biggest cycling events companies in Australia.
Our crew revolves around us – Juliane and Martin Wisata, the main Directors of the business. We are two passionate cyclists and mountain bikers and have been riding and racing in Australia ourselves for more than 15 years. Our backgrounds are in tourism and events management as well as strategic brand marketing and sales. Together Juliane and Martin assemble a crew of enthusiastic crew members, hosting more than 20 cross-country endurance, downhill and enduro gravity events a year. We also like to visit our families once a year in our home country Austria, where we also teach a uni course on Entrepreneurship to Tourism Bachelor and Master Degree students.
Riding predominantly cross-country trails with the odd Thredbo downhill dash, Juliane fell in love with enduro gravity riding and racing – she says, “Finally I know what my favourite type of riding is called – I love spending a day out with friends, riding and racing, however, I’ve always preferred zooming downhill technical trails. One of my favourite tracks is Stromlo Forest Park, where I will always happily climb up to the Observatory, because I know that Skyline, Luge and Party Line are waiting for me up the top! I think that’s how I thought of ‘Rollercoaster’ for our own enduro gravity series.”
Martin has competed eight times in the Crocodile Trophy stage race in Queensland. Crazy? Maybe, but moreso addicted and in love with exploring those hidden Outback trails! He’ll sneak in a couple of road rides to train for it too – Bumble Hill in the Yarramalong Valley is one of his favourite challenges, easy to get to from our home near the Ourimbah MTB Park. “I just love that I can work and live doing what I love. To chat with fellow riders at club races, to ride and race with them and then to see their big grins across our finish lines is the biggest reward!”
Our Rocky Trail vision is to entertain, engage and excite cyclists and mountain bikers around Australia and be the leading mountain bike outdoor adventure specialist of choice. We want to motivate our racers to be active and have fun outdoors and we want to support each and everyone of them to achieve their racing goals. We want every event to become a memorable experience for all our racers and also for their supporters, families and friends who come along.
We aspire to be a contributor to the sustainable growth of the Australian cycling industry. Whilst considering environmental sustainability when we select locations and dates for our races, we have also built up a rapport with major land managers, local clubs and councils. It’s in our nature that we are always on the lookout and like to discover new MTB tracks and support event opportunities for the community.
We want to encourage people to discover how much fun it is to race a mountain bike and to meet fellow riders – let us tempt you to race the mountain bike events that rock!
