Tasmania has become well-known in the past two years as a dream mountain bike destination. So it is fitting that Specialized have now featured it in their Destination Trail series.

In this episode of Destination Trail, we follow Troy Brosnan to the remote wilderness of Derby, Tasmania. Jungles, pine forests, dry, rocky river beds—this corner of the world checks all of the terrain and flora boxes, and with only a handful of cafes and pubs to keep the isolated locals occupied, an epic trail network seemed like a natural progression. Join Troy and Specialized Australia employee, Patrick Young, as they leave the stress of the professional DH circuit behind in pursuit of loose singletrack, insights into trail building, and all-around good times.

The trail building in Tasmania is far from finished, with a further stage set at Derby, and more developments around the island state continually being approved. From Hollybank, to Derby, to Hobart and more - Tasmania is set to be our island getaway.
