Mountain Man Motocross is promoted as a joint venture; The ‘Toowoomba Motorcycle Club’, ‘Queensland Vintage Motocross Club’ and ‘Toowoomba Motocross Club’ have joined forces to not only celebrate 40 years since the inaugural 1975 Mountain Man Motocross event, but also to celebrate the achievement of all the past winners by having them there to witness the stars of today battle for glory as they once did, to win a Mountain Man Motocross crown. Past winning legends will be riding parade laps at mid day on replica bikes; the same as they rode back when they won the Mountain Man Motocross crown. All winning bikes will be on display in the VIP/Legends tent.
This year will be the beginning of a new era; the 40th Anniversary will re-establish the Mountain Man Motocross event and introduce the current MX racers and followers to a spectacular once a year event where future stars of Mountain Man Motocross are born. The challenging nature of Echo Valley will see the current top professional riders have their chance to become legends of the Mountain Man Motocross event with just one to be crowned champion for 2015.
The Event program will see the open class Mountain Man event as well as;
• Pre 78 Unlimited - Includes Pre 75 Unlimited
• Pre 85 Unlimited
• Pre 95 Unlimited
• Sidecars - Unlimited
• Junior Mountain Man - 13-15 years inclusive 125cc 2 stroke / 250cc 4 stroke

Motorcycling Queensland has given this meeting ‘Signature Event’ status on the motocross calendar.
The Mountain Man Motocross committee has a dedicated group of passionate MX enthusiasts.
There is an abundance of experience to make this event as big and significant as it was through the 70's and 80's. The Echo Valley circuit from its beginning was regarded as one of the best motocross tracks in Australia. The challenging elevation of the track had not been witnessed in Australia before 1975 when the first Mountain Man Motocross was held. Described as European style, it started the evolution of tracks being developed around the country and to this day is still one of the most spectacular places to race and for spectators to see up close high flying, beam blasting, handlebar to handlebar racing action.
Spectators will hear commentary and interviews from the “Motor Mouth’ of motocross Mr Bob Johnson, a legend in his own right. He will delve into the past with all the previous winners of Mountain Man, the legends of motocross and talk with the current stars when giving their impression of what it takes to be a champion of motocross and conquer the Echo Valley circuit. Mountain Man Motocross posters will be available at the VIP tent where spectators can meet the legends and current pro riders, get autographs and inspect the vintage and current race bikes during the day.
The Event is supporting 2 Charities, 'Riders Against Depression' assisted by Brisbane Motorcycle Club and ‘Ride 4 Disabled’ (R4D) as founded by Harley Quinlan and Ford Dale.
