  • Description

    The main event on the Saturday is not quite gravity enduro and not quite XC. It aims to be classically Kalamunda, with the emphasis on blasting the downhills and smashing the flat sections. It will be an inclusive event and aimed at a standard for all those that love to ride the Kalamunda blue trails.

    As a taster, it will consist of timed legs which are predominantly downhill and range from 3-5km in length, the longest of any “enduro” style stage race in WA. Most of these descents have not been used in previous races and will involve “reversed” trails to keep you on your toes.

    The unique event format will enable you to ride at your own pace and by your own route between individual timed stages, of which you can undertake in any order. That means you’ll decide the route, and which race tactics you want to employ!

    There will be only fast times per legs and a total for all legs being recorded, but entrants must return to the start village within a set time (ie 4 hrs) or risk a rolling time penalty for every minute they are over this. Professional timing will be provided by the West Australian Gravity Enduro, and we’ll be starting and finishing the event at the picturesque Mundaring Weir Hotel.

    The Sunday event is different again… With the help of Peel District Mountain Bike Club, Sunday’s event will see timed runs down the shorter Mt Gunjin trails but with a twist. We’ll be announcing more on this shortly, but reassured it includes shuttles and some pretty varied race categories.

    Please note that entries are currently limited to Saturday and Sunday or Saturday only at the moment. The Sunday only entries are currently limited to those under 15yrs, as we have had to limit participation numbers to ensure the shuttles can adequately service enough riders, and to avoid the event being too expensive. As such preference has been given to those wishing to race the two days for now.

    Entrance for the Sunday only will be made available after a set period if spots remain, however if you volunteer and help us at the Saturday event it would secure you a free spot for Sunday. To register your interest as a volunteer please email us at: [email protected]
