Gravity Enduro & Downhill MTB Festival
Rocky Trail will kick off their downhill racing season with the ultimate Championship weekend of Gravity Racing at the most popular downhill and gravity enduro destinations in NSW – Thredbo!
Events will include the Rollercoaster Gravity Enduro State Championships/powered by FLOW Mountain Bike on Saturday and the RedAss NSW/ACT Downhill State Championships on Sunday.
Thredbo is the ideal playground for racers – the downhillers practice all Saturday and will get the chance to sneak in a Rollercoaster race. Racing will be on Sunday on the challenging and steep Thredbo downhill track.
For the gravity enduro racers it’s all about exploring the new Flow Trail at Thredbo on the Saturday – it’s riding with your mates and adding a bit of competition. The race track will require some fitness and technical bike skills and a give you a real sense of adventure – equally exciting for all types of mountain bikers including cross country riders, weekend trail riders, and downhillers alike.
Both tracks will be marked and open for practice on the Friday; Thredbo MTB will offer discounted lift tickets for all racers on that day. Rocky Trail event entries will include lift tickets for the weekend; combo-entries for both events will be offered.
Entries are closed.
